Yuz Museum

Yuz Museum

YUZ Museum is an ambitious art museum privately financed by Chinese-Indonesian collector Budi Tek. Opened in May 2014, YUZ exhibits the billionaire art enthusiast’s private collection of Western and Eastern works considered historic to Chinese contemporary art. The space itself is a masterpiece. It was designed by Japanese architect Sou Fuhimoto, who converted an old aircraft hangar of former Longhua Airport into a main exhibition hall big enough to showcase large-scale “mega works.” One such installation is ‘Olive Tree’ by Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan, who had a retrospective at the Guggenheim in New York.
