Additionally, the Ideas Forum will return this year to unite industry experts across Taiwan, Asia Pacific and beyond to discuss how art exists in the past, present and future, celebrating long-term patronage with art and ideas across disciplines and cultures. The focus of the Forum for 2024 will be to explore “Collecting as Culture” and shed light on Taiwan’s rich heritage of influential collections.

At the core of Taiwan’s thriving art scene is a wealth of exceptional museums, cultural institutions, galleries, significant private collections, and the city is home to one of the longest-standing biennials in Asia, the Taipei Biennial held by the Taipei Fine Arts Museum (current edition of the biennial is on view until 24 March 2024). Coinciding with Taipei Dangdai, the city will host a diverse range of programming, which testifies to the dynamic and distinctive local cultural ecosystem. Exhibitions throughout the week will include the much-anticipated opening of the Renzo Piano-designed Fubon Art Museum in downtown Taipei’s Xinyi District, featuring “True Nature: Rodin and the Age of Impressionism.” Elsewhere, a major solo exhibition by renowned South African artist William Kentridge, held at Taipei Fine Arts Museum in collaboration with the Royal Academy of Arts, London, will mark the artist’s first large-scale solo exhibition in Taiwan. Additional shows on view in Taiwan during the fair will include a touring exhibition of masterpieces from the National Gallery, London – including paintings by artists such as Raphael, Titian, Caravaggio, Rembrandt, Constable, Monet, and Van Gogh – at the CHIMEI Museum, Tainan; the expansive photography exhibition “Civilization: The Way We Live Now,” which has been co- produced by the Foundation for the Exhibition of Photography, Minneapolis/New York/Paris/Lausanne, and the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Korea in collaboration with the Jut Art Museum, Taipei; and a solo exhibition of rising Taiwanese artist Musquiqui Chihying presented by Hong Foundation at Taiwan Contemporary Culture (C-LAB) in Taipei.
