Through the selection of key artists, practices, and issues arising from across Greater China, The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Chinese Art Initiative strengthens the Guggenheim’s collegial network among the Chinese art community and expands the discourse and investigation of contemporary art today. The first exhibition of the initiative, Wang Jianwei: Time Temple (2014–15), featured a sculptural installation, paintings, a film, and a performance by Wang Jianwei, one of China’s leading conceptual artists. The most recent presentation, Tales of Our Time (2016–17), was a group exhibition that included a robot-operated installation of monumental scale, a public tea gathering in an indoor garden setting, and immersive video works to explore and challenge the notion of place. All works created through the initiative will form The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Collection at the Guggenheim.

The exhibition is organized by Xiaoyu Weng, The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Associate Curator of Chinese Art, and Hou Hanru, Consulting Curator, The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation. Kyung An, Assistant Curator, Asian Art, provides curatorial support.
