Grand Opening for Whitestone Taipei
With the opening of our new gallery in Taipei, Taiwan and our 50th anniversary celebrations, 2017 will be a special year for Whitestone Gallery.
Designed by the world-renowned architect Kengo Kuma — who designed the National Stadium for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics — our Taipei gallery features Kuma’s signature style of merging cypress wood into the structure of a building. Kuma’s design is the first thing visitors will see upon entering the gallery. Inside of the gallery space remains true to minimalistic white cube style with seven meter high ceilings to host groundbreaking exhibitions and installations.
