The director of Taipei Dangdai, Magnus Renfrew, stated that its collaboration with the International Commerce Centre (高樓環球貿易廣場) at Hong Kong Art Fair was a success. “Based on the previous collaboration, we hoped to collaborate with the key landmark Taipei 101 during Taipei Dangdai since last year, and now we are happy that the goal is accomplished,” he said.
