Michael Goedhuis opened Michael Goedhuis Ltd in London in 1989, inaugurating the New York space in January 2002. Mr Goedhuis has spent two decades specializing in early Asian art. He has now returned to London to expand his concentration on Asia and Europe.
The Gallery's principal activities today are the promotion of the best Chinese contemporary art as well as Chinese works of art from the Neolithic Period to Modern.
Our current program concentrates on directing attention to the contemporary Chinese ink painters working throughout the world today. The Gallery is presenting a series of exhibitions over the next 18 months that highlights the importance of these artists as well as illustrates how bold and innovative their contribution to the development of cultural life in China is.
M Goedhuis believes that China is currently undergoing a true "Cultural Revolution" which is not confined to art but is manifest in film, music, theatre, design, dance and literature and is leading to a rapid expansion of investment in art by a new generation of collectors.
The policy of the gallery is to give intensive exposure to its artists in one-person exhibitions in London, China and New York and also through its network of art fairs in America, Europe and Asia. Michael Goedhuis strongly believes that contemporary Chinese art is still at an early stage of recognition both in Asia and the West. It therefore offers exceptionally exciting and fruitful opportunities for collectors and museums. The programme also encompasses the presentation of a wide range of Chinese works of art from all periods.
The new generation of Chinese is intent on retrieving their great cultural heritage and there is now a major drive to acquire Chinese art and antiques throughout the world. It is the objective of Michael Goedhuis Ltd. to participate fully in restoring important works to committed institutional and private collections in China, as well as continuing to stimulate interest amongst museums in the West.
