shanghaiShanghai In a formal ceremony that witnessed the performance of a creation of a unique work by artist Qin Feng, Christie’s officially opened their new exhibition space and office in Shanghai at the historic Ampire Building, near the Bund.“When James Christie first opened the doors in London in 1766, nearly 250 years ago, his intention was to bring people art lovers together with the art they loved. Today in Shanghai we open this wonderful building that speaks of the history of the city, the tradition of Christie’s and yet also feels very contemporary and looks to the future. This building gives us the opportunity not only to bring art from around the world to Shanghai, but to bring the art of China to the rest of the world,” Steven Murphy, Chief Executive Officer, Christie’s commented in his opening remarks. “China now plays a hugely important role in the global art market. Nearly one third of all buyers are from Asia and in the last year, 20% of all new clients to Christie’s globally came from Greater China. We continue to lead the art world in our dedication to be an advocate for Asian art and culture on the global stage. During the last year, we have staged over 73 public exhibitions of Asian and Chinese art across the world. And today, we witnessed a wonderful artist, Qin Feng (born 1961), creating a work in a unique project that shows art itself is at the heart of what we do.” (photo shanghai)
