Roundup from Taipei Dangdai 2020
By Daphne Chu
Following a chilly week of erratic rainy weather, the sun made a welcome appearance during this year’s Taipei Dangdai fair, now in its second edition. Set between a general election—which resulted in a landslide victory for president Tsai Ing-wen and the Democratic Progressive Party—and mere days before the start of Chinese New Year holidays, the mood at Taipei Dangdai was festive and relaxed, with a packed crowd at the VIP preview. Regional institutional and gallery directors, curators, artists, and collectors were seen wandering the booths at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center, though sales have yet to be confirmed, with low-profile, serious Taiwanese collectors expected to return to the fair over the next few days to make their decisions.
