Collecting and Archiving: the Stories behind Chinese Contemporary Art

[press release]

Klein Sun Gallery is pleased to present a discussion, “Collecting and Archiving: the Stories behind Chinese Contemporary Art,” featuring Sylvain Levy (dsl collection) and Jane DeBevoise (Asia Art Archive). The program will be moderated by Eli Klein, with an introduction by Beili Wang, on May 7, from 11AM-12PM.

Sylvain Levy reveals his personal relationships with the artists he collects and the ever-changing landscapes in which they create, while Jane DeBevoise explains the nature of researching and documenting China’s contemporary culture at Asia Art Archive.

Entrance is free but RSVP is required. Please email ysabelle@kleinsungallery.com with your number of guests.

This discussion precedes the opening of the exhibition “New voices: a dsl collection story,” which features works by nine artists: Chen Wei, Gao Lei, Gao Weigang, Hou Yong, Hu Weiyi, Li Wei, Wang Yuyang, Wang Sishun and Zhao Zhao. Curated by Beili Wang, the exhibition is inspired by the dsl collection, a body of work procured by Sylvain and Dominique Levy that documents the multiple narratives of art and culture in contemporary China. The exhibition is on view from May 7 through June 18, 2016.
