Japanese superstar artist Takashi Murakami is to launch his Geisai fair in Taiwan this December. The Taipei-based event is set to include more than 200 exhibitor booths. The biannual Geisai event, a springboard for emerging artists, began in Tokyo in 2002. The fair has been growing steadily in Japan, but Geisai Miami, launched in 2007, has been scrapped this year. “We would not say that Geisai Miami has been cancelled, but rather that we are simply building on our desire to expand the Geisai event/concept worldwide,” said a spokeswoman for Kaikai Kiki, Murakami’s company.
