Travel: Taipei

This was my second trip to Taipei and it was real honor to be invited by Patrick Sun to experience the historic opening of “Spectrosynthesis” at Taipei MOCA. The exhibition was three years in the making and features a diverse group of Asian contemporary artists around LGBT themes in Asia. Sun’s passion as a collector has included becoming an advocate for the gay community in Asia by supporting many gay artists through his Sunpride Foundation, which in many regions still face systemic oppression and discrimination. MOCA Taipei is the first institution in Asia to acknowledge the contributions of the LGBT community in the art world and how significant they are. Many works in the exhibition were loaned by the Sunpride Foundation Collection. The event included lots of great food, opportunities to connect with artists and collectors from around Asia and a dazzling performance (literally) by Ming Wong and Cheng-Ta Yu. Patrick Sun is an amazing host and generous patron! The beautiful exhibition was curated by Sean C.S. Hu
