Richard Chang

Collector of Western and Asian art and key broker of ties between the two artistic communities

Founder of the Beijing-based DOMUS Collection (which includes largescale works by artists such as Laura Owens, Paul McCarthy, Olafur Eliasson, Arthur Jafa, Cao Fei, Ran Huang, Damien Hirst and Alex Israel), the New York-based collector and investment professional continues to loan works to major exhibitions (Tatsuo Miyajima’s epic Mega Death (1996/2016) is currently on show as part of the National Gallery Singapore’s blockbuster Minimalism exhibition), fund new productions (such as Julien Nguyen’s video Spiritus Mundi, 2018, recently on show at the Swiss Institute, New York), lend support to art events (like this year’s Ghost:2561 in Thailand, curated by Korakrit Arunanondchai) and more generally encourage cross-cultural exchange in the contemporary artworld. Chang is no slouch on the institutional front either: vice chair of the International Council at the Tate, president of the board of Performa in New York and a trustee of the Royal Academy of Arts in London keeps him busy.
