A Swiss Champion for the Art of a Rapidly Changing China – Barbara Pollack

From the New York Times:

That this broad sampling of contemporary Chinese can be seen in Switzerland is due to the efforts of Uli Sigg, a media executive who was Swiss ambassador to China from 1995 to 1998. Through a combination of business acumen, political savvy and tenacity, Mr. Sigg has gradually managed to acquire more than 1,200 works by 180 contemporary artists.

Some 300 of those works were selected by the curator Bernhard Fibicher and the Beijing artist Ai Weiweifor the exhibition, “Mahjong: Contemporary Chinese Art From the Sigg Collection,” which runs through Oct. 16.
