SONGEUN Art and Cultural Foundation have been organizing collection exhibitions to survey the directions of significant contemporary art collections. For the first collection exhibition in our new building, we are very proud to present Chinese contemporary art that belongs to world-renowned art collector Uli Sigg.
Dr. Sigg followed the Chinese art scene from its beginnings in the late 70s continuing throughout the 1990s while serving as Switzerland’s ambassador to China, Mongolia, and North Korea. Over the years, he has built the world’s leading collection of Chinese contemporary art with an encyclopedic approach. In 2012, Sigg donated 1,463 Chinese contemporary artworks to M+ in Hong Kong, under The M+ Sigg Collection. Today, this new landmark museum presents exhibitions showcasing the artistic developments in China over the past four decades at its Sigg Galleries.
SIGG: Chinese Contemporary Art from the Sigg Collection is the first-ever introduction of Sigg’s personal collection to the Korean audience and encompasses internationally recognized artists such as Ai Weiwei, Shen Shaomin, Ji Dachun, Yan Lei and He Xiangyu, along with recent works of the next generation of emerging Chinese artists to offer a glimpse into the present and future of Chinese art. We look forward to welcoming you to this first exhibition of Uli Sigg’s collection in Korea.
