Chinese Artist Yue Minjun’s “Warriors” Summer In The Hamptons

Yue One Of Most Popular Artists Among Mainland Chinese Collectors

Already a familiar sight at major art galleries in China, Europe and North America, 25 of Chinese artist Yue Minjun‘s bronze “Chinese Contemporary Warriors” have found a new home for the summer at LongHouse Reserve garden in East Hampton. Installed in the Reserve’s 16-acre arboretum, Yue’s bronzes find themselves in very good company alongside works by some of the most notable names of the 20th- and 21st-centuries, among them Roy Lichtenstein, Isamu Noguchi, Willem de Kooning and Yoko Ono.

As LongHouse’s executive director, Matko Tomicic, told GalleristNY of the decision to install the first work of Chinese contemporary art ever shown at LongHouse, “Every season we try to bring in four or five new pieces, or bring one site-specific installation…and this came to us as an opportunity.”
