      “In Taiwan, the older generation still buys at auction, whereas the younger generation is more open to exploring galleries; they are diligent in going to biennales and art fairs, they have lived abroad, and they are very much tastemakers for contemporary art,” says Shasha Tittmann, the Taiwanese-born director of Lehmann Maupin gallery in Hong Kong. The gallery is set to open a pop-up ground-floor space in Taipei’s Daan district from June to August this year, showing work by McArthur Binion, Robin Rhode, David Salle, Tom Friedman and Angel Otero among others.

The couple—comprising a jewellery brand owner and a yoga instructor—immediately fell in love with the place.

Usage notes[edit]

In the context of Hanyu Pinyin, Daan can be considered a misspelling of Da'an. In theory, a syllable-dividing mark (隔音符號隔音符号 (géyīn fúhào)) should be added before a non-initial syllable beginning with a, o, or e. Hence, Daan is not allowed since a word made up of da and an would be spelled as Da'an (cf. Da'an). In practice, syllable-dividing marks are often added or omitted at will.
