Freedom is nothing but a chance to be better.
We launched the Taipei Free Art Fair to create a platform without restrictions, promoting artistic freedom. Artists and groups from around the world, creating and interacting freely. Uncovering gems, unleashing potential, a space to be seen. To realize our greatest expectations in a place without limits.
The YIRI LIVING Foundation was founded in the spirit of combining art and life. Establishing the Taipei Free Art Fair in 2014, we’ve tried to host an interactive space filled with creativity and imagination.
