THE JOHN DODELANDE COLLECTION
John Dodelande is a French-Georgian entrepreneur and art collector who began his career by founding a fashion brand at the age of 17. Subsequently, he broadened his portfolio in design and was invited to invest in real estate in Georgia in 2010.
Over the past several years John Dodelande has built an art collection with a focus on mainland China, as well as other countries along the ancient Silk Road across Central Asia and the Caucasus. Dodelande has done this in parallel with developing his entrepreneurial business activities across the same region.
As Dodelande’s collection has grown, surveys exhibitions have been organized. He has also lent his work to various broader exhibitions and founded a patrons group dedicated to collecting work from across the Silk Road countries at Le Musee de l’Art Moderne, de la Ville de Paris. At the end of 2019, Dodelande’s collection holds some 34 artists from across mainland China, born between 1957-1988.
