J.P. Morgan was the exclusive sponsor of a new contemporary art exhibition at the Today Art Museum in Beijing, which recently featured 14 top Chinese artists.
The exhibition “GUANXI: Chinese Contemporary Arts” was a contemporary group show curated by Jiang Jiehong. Last month’s exhibit was a major art event to commemorate J.P. Morgan’s 90th anniversary in China this year.
Artists whose work was featured in the show included Qiu Zhijie, a contemporary Chinese artist who works primarily in video and photography, Xiang Jing, a leading female sculptor, Zhang Dali, known for his mix of graffiti, photography and sculpture and Shao Yinong, who created sculptural installations for the exhibit.
As part of the sponsorship, Han Jianghe, deputy professor of the Chinese Central Academy of Fine Arts and ex-director of Hong Kong Sotheby’s, was invited to give a lecture about the collection. Eighty migrant children who are enrolled in the art education program at Today Art Museum, also sponsored by J.P. Morgan, were invited to visit the exhibition with professional guides as well.
