Our Conversation Series features intimate interviews with leading experts from around the world: collectors, curators, artists, gallerists, and museum directors.

 

 

The first chapter for me has come to an end - it was from 2004 to 2012 (more or less). I am very, very excited by a lot of the young artists whose work I see in China and that I can see at the Fair (and actually buy at the Fair). A lot of the young artists have done very, very well. There is also a new group of collectors that is emerging – quite a young mainland based collector group – that is very, very excited and moves very, very fast.

What is your take on China’s art market in 2014?
It seems very healthy, I must say. I admit that in the last two years I had a bit of doubt about where it was all going – but not just the art scene, actually China in general. I think things have now stablised and I think it is very exciting times.

Who are your favorite young Chinese artists?
I think if you look at work by a 25 or 28 year-old artist, you need to follow it for a while to see how it develops. Two of the artists [I am looking at] are Gao Weigang – who is not the youngest – but who is still relatively young, but already quite well established. And also Wang Yuyang – the sculptor - I also like his work very, very much. There is a piece of a new series here at the Fair, which I think is something really very fresh and perhaps quite revolutionary.
