In 1953, The British Council sought to protect and promote visual art of British origins. Since then, it has amassed over 8,500 pieces spread over 1,650 artists, spanning established and up-and-coming artists. Teaming up with the Hong Kong Heritage Museum, the Sichuan Museum, the Xi’an Art Museum and the Suzhou Museum, “Made in Britain – Contemporary Art from The British Council Collection 1980-2010” showcases 30 years of British art to the Chinese population. The work of the YBA (Young British Artists) features the work of Damien Hirst, Sarah Lucas, Gillian Wearing and Mark Willinger in an eclectic mix of formats. On a conceptual level, some not so subtle political themes are integrated into the foundation of some pieces. The exhibition will take place until October 9, 2011.
