The Lost Art of a Gallery

by swisscham in Culture & Society

Galerie Urs Meile is a Swiss gallery with a branch in Beijing, exhibiting contemporary arts. Of the 1,560 galleries in China, 742 are in Beijing. Fewer than 7% of the national total were able to make ends meet in 2012, said CHENG Xindong, director of the Art Gallery Association and founder of Xin Dong Cheng Gallery. “Working in China has become more difficult in recent years due to high import taxes and bureaucracy over the import and export of contemporary art,” said Urs Meile, founder and director of Galerie Urs Meile, a Swiss gallery with a branch in Beijing. “If Beijing is to have a chance to play a leading role among the competing art centres in Asia in the future, it is vitally important that those problems are solved and that the structures are improved.”
