WHAAAAAT'S aims to support local and international artists, promote their artworks and engage with arts community in Taiwan and beyond. The fair creates an occasion for art collectors and enthusiasts to explore a great variety of artworks from around the world and discover artists with great potential in a cozy environment.
The inaugural fair, WHAAAAAT'S - STUDIO OPENING welcomed over 2,800 visitors over 3 days in January 2020, who interacted with 120+ artists in their uniquely curated studios. In addition, they actively participated in guided tours, art talks and interactive media art to enrich their art experience.
The fair is also a platform for artists to meet and engage with art professionals and patrons, including gallerists, curators and art consultants etc. Most importantly, it is also where artists gather together to network, encourage and learn from others, as well as building confidence to continue their artistic journeys.
The second edition of WHAAAAAT'S will be held at Sheraton Grand Taipei on 7-9 May 2021 themed WHAAAAAT'S - Now. We experienced a global outbreak of an epidemic since February 2020, led to an uneasy way of living under social distancing. However, nothing stops us from nurturing an optimistic mindset and sending positive vibes to others during this challenging period. Art is therapeutic, also the best medium to capture all happenings and deliver positive energy and care to our communities and the world.
