The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) has not been shy about its efforts to expand its operations and reach in China. Last year, the California museum announced that it had made an arrangement with the Shanghai art collector Budi Tek, who has pancreatic cancer, to merge his private institution, the Yuz Museum, with LACMA.
In recent years, LACMA has been building relationships with partners in China while deepening our commitment to the study, interpretation, and display of Chinese art, particularly contemporary art made by Chinese artists. Dominic and Ellen are steadfast supporters of LACMA and our collaborations with Chinese arts institutions and artists. Their exemplary support for the acquisition of Zeng Fanzhi’s Untitled to LACMA’s growing collection of contemporary Chinese art underscores their commitment to Chinese art and artists, both in the United States and China.
