Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo女士，她不仅仅是欧洲重要的收藏家，同时建立了艺术基金和一座公共性美术馆，致力于给年轻艺术家一个良好的平台，同时积极开展艺术教育活动。
Private art museums play a crucial and indispensable role in today’s cultural landscape: They function as an environment for cultural studies, a knowledge pool and a center for art education, documenting the moment and accumulating art history while laying the ground for future preservation.
Between 1998 and 2002, the number of newly constructed art museums in China reaches its peak. Multiple private art museums have been built and inaugurated. During this great volumetric museum-building period, today’s Chinese cultural consciousness has gained profound courage and many new experiences.
Up to today numerous private museums are on the rise. Considering the last decades, many questions emerge, such as How has their mode of operating developed over the previous years? or Which effects has the present cultural context have on their visions and missions? These are just a few topics which will be discussed at the talk.
The art talk Journey To A Private Art Museum, initiated by YUAN Museum Preparatory Committee in cooperation with Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Beijing Dealer, invited two special guests to share their exquisite experiences.
Mrs. Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, is not only one of Europe’s major art benefactors, but also the founder of an elaborate art foundation and art museum in Italy. She has devoted a great part of her time and passion to the activities in the museum, like the support of young artists as well as offering a dynamic culture education program.
Mrs. Shi Li-Sanderson, Executive Chairperson of YUAN Museum Preparatory Committee, combines her standard of skill, knowledge and foresight to plan and operate the future art museum. She has dedicated herself to the construction of a lively non-profit museum of Modern and Contemporary art.
The journey of building a private art museum is a challenging one, but on the way we come across various intriguing and fruitful encounters. This event is just the starting point of further interesting talks which will all be held in near future.
