News - Behind the Ullens sale at Sotheby's

The Art Newspaper is running a very interesting interview with Chinese collector Guy Ullens stating that his dream of running a Chinese art museum is over and that he's looking to hand over the management of his UCCA gallery in Beijing to “long-term partners” and divest himself of the institution. He indicated that the Apr 3 sale at Sotheby's Hong Kong will just be the first of many. Once he has done this, he says he intends to spend more time on his charitable education work in Nepal and return to collecting young artists, with his focus now on Indian rather than Chinese artists.
