> DESCRIPTION

Founded in Zurich in 1984, PARKETT is an art journal like no other. In more than eighty issues over the past twenty-seven years, it has produced limited edition works with many of the most important artists of our time. Taken together, these 213 works by 192 artists offer a collective portrait of the situation and evolution of art at the turn of the twenty-first century. The works cover every possible medium including painting, photography, drawing, print, sculpture, video, and sound. Some represent the essence of a given artist’s work; others reveal an unexpected dimension.

Installed across three spaces at Ullens Center for Contemporary Art (UCCA) in the form of a house, the exhibition “Inside a Book a House of Gold” takes its name from a saying by the most artistic of Chinese emperors, Song Zhenzong. The works are divided and exhibited according to the logic of domestic space, with a “Playroom,” a “Studio,” a “City,” and a “Wardrobe” framing a central “Garden.” Each of these rooms takes on a special feel and character, aided by radically different walls and other spatial interventions.
