Our Made in Britain exhibition opened this afternoon at Xi’an Art Museum. All went smoothly. Delphine & team did a great job on the installation, Linda organized the opening ceremony, Yan Ying the press, Lucy & Li Ning everything else, and we got a very big turn-out. So much so that Delphine was worried about the artworks. Our special guest was artist Matt Franks, whose Fooooom!! (2000) attracted a lot of attention, and his talk a full house with people sitting down the aisles. I did a TV interview in the gallery, which started with: “Tell us about contemporary art in the UK”. Anyway, all good stuff and a relief after two months of difficult negotiations.
