Roundup from Art Taipei 2019

In the center of the fair, visitors stopped by to take photos or scribble on ALIXE FU

Co-organized by the Taiwan Art Gallery Association, Taiwan Ministry of Culture, and Taiwan External Trade Development Council, the 26th edition of Art Taipei returned to the Taipei World Trade Center under the thematic heading “Reproduction of Light.” While this year’s fair featured 141 galleries representing 12 countries and regions, the show remained largely East Asian in focus, with a significant number of Japanese galleries and artworks in particular. The 2019 edition proved fruitful; the preview day alone resulted in robust total sales of TWD 36,000,000 (USD 1,178,400).
