Hong Kong gets first sight of the collection Uli Sigg built

This exhibition features around 80 paintings, sculptures, installations and videos by artists from the Chinese mainland, assembled by the renowned art collector Uli Sigg. The works represent a small sample of the 1,510 pieces acquired from Sigg by M+, the museum of 20th- and 21st-century visual culture that will open its Herzog & de Meuron-designed building in Hong Kong towards the end of 2019. In 2012, Sigg donated 1,463 works to M+ and sold 47 other pieces to the museum for HK$177 million ($23m). The exhibition arranges the works chronologically, tracing the evolution of contemporary art in China from 1974. This is the first show in Hong Kong of works from the collection; further pieces are on view in Switzerland, at the Kunstmuseum Bern and Zentrum Paul Klee (until 19 June).
