The Ullens Centre for Contemporary Art in Beijing is presenting Inside a Book a House of Gold, an exhibition of 212 editioned works by 192 artists produced in collaboration with Parkett since the journal's founding in Zurich in 1984. The exhibition takes its title from a poetic inscription by the most artistic of all Chinese Emperors, Song Zhenzong.
Affordability and portability are distinguishing features of Parkett editions, allowing collectors around the globe to pick up works by superstars, like Damien Hirst's ping-pong balls hovering on the hot air of a hair dryer, Jeff Koons' inflatable sculpture, Ai Weiwei's gilded fly swatter, Anish Kapor's spatial funnel contraptions, Andy Warhol's print of skeletons and Maurizio Cattelan's tongue-in-cheek self portrait. Many of the Parkett's editions have also found their way into the collections of major museums such as MoMA in New York.
