Extended Services Throughout the Year 2019

Gallery Weekend Beijing has begun to extend its program offerings year-round, growing our platform for internationally-minded art appreciation and collecting. Weve worked closely with contemporary art professionals in China and around the world to organize a series of exclusive events, including exhibition openings, previews, professional guided tours, private salons, lectures, artist studio visits, private dinners, parties, and international art exchange trips. 


We hope by expanding our calendar we can cater to a broad array of individuals – young collectors who need an additional perspective, seasoned collectors who want to organize and refine their holdings, corporations, and art practitioners who want to enter the core of the contemporary art world.

The Gallery Weekend Beijing × Zurich Art Weekend exchange project connects the contemporary art landscapes of these two world-class cities, showcasing their respective art landscapes, expanding our guests understanding of the  countries cultures, and promoting a dialogue between public and private institutions, foundations, art galleries, enterprises and art sponsors.

Over the course of five days (the week before Art Basel in Switzerland), we arranged private guided tours and collection tours (including with Maya Hoffman, Michael Ringier, Ursula Hauser and other important European collectors), allowed VIPs to interact closely with the most influential figures in Swiss contemporary art, visited important scenic spots in Zurich, visited non-profit organizations and galleries under the guidance of curators, and attended parties, private receptions and VIP dinners.
