If you’re in Taipei, Gary Baseman is opening his new major museum exhibition, “The Door is Always Open,” at the Museum of Contemporary Art Taipei.The exhibition opens June 27 and will run through August 24.


Featuring over 500 works created by Baseman over three decades, the retrospective is the most comprehensive look into his career to date. Baseman has approached the fine art world with the perception that “art is not precious, it’s magical.” Baseman strives for his work to be accessible and appealing to broad audiences, inside and outside of museum walls.

MOCA’s historic Taipei building is re-imagined into a unique experiential home environment in which guests are invited to sit on a sofa or at the dining room table and explore, participate and visit.
