Adding a new online sector to the Fair for 2022, Launch Stage invites highly curated platforms for digital art to showcase individual artist projects representative of distinct positions in the field, ranging from generative and interactive art to formal experiments and critical discourse. This year, participating platforms include Feral File, Art Blocks, Outland, and SOYL. Launch Stage will be presented across a dedicated mini-site on the Taipei Dangdai website exhibiting works from all four platforms simultaneously, and each work will be launched live from the fair in Taipei.
Returning for a second year, Taipei Platform consists of collaborations with partners in media and the non-profit sector, with a focus on experimental interactive events. Workshops will be led by Walking Grass Agriculture, ARTouch, CANS, HAGAI, La Vie, SOYL, Initium Media, OFF-SITE and FENKO Catalysis Chamber.
Taipei Dangdai offers one guided tour to introduce the historical and international significance of the fair highlights.
