TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Taipei Dangdai 2020 features contemporary artworks from 99 international galleries at Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center from Jan. 17-19.

The second edition of Taipei Dangdai art fair, hosted by Union Bank of Switzerland (UBS), presents a cornucopia of contemporary art in Taiwan’s capital. Taipei Dangdai was described by Financial Times as a truly international art fair, which attracted 28,000 visitors last year (2019), according to UBS.

There are five main sections, which include prestigious and young galleries and solo exhibitions. Additionally, large-scale art installations will be scattered throughout the venue and affordable artworks below NT$8,000 (USD $260) can be sourced in the “art salon” area.
