For the better part of their lives Henk de Heus and his wife Victoria de Heus-Zomer have worked to build up their business. The De Heus animal feed company has a hundred year history but it wasn’t until the last couple of decades that the family business from rural Barneveld boomed, becoming a world leader in animal nutrition, a multinational active in fifty countries. The de Heus-Zomer couple has invested a sizeable part of the resulting fortune in art. Since the late eighties they have... [more]

Zhang Xiaogang at Today Art Museum (TAM) December 9th, 2010 - December 26th, 2010

Zhang Xiaogang’s canvases since the early 1990s have been characterized by figures... [more]

      Last week saw the grand opening of the Minsheng Art Museum, an institution owned by a private bank that has been producing exhibitions for almost two years.
