The Chinese Lives Of Uli Sigg


The Chinese Lives Of Uli Sigg


Presented with the support of the Embassy of Switzerland in Singapore

***There will be a post-show Q&A with Uli Sigg and Director Michael Schindhelm after the screening

Art world sensation Ai Weiwei credits him with launching his international career. Renowned pianist Lang Lang describes him as a mentor to Chinese artists. Curator Victoria Lu believes that his taste and influence as a collector has been felt around the world.

Uli Sigg is not a man who does things by halves. When he took up rowing, he went to the world championships. When he negotiated a joint venture, he wanted to create a model for future partnerships. And when he became interested in Chinese art, he built a world-class personal collection. Sigg championed the artists he admired, working tirelessly for their international recognition and to preserve their artwork as a record of China s tumultuous and historic changes. Eventually, Sigg became the Swiss ambassador to China and a consultant on major Chinese art projects, including the construction of the Bird s Nest stadium for the Olympic Games.

Directed by art historian Michael Schindhelm, THE CHINESE LIVES OF ULI SIGG is a history of China's recent opening to the West, and of the West's embrace of Chinese contemporary art, through the eyes of Sigg and the artists he championed.
