Elmgreen & Dragset’s first exhibition in Asia to date “The Well Fair” transforms UCCA’s Great Hall into a fictional art fair by dividing the museum’s signature space into multiple rows of rectangular booths. By constructing an art fair inside a museum, Elmgreen & Dragset investigate the desires that lie beneath the global urge to consume contemporary art and the spatial settings that define the art market. As a collateral event for the exhibition, UCCA invites director of Hosane Auction Co. LTD. Zhao Yong, director of ArtJeff Wechat Auction Hu Hu, director of Yidian China Qiu Tong, artist Miao Ying and director of artpollo.com Hao You to discuss the digitization of contemporary art.
*Collect your ticket from reception 30 minutes before the event begins.
