A young collector. A young collection. In the middle of Beijing’s 798 Art District Chinese collector Lin Han opened his own museum of contemporary art at just 29 years old, with his first ever artwork purchase being a Zeng Fanzhi painting in 2013.
Situated on more than 2500 square meters, the young collector unfolded his private collection, ranging from paintings and sculptures to installations and video art. Featuring works from younger Chinese artists such as Luis Chan, Chen Fei, Duan Jianyu, Gao Ludi, He Xiangyu, Firenze Lai, Ouyang Chun, Xu Zhen, Yang Fudong, and Zeng Fanzhi as well as international contemporaries such as Kader Attia, Tracey Emin, Charles Harlan, Motohiko Odani, Sarah Peoples, Pascale Marthine Tayou and Yuki Yamamoto, Lin Han’s rapidly growing, 200-work strong collection, is as new and fresh as the wet paint inside. Here, we present works from the exhibition “Beijing Modern” at M Woods.
