Ban-Doh @ FORMOSA” exhibition has invited Taiwanese artists and designers to be the contributors to this feast. With no pre-set topic, the exhibition provides great flexibility to allow creativity to flourish. Through this platform, we hope to promote and inspire originality amongst creators and invigorate the interaction between the organisers, exhibitors and the public. As an important milestone, the UALTWS is launching the first exhibition in London with the festive season beginning from the 9-13th of June 2010 at Candid Arts Trust, London.
UALTWS and the FORMOSA team have invited 6 prominent judges from different areas of art and design industry, including professional exhibition curators, visual director, and fashion critic, to examine and appraise those submitted artworks. Working with more than 200 art works from nearly a hundred artists, the artwork selected consists of a variety of visual arts, illustration, photography, digital arts, space arts, architectural works, industrial design showpieces as well as chic clothing and jewelry fashion. Fourthermore, there are 3 forums with artists during the exhibition:
