Lu Xun

1 September 2016

Nanjing, China

In 2013, Lu Xun opened the Sifang Art Museum in Nanjing, China, with his father, the real-estate developer Lu Jun. The Steven Holl-designed building is part of the Sifang Parkland complex, which incorporates structures by more than 20 international architects arranged over a 115-acre site in the Pearl Spring forest. The collection of contemporary art has grown rapidly since Lu began acquiring works in 2008, and includes a number of site-specific commissions by artists including Xu Zhen and Li Jianxiong, as well as works by international giants such as Olafur Eliasson and Anselm Kiefer.
