As part of the executive education course, “Chinese Contemporary Art Award (CCAA) – a Case Study on Global Culture”Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK) and Connecting Spaces Hong Kong-Zurich invited Dr Uli Sigg, founder of the Chinese Contemporary Art Award (CCAA) and renowned art collector, to share his views on his collection. This lecture will share a good glimpse of the mentality behind Dr Sigg’s inception of CCAA and a not-to-be-missed opportunity for those who are interested in the Sigg Collection and Hong Kong’s M+ Museum.

  • Curating Chinese contemporary art;
  • Hong Kong as an example revealing the “local” and “global” aspects of an Asian metropolis and its cultural landscape;
