When opened in 1989 as the name of Magnet Art Gallery, we founded the first digital archive and search center of art to systematically introduce artworks of Taiwanese artists and their styles and developments along with Taiwanese art history. In 1992 the gallery name was changed to Metaphysical Art Gallery, and until today it already has the history of 23 years since the formation in 1989. Metaphysical Art Gallery is a gallery distinguished and stylish, and the proprietor, Celia Huang, who has cultivated in art field for almost 30 years is well experienced, and not only witnesses the magnificence of Taiwanese art trend, but also put the attentive eye from Taiwanese art history to the territory of new international contemporary art trend.

Holding the attitude as establishing an art history of this country, Metaphysical Art Gallery not only introduces and promotes remarkable local artists, but also favors to plan centennial exhibitions concerning specific historical subjects. Focusing on quality instead of quantity, Metaphysical Art Gallery has successfully turned minor stream into the main stream. The honor of three out of eight winners of “National Award for Arts” so far - Zheng Shan-xi, Wang Pan-youn and Chen Ci-kwan - being from Metaphysical Art Gallery, left an important trace in Taiwanese art history.

In October 2007, we directed “3rd Life 4th Dimension International Animamix Exhibition” in "National Gallery" at Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall, Taipei, presenting remarkable contemporary artists from America, Japan, Korea, China and Taiwan,  such as Yayoi Kusama, Nara Yoshitomo, Yoshitaka Amano, Hiroyuki Matsuura, Gary baseman, Friends With You, Kim Dong Yoo, Dongguri, Tang Zhigang, Yang Mao Lin, Jang Tarng-Kuh, Liao Yu-an…etc. The exhibition has become the pointer for the coming of Animamix era, confirming Metaphysical Art Gallery's new future direction to lead toward international contemporary art. Ever since, we began many international projects to cooperate with many outstanding Asian artists and galleries, focusing on directing unique and stylish exhibitions to introduce extraordinary artists. Our goal is to establish a channel to realize the art exchange between Taiwan and the world through our passion, expertise, and precise insight.

Favoring to walk in front of the history, not only for the market aspect, Metaphysical Art Gallery realizes deeply the responsibility a gallery carries toward art. It has been said that art is a beautiful one-way road with no return. People leave and stay, and only those who pass the task given by time deserve the immortality; so to artists, and so to galleries.Opening hours:
