Adrian Cheng, Founder and Chairman of the K11 Art Foundation and the art foundation are pleased and proud to have supported the China Symposium (March 8-9, 2014) held on the two most visited days of the Armory Show, New York’s leading fair for contemporary and modern art.

The Symposium was held in conjunction with the Armory Focus: China section of the fair. Curated by Philip Tinari, Director of the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, Beijing it provided fresh insight into the dynamic landscape of Chinese contemporary art today by showcasing an exciting selection of 17 established and emerging galleries from the Mainland and Hong Kong, many of which had never exhibited outside China before.

The China Symposium brought together speakers from Asia and beyond, including leading artists, journalists, curators, collectors, gallerists, and academics for conversations that elaborated and clarified the state of Chinese contemporary art. It presented perhaps the most comprehensive overview of the art scene in China for a general New York audience and drew positive response.

The Armory Show, which closed on March 9, welcomed more than 65,000 visitors during its five-day run, featured over 200 carefully selected galleries from 29 countries. Exhibitors remarked on strong sales and attendance from key collectors and institutions from the United States, Europe, China and beyond.
