Mar 24, 2018 Saturday 10:00 - 11:30
2F, Rockbund Art Museum (Shanghai 20 Huqiu Road)
We are honored to invite Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, President of Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo and Stefano Collicelli Cagol, Curator of Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo to have a public dialogue with the two curators of this exhibition--Larys Frogier and Hsieh Feng-Rong. Through this exchage, we expect to know more about the exhibition concepts, stories about the collection of the foundation, as well as a review of the close collaboration between two organizations and also the expectations for future cooperations.
Larys Frogier is the Director of the Rockbund Art Museum (RAM) in Shanghai. Curator, critic and art historian, he is involved in artistic and social challenges in post-global contexts where ongoing social, economical, cultural transformations demand new ways of interrelations, citizenship and reinvented creativity.
He curated numerous exhibitions and published extensive essays on the works of international artists: Adel Abdessemed, Nan Goldin, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Paola Pivi, Ugo Rondinone, Wang Du, Yang Jiechang. Larys Frogier taught art theory, history of art and curatorial studies at the University of Rennes, while he was also researcher at the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales (EHESS) and at the Archives for Art Criticism.
Previously the Director of the contemporary art centre La Criée in Rennes (France), he curated long-term projects (symposiums, residencies, exhibitions, publications) which question the links and ruptures between broadening transcontinental areas. Chair of the HUGO BOSS ASIA ART jury since 2013 at the Rockbund Art Museum, he is conceiving this new award, exhibition and research program as an evolving platform to promote emerging artists and to question Asia as a construction to investigate rather than a monolithic area or fixed identities.
Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo is the founder and President of Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo. After graduating in Economy and Business at Turin university, she approached the world of contemporary art as a collector, in the early 1990s.... Read More
