Humble House Taipei plays co-host to Formosa Art Show

Humble House Taipei
 Design Hotels™' only member in the Taiwanese capital, Humble House Taipei, demonstrates a concept that merges art, culture and green living. Situated in Xinyi – one of the city’s most popular neighborhoods – the 235-room hotel is home to over 600 works of art which are displayed throughout the hotel’s many integrated art, living and entertaining spaces. Partnering with Taiwanese art stalwart Galerie Grand Siècle to present this year’s Formosa Art Show, the hotel is putting their appreciation of art firmly at the forefront.
From May 15-17, the hotel will display work from over 300 artists from a selection of 68 local and overseas galleries. As an extension of the fair, guests of the hotel can take advantage of complimentary private tours and access to Galerie Grand Siècle until December 29.

rt for Art’s Sake
Poised to act as a bridge between Taiwanese contemporary art, global art and the international arts market, the Formosa Art Show aims to increase the exposure of Taiwanese contemporary art worldwide. Exhibited over four floors, the art show has been curated into three sections: ‘Classic and Focus’ will showcase works by eminent Taiwanese and international galleries, ‘Up and Coming’ will highlight emerging artists under 40 years old, and ‘Limited and Unlimited’ will explore the novelty of expression via avant-garde limited edition art works. Highlights of the exhibition include the paintings Praise to the Moment by Taiwanese artist Po-Jen Teng, Transformed Cosmos – On Top of My City by Rae, and I Imagine by Sonya Fu Man Yi.

Made by Originals 
It’s thanks to Original and well-known Taiwanese art curator Ellie Lai, that Humble House Taipei has such an impressive art collection. The showcase features works from the UK, Poland, Israel, Japan and Taiwan and includes new media, photography, installation art, and sculptures. The works have been carefully displayed throughout the hotel’s 235 rooms and public spaces.
