My Tank Your Pants is the name of the game and it’s an interactive party where guests swap clothes. Organizer Huang Yu-han (黃鈺涵), a fine arts student, plans to document and then exhibit the swap in art galleries. “I think the most valuable thing in contemporary art is that the viewers and the artists are sharing the same cultures of time,” she said. “I tried creating platforms for both sides to meet, to interact in a fun way.”

Interact they will, when attendees start trading clothes with strangers. Huang is offering prizes, such as a tattoo or a date with a band, to encourage guests to overcome shyness.

My Tank Your Pants is tomorrow night at 9:30pm at Pipe Live House, 1 Siyuan St, Taipei City (台北市思源街1號). Admission is NT$350 in advance or NT$499 at the door and include a free drink.
