Taiwan has just acquired its own, truly international art fair: Taipei Dangdai, which was launched with much hoop-la in the capital last week. City buses were plastered with the fair's geometric blue-and-orange logo; lead sponsor UBS was present with a smart lounge while sleek BMW limos ferried visitors to the rather industrial, but practical, purpose-built Nangang Exhibition Centre.

Collectors, professionals and many usual fair regulars surged into the hall at the private opening, pausing at the entry to take selfies in front of a garish Yayoi Kusama sculpture 'Flowers that bloom at midnight list"'(2016) or clambering on to a plinth bearing a tree by the Taiwanese artist John Yuyi.
