Since its founding, UCCA has collaborated with publishing houses, artists, academics, and designers to produce more than 60 international-caliber catalogues documenting its exhibitions. UCCA’s publication history includes many landmark catalogues that have been recognized around the world as valuable art-historical resources, such as ’85 New Wave: The Birth of Chinese Contemporary Art and On | Off: China’s Young Artists in Concept & Practice. Extensively researched monographs feature prominently in UCCA’s catalogue roster, contributing to the scholarly corpus for dozens of artists from China and abroad, including Olafur Eliasson, Elmgreen & Dragset, Huang Yong Ping, William Kentridge, Liu Wei, Liu Xiaodong, Pablo Picasso, Qiu Zhijie, Sterling Ruby, Wang Xingwei, Xu Zhen, Yu Hong, Zeng Fanzhi, and Zhao Gang. Notable among these is David Diao (2018), UCCA’s first retrospective monograph that condenses three years of research, writing, and editing into a detailed examination of the artist’s five-decade career. Exploring the exhibition catalogue as an aesthetic object has also been a consistent mission for the museum’s publishing program, inspiring projects such as the seven-volume “The Los Angeles Project” series of artist books. Other catalogues have won national and international design competitions, including Duchamp and/or/in China and Rauschenberg in China.
