In the new Boldtype, find a review of Mahjong: Contemporary Chinese Art From the Sigg Collection and a link to wonderful pieces such at the one above, Black Car, 2005 by Li Songsong.
Swiss über-collector Uli Sigg deserves credit for the auction’s success. Sigg possesses arguably the world’s best collection of Chinese contemporary art. Mahjong is not only the catalog for his collection exhibition, it could double as a textbook on China's history-making artists. The book includes essays by leading figures such as Ai Weiwei, a curator and founding father of Chinese conceptual art; international curator Hou Hanru; and Li Xianting, who is regarded as China’s premier critic.
