The Domus Collection presents a new ideal driven by a personal passion for art acquisition during a period of international change. Focusing on both Eastern and Western artists, the private collection presents seminal artworks to advance a new vision for critical contemporary benchmarks.

With its first annual exhibition of works by Anish Kapoor, Ding Yi, Aya Takano, Barnaby Furnas, Damien Hirst, Liu Xiaodong, Shi Xinning, Yang Shaobin, and Zhang Xiaogang, key examples have been selected from the artists’ overall body of work to acknowledge and promote cross-cultural exchange.

The Domus vision looks to build a unique repository of emerging and established contemporary artists to raise new questions about art internationally. By presenting ongoing exhibitions, the collection will continue to explore contemporary trends and practices, and offer new models for engagement. Domus has instituted a program to work in collaboration with institutions globally to ensure the collection’s continued commitment to education and advocacy of the arts.

Founded in 1997 by an Asian-American collector residing both in New York and Beijing, Domus, meaning ‘home’, welcomes a public view into a personal and private collection, in essence inviting one into their home. The Domus Collection will continue to maintain an ongoing global outlook on new acquisitions of both emerging and established artists.
