Dai Hanzhi: 5000 Artists is an exhibition of works by Chinese artists with whom Hans van Dijk (1946-2002), or Dai Hanzhi as he was known in China, worked when he was active in the ’90s in China as a curator, art historian and gallery owner. The programme includes two exhibitions in Beijing and Rotterdam, and aims to give Van Dijk’s work visibility and recognition. Ammodo supports Dai Hanzhi: 5000 Artists to contribute to the development and opening up of the contemporary art scene in China and, in particular, to honour the work of Hans van Dijk.
