After a smaller edition last year due to Covid restrictions, Taipei Dangdai welcomed back international exhibitors and many new ones this week to Taiwan’s capital city. The locally focused art fair, held at the Nangang Exhibition Center and part of the Arts Assembly portfolio, opened to VIPs on Thursday afternoon.
At the fair’s opening, there was quiet, relaxed excitement as local collectors took time to view the fair’s 90 booths, including ones from blue-chip enterprises like David Zwirner, Gagosian, and Whitestone Gallery.
A few dealers reported first-day sales, with WOAW Gallery selling works by Kila Cheung and Charlie Roberts, and Soka Art quickly selling several of its pieces by Japanese artist Yuya Hashizume by early afternoon.
Below, a look at the best on offer at the 2023 edition of Taipei Dangdai, which runs until May 14.
