Asia’s oldest art fair is back. Art Taipei opens tomorrow at the Taipei World Trade Center and, according to Executive Director Emerson Wang, this year’s fair will see more emphasis on digital and installation art, as well as works that are inter-disciplinary. This means collaboration among artists, fashion designers and tech companies. Also on the bill are lectures by private collectors and art salons where visitors can sit and talk to the artists in a casual setting.

“It’s not just a fair,” Wang tells the Taipei Times. “It’s also an art village.”

Wang recommends checking out the Made in Taiwan section featuring the works of young artists. Expect an installation mimicking a scientific experiment by Chuang Chih-wei (莊志維). Also, look out for Wu Chien-yi’s (吳芊頤) whimsy, nostalgic collages of small alleys throughout Taiwan seen from the perspective of behind wrought-iron window grilles.

■ Tomorrow to Tuesday from 11am to 7pm; closes at 6pm on Tuesday. Taipei World Trade Center, Exhibition Hall 1 (台北世界貿易中心展覽大樓一館), 5 Xinyi Rd Sec 5, Taipei City (台北市信義路五段5號)

■ Tickets are NT$350 and are available at the venue or online. For more information, including ticketing, visit: art-taipei.com
