Dr. Uli Sigg joins the Advisory Board of Global Neighbours

03 Jul 2024

We are delighted to announce that Dr. Uli Sigg has officially joined the Global Neighbours Advisory Board!

Uli Sigg in his career traversed very diverse fields: from journalism to industry to diplomacy as Swiss ambassador to China, North Korea and Mongolia to venture capital investing and to art. Of his extensive interactions in more than forty years with the PR China, two are of historic significance: to establish in 1980 the first industrial joint venture between the PRC and the outside world which marks the beginning of the PRC‘s epochal globalization process; and to form the singular collection of Chinese contemporary art that can represent the story line from its beginnings in the Seventies to the present –  and then restituting 1500 works back to China, to the M+ Museum in Hongkong. He also established 1997 the Chinese Contemporary Art Award (CCAA) for Chinese contemporary artists now transformed into the SIGG PRIZE. 

He is a member of the M+ Museum Board, the International Council of New York Modern Art Museum MOMA, International Advisory Council of Tate Gallery, London and of the Board of Kunstmuseum Zürich. Of his various past board seats he now maintains membership in the Swiss IT-group AXON and in the Advisory Board of China Development Bank, Beijing.

We are honored to welcome Dr. Sigg to our Advisory Board and are excited about our future collaboration.
