This year, the Taipei Dangdai art fair returns after a brief hiatus. Featuring an array of modern and contemporary art, large-scale installations, and sculptures, the art fair holds a strong position in the art world. This time, we’ll also witness some incredible digital creations.
For the 2022 edition, the focus of the fair is identity. As a regional art fair with strong connections to Taiwanese art, as well as exploring the potential of creating new technologies that have been used in the last two years, the show will present over 1000 pieces by 200 artists to the Taiwanese public, in person at the physical art fair, and online through a variety of digital channels, bringing together 62 top-tier international galleries despite current travel obstacles.

The participating galleries will be showcased in three core sectors. In addition to the Galleries sector, Taipei Dangdai offers a unique sector known as Edge, which supports galleries created within the previous decade based on their overall programming. The third sector is Solo, which promotes singularly focused presentations by living artists.
The fair’s Galleries category will feature prominent galleries from across the world, with a strong representation from the Asia-Pacific area. The 2022 Galleries sector welcomes many new galleries, including international leading galleries LGDR (New York, Paris, London, Hong Kong), Galerie EIGEN + ART (Leipzig, Berlin), SPURS Gallery (Beijing), INK studio (Beijing), and David Zwirner (New York, Paris, London, Hong Kong), SCAI The Bathhouse (Tokyo), and Esther Schipper (Berlin). David Zwirner’s exhibition will centre on two of Giorgio Morandi’s most known series, “still life” and “fiori,” as well as works by visual artists influenced by or artistically connected to Morandi, such as Luc Tuymans, Josef Albers, Michal Borremans, and Raoul De Keyser. Furthermore, the exhibition will feature late works by Paul Klee, who influenced painters like Zao Wou-Ki. Ink Studio is a well-established Private Gallery in Beijing. Ink Studio primarily exhibits Painting, with a focus on Modern Ink Painting.
The Edge sector promotes and funds creative and promising galleries that have been in existence for less than a decade, pushing them to demonstrate the range and depth of their programming. BANGKOK CITYCITY GALLERY, Double Square Gallery, Gallery COMMON, NUNU Fine Art, Galerie Julien Cadet, and 182artspace are among the seven participants this year.
The Solo area is back as an undeniable focal point of Taipei Dangdai 2022. This year’s participants include the lyrical Chinese photographer Ronghui Cheng at UP Gallery, the young painter Felix Treadwell with Carl Kostyál, and the surreal sceneries of painter Charlie Roberts at Woaw Gallery, with a concentration on solitary concentrated presentations by emerging and mid-career artists.
Node, the public art sector, showcases large-scale art with an emphasis on spectacular and immersive works by regional artists, including installations this year by Shyu Ruey-Shiann (Double Square Gallery), Chiu Chen Hung (TKG+), and Hao Jingfang and Wang Lingjie (isArt).
Robin Peckham, Taipei Dangdai Co-Director, said, “Having experienced the transformations of the art world throughout the past two years from my home here in Taipei, we have reimagined this year’s Fair as one designed and built specifically for the Taiwan market while holding ourselves to the highest standards of quality and celebrating the curiosity and innovation that belong uniquely to Taipei.”
 Magnus Renfrew, Taipei Dangdai Co-Founder, and Co-Director said, “Evolving alongside the new shape of the global art world, this year’s Fair opens up several fruitful new directions. The Asian art market is shifting, and Taiwan is playing a key role in what is to come.”
The third edition of Taipei Dangdai Art & Ideas will showcase from 20 to 22 May 2022 at Taipei World Trade Center in Taiwan.
