The Paris-Pekin Exhibition, which will be held at the ‘Espace Cardin’ from the 5 th to the 28 th of October 2002, is a presentation of Myriam and Guy Ullens’ collection of contemporary Chinese art, a collection which they have been putting together for more than ten years. A frequent visitor to China, Guy Ullens was confronted with an early phase of the Chinese avant-garde back in 1987, and has since become one of its most significant collectors in the world.
This exhibition, achieved through private funding, fills a void in the French art scene: to date, there has been no exhibition on such a large scale seen in France.
The range and quality of the artworks will ensure this project to be the outstanding cultural event of the autumn season, and it will be an exciting occasion for the public to discover and experience this extraordinary art.
Different generations of artists will find themselves side by side in a collection where over 120 works cover the various mediums: painting, calligraphy, sculpture, as well as photography, installation, video and performance.
