Galerie Urs Meile
Galerie Urs Meile, Beijing-Lucerne, represents Ai Weiwei, He Yunchang (A Chang), L/B (Lang/Baumann), Li Dafang, Li Songsong, Li Zhanyang, Liu Ding, Meng Huang, Anatoly Shuravlev, Not Vital, Wang Xingwei and Xie Nanxing: established and as well as emerging artists, working in various mediums, such as painting, photography, video, sculpture and installation art.
The gallery is operating from two locations (Beijing, China, and Lucerne, Switzerland). While the administrative center is in Switzerland, the Beijing gallery - which is situated right in the middle of the art and gallery district Caochangdi - has developed into an important meeting place for collectors, curators, and art aficionados. Apart from four exhibition spaces, the building complex designed by Ai Weiwei also accommodates the artist-in-residence program which the gallery initiated, offering Western artists an opportunity for staying and working in Beijing for several months.
