Some of you may want to know: Why do we host this appreciation dinner of the 10 years anniversary? That’s because by the time of the centennial celebration of Being3 Gallery, most of us present today will have passed away already.
I feel so grateful for many people, my partner, my young colleagues, our artists and collectors... We don't have too many traditions in art, and I hope we could establish this together in the future.
As we all know, there are troubling things happening in this world all days. Most of us would agree that if there is a painting, which our spirit can depend on, hanging on the wall, our mind would be well settled down. Just as Dostoevsky once said, beauty saves the world. Among so many kinds of trust and distrust, I want to say that beauty will save the world through rescuing our souls.
In addition, our Bing3 Gallery has a very ambitious idea over the next decade, and that is to exhibit the greatest art in the world as much as possible to our friends.
I’m so glad to tell you that in this place, No.3 Plastic Factory, in addition to exhibiting artworks from excellent domestic and overseas artists, we will continue to hold China-Italy Biennale of Contemporary Art in this museum-level art space of Being 3 Gallery. What’s more, we are going to invite the directors from Italy, Europe and even the world's top art museums successively, which will bring us the best art ever since the period of modernism. In addition, our art-warehouse have gotten nearly a thousand pieces of excellent works ready for your viewing and collection, and our three-layers-moon art space will hold dinner salons for artists, critics and collectors to communicate with each other regularly in the future.
Starting from next spring, we are going to set up an art center, whose scale is more than 6000 square meters, in the New York's Hudson River valley known as the core zone of the contemporary art, and there will be the spiritual and cultural homeland for us all in the east coast of the United States.
At the same time, our partner from Italy is setting about a modern art gallery in the art hot-spot Venice, where used to be an old power plant during the period of industrial revolution. Stay tuned as our raise plan is coming out.
The art history, is a history of art events as well as market. Nothing could happen out of the market. So we would look forward to the later comments about us comes out this way: Those old guys, with broad horizon, ambitious pursuit and good taste, leaves us quite some real wealth.
