Chambers Fine Art is a gallery specializing in contemporary Chinese art located in New York and Beijing. It was established by Christophe W. Mao in New York in 2000. Recognizing the need for a gallery that would serve as an authoritative source of information on the latest developments in the rapidly growing contemporary art world in China, Mao named his gallery after Sir William Chambers, the celebrated British architect who was a leading exponent of Chinese principles in garden design in the late eighteenth century. During the first seven years, artists including Lu Shengzhong, Hong Hao, Song Dong and Yin Xiuzhen had their first solo exhibitions in the USA. Since then artists as varied as Qiu Zhijie, Tan Dun and Feng Mengbo have added different perspectives to the gallery profile.
In 2007 the opening of Chambers Fine Art Beijing in a building designed by Ai Weiwei greatly expanded the ability of the gallery to represent the work of influential established artists as well as young emerging talents. The following year saw the opening of ArtFarm, an architecturally acclaimed building by Ai Weiwei and HHF architects, in upstate New York. This is used for both storage and special exhibitions. Recently relocated to West 19th Street between the High Line and Frank Gehry’s IAC Building, Chambers Fine Art enters its tenth year as one of the essential destinations for all those interested in the latest and the best coming out of China.Website : http://chambersfineart.com/index.shtml
