This study analyzes the 'Artistic Gallery' at the Taiwan Hakka Museum, originally a 'simple' corridor designed for people to pass through while using the elevator. Leveraging the unique narrow layout of this idle space and the concept of 'art-infused space,' it has been transformed into a small, exquisite, and aesthetically pleasing exhibition space. This narrow corridor adopts the "Hakka Window" concept with multiple perspectives to present the diverse aspects of Hakka life from a cultural and artistic perspective. The study focuses on analyzing five of the exhibitions presented in the Cultural Art Gallery up to the present, serving as research cases with the following objectives: (1) Analyze the methods of cultural translation in the gallery's exhibitions to gain an in-depth understanding of how the exhibitions promote Hakka culture; (2) Analyze the forms of stylistic practices in the gallery's exhibitions to explore the role of exhibition styles in cultural exchange and understanding. The study proposes collaboration with local artists across various fields, setting diverse exhibition themes such as watercolor, Hakka poetry, indigo dyeing, pottery, and digital imaging. Combining artistic works and employing an integrative approach, a series of exhibitions infused with local "terroir" are presented, giving the corridor a fresh and meaningful identity. This enriches the essence of Hakka culture and reinforces the gallery's role as a space for cultural communication.
