Mahjong: Contemporary Chinese Art from the Sigg Collection
HAMBURG  •  Hamburger-Kunsthalle  •  Ongoing

Swiss collector Uli Sigg, Vice-Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Ringier Group, has taken a keen interest in China and its culture since the late 1970s. Together with his wife Rita, he has been building a collection devoted exclusively to Chinese art since the mid-1990s, and can justly be regarded as a pioneer in this field. Having initially concentrated on the acquisition of new art, Sigg soon began to extend his collection to include ‘historic’ works of Chinese avant-garde art from the 1980s and early 90s.

This show provides an overview of a quarter of a century of Chinese avant-garde art (1979–2005).
