I was born in Taipei but I grew up in America.
I recently moved back to Taiwan, and well, I don’t know anything,
and it’s going to take time for me to gradually acclimate to everything!
I have a few questions; it would be lovely if anyone can offer me the answers …
What art scenes are in Taipei, is there an arts community (I am asking primarily about visual arts)? You know, art galleries, movements, museusms, whatever you can think of that makes up an “art scene” in Taipei? I’m an artist so I would love to know this.
Where do all the vintage clothes/accessories/items go? I don’t mean the throwaway unwanted items … I know Asians are not so big on old clothes as they are in America, but I am a collector and I do have a retro fetish. Items from 1950s, Victorian items, and so on (Okay! So it’s not THAT old, haha). Or perhaps there is some kind of antiques district? Surely there’s a place where unwanted vintage items go! There MUST have been some ancient deadstock or carefully preserved family heirlooms/hand-me-downs that are kept somewhere???
Thanks so much if you can answer me.
& I am also somewhat open to making new friends, I guess, um,
especially if there is a good understanding/experience of Western culture, and English ----
---- & being able to forgive me when/where I might come off as strange.
