Her many years at one of the preeminent museums in Asia, combined with her experience in the West, provide her with unique perspectives that complement our existing team across China and the region as a whole.”

You commented, “I am thrilled to be joining Gagosian, a world-renowned gallery and authority in the industry. We are experiencing a remarkable moment in China, as a new generation focused on art and collecting comes of age. I am excited to see these two forces combine and I am looking forward to bringing Gagosian’s expertise and programming to collectors across China.”
