China’s Millennial “Artrepreneurs” Think Outside Of The White Cube

Another excellent article from Tara Loader Wilkinson

China’s Millennial “Artrepreneurs” Think Outside Of The White Cube

Young art collectors in China are finding exciting ways to share their passion for art
By Tara Loader Wilkinson, Editor in Chief

Tucked away in an alley off Shanghai’s Huaihai Road in the shade of a Magnolia tree, is a small restaurant called Le Petit Cochon Vert (The Little Green Pig). Enter, and you will find a colonial home with a large white fireplace, exposed wooden beams and red brick walls. The food is in the style of European fine-dining – the sort of edible art made from wisps, crisps and colourful foam that leaves the diner open-mouthed when the dishes are brought in, and empty-bellied when they are taken away.

 

But this is no ordinary restaurant. Le Petit Cochon Vert is owned by second-generation Chinese art collector Chong Zhou. Instead of a gallery or museum, this is where 26-year-old Zhou choses to share his collection of emerging Asian art, although he jokes that he still cannot pronounce the restaurant’s name.

The new Medicis China’s young art collectors

The new Medicis China’s young art collectors

Three years ago at Art HK, the predecessor fair to Art Basel in Hong Kong, gallerist Ben Brown recalls a well-spoken Chinese boy walking into the booth. “He asked to see our Boettis,” said Brown, referring to the conceptual Italian artist Alighiero Boetti, famous for his colourful tapestried maps.

Minutes later the boy, who was 15 years-old, had bought an embroidery by the late Italian artist, costing in the region of $100,000. His mother transferred the payment over the internet.

This wasn’t a rich kid’s whimsical shopping spree, insists Brown. “He had done his research and he knew that it was a good time to buy a Boetti.” Sure enough, the average price of a Boetti has since increased by around 18.4%, according to Artprice, an art market information provider.

 

Stories of mainland Chinese millionaires amassing vast art collections are nothing new. China now has over 11,000 ultra-wealthy individuals (those with assets of $30 million and above, according to Wealth-X) while as many as 500 “market-dominating art collectors” are based there, according to art research firm Larry’s List. And collecting is gathering pace. Nearly half of Chinese collections were founded between 2001 and 2010, according to Larry’s List’s Art Collector Report 2014. Read more…
