Taipei Dangdai is a new international art fair, featuring a world-class line-up of galleries from around the globe, selected via a rigorous application process overseen by a committee of international gallerists.
Presented by UBS, the event brings together a selection of the world’s leading galleries and artists alongside influential thinkers from a wide range of disciplines, including archaeology, art history and technology.
The fair’s unique, multi-disciplinary program features four curated Sectors: Galleries, Young Galleries, Solos and Salon, providing visitors with an opportunity to discover presentations from established galleries, alongside work by emerging artists at accessible price points. An Ideas Program unites industry experts from Taipei, the wider region and beyond to discuss how art exists in the past, present and future, celebrating a long-term patronage with art and ideas across disciplines and cultures.
Taipei Dangdai celebrates the city’s unique and dynamic arts scene, while highlighting global creativity and the increasing importance of the wider art market in Asia.
