Taipei 101 promotes Taiwan through its New Year’s Eve fireworks show and a partnership with the Tokyo Skytree. Now it has also opened a new arts gallery that will promote Taiwan’s “soft power.” 

In this space are works from leading Taiwanese artists exhibited beside large-scale installations. This is Gallery 101, which opened today on the first floor hall of Taipei 101. Its first exhibition presents classic Taiwanese artworks.

Lin Ching-wen
Arts Company Director
We only had 21 days preparation time. I truly have a great deal of respect and gratitude for this team.

Taipei 101 is not only a place of commerce but also a cultural ambassador for the nation.

Wei Ying-chiao
Taipei 101 Chief Executive
Taiwanese culture should find ways to connect with the rest of the world. It doesn’t matter how small Taiwan is; we can use art to cross borders and link to the rest of the globe.

Besides shopping, visitors to Taipei 101 can now enjoy a taste of Taiwanese culture.
