The South China Morning Post talked to Lin Han and Wanwan Lei who founded the M Woods Museum in Beijing were on the Grand Tour—Venice, Documenta in Kassel and Athens, Munster, Basel—this Summer:
“When we planned for this trip, we wanted to focus on art. On the road we went to many important and meaningful exhibitions in small towns, meeting a lot of artists and curators. To us it was a research trip. We were there to do our homework. We wanted to experience these artistic events and museums, and take references that could inspire our work,” said Lin. “Our mission was to see and to learn rather than buying art.”
[…] They are both 30 years old and were educated in Britain – Lin studied animation design while Lei read art history. Lin’s first art acquisition was a Zeng Fanzhi painting at a Sotheby’s auction in 2013.
