2019 Free Art Fair Application Instructions

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.

2019 Free Art Fair
Annual Theme: L O V E

Maybe in another era, another world, a grand magnificent banquet could exist; its ingredients the clashing elements of romance versus sex, the spirit versus the flesh, and all that which we call desire. Our need to explore these “ingredients” is what makes us human. In this banquet, nothing is eternal. Not love, not friendship. Let these fantastic yet seductive manifestations dance freely upon the stage. In the words of Italian master director Federico Fellini, “Dreams are the only reality.”
