The Rubell Family Collection in Miami is planning to stage an exhibition of Chinese contemporary art next year in collaboration with the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art in Beijing. The show, which will include the work of around 25 artists aged under 35, is due to open in December 2013, to coincide with Art Basel Miami Beach. The collector Mera Rubell tells The Art Newspaper that she and her husband, Don, recently travelled to China, where they visited art fairs in Shanghai as well as the studios of several artists. “There’s so much going on there. It’s a very exciting time for the arts,” she says, adding that the exhibition will have different presentations in Miami and Beijing. “It will be the same show with two different perspectives. The Ullens Center is going to have more than 60 artists; we’re going to present a number of the same ones in Miami,” she says.
