Pictet – In conversation with Uli Sigg

Uli Sigg on building one of the world’s largest collections of contemporary Chinese art

Uli Sigg first encountered the Chinese art scene back in the late 1970s, when he first visited the country. Over the next few years, that initial curiosity became a genuine passion, a passion which drove Uli to start collecting contemporary Chinese art throughout the 80s and 90s, as he served as Switzerland's ambassador to China, Mongolia and North Korea. Today, his is one of the largest and most influential collections of Chinese art in the world. In this conversation, Uli tells Victor Aerni, CEO of PWM Asia, about what he calls his “encyclopaedic” approach to collecting and shares some advice on how to begin acquiring art and building a meaningful and coherent collection.
