  • UCCA Foundation Council

    Established in October 2012, the Patrons Council is the UCCA’s most important body of patrons, which offers support and direction to the Center in all fields. Acting as a Chinese and international network of distinguished collectors and art patrons, the Patrons Council represents a shared commitment to furthering the status of contemporary art and culture in China. Under the guidance of Philip Tinari, Director of Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, Council members enjoy an annual program of private events, consultation services and travel opportunities in recognition of their generous support.

  • The UCCA Gala

    The UCCA Gala and Benefit Auction is UCCA’s largest annual fundraising event, and one of the most important social happenings on the annual calendar of the Beijing art world. Held in the UCCA Great Hall, it brings together artists, patrons, gallerists, and other supporters to celebrate UCCA’s legacy and secure its future. An evening of food, entertainment, and conviviality, it celebrates the vibrancy of contemporary Chinese culture. In addition, a Benefit Auction will feature works by emerging and established artists who have exhibited at UCCA over the past two years, offering another opportunity for support. All proceeds from The UCCA Gala support the Center’s annual calendar of exhibitions, public programs, and other not-for-profit events, and help to ensure the long-term development of one of China’s most dynamic contemporary art institutions.
