M+ Sigg Collection
23 February - 5 April 2016
M+, Hong Kong’s museum of visual culture, presents M+ Sigg Collection: Four Decades of Chinese Contemporary Art at ArtisTree, Taikoo Place.
Comprising more than eighty works by fifty artists – including Ai Weiwei, Fang Lijun, Geng Jianyi, Huang Yong Ping, Zhang Peili, and Zhang Xiaogang – this is the first-ever chronological exhibition about the emergence of Chinese contemporary art. It shows both the development of Chinese contemporary art and a glimpse of the collection that will be on display when the M+ building opens in 2019.
For this exhibition, M+ has selected from its M+ Sigg Collection seminal works of painting, sculpture, photography, performance documentation, video and installation to illustrate the evolution of Chinese contemporary art – from its inception at the end of the Cultural Revolution up to today’s vibrant art scene.
A series of learning programmes – including guided, curator-led, and access tours; teachers’ workshops; and a talk – accompany the exhibition. For more information regarding learning programmes and special opening hours, please visit http://www.westkowloon.hk/siggcollection
