Shanghai Night KTV

9 months ago

Shanghai Night is a club space located on 400, Caobao Rd. showcasing Mr. Qiao Zhibing’s private contemporary collection and must-see art site in town. The owner of this collection, Qiao Zhibing, started to collect art because of a simple need to decorate the nightclubs that he owns in Shanghai and Beijing. What initially began as a way to create an artistic ambience on the walls of the clubs, quickly developed into a deeper interest for the passion of collecting contemporary art, with Zhibing ultimately acquiring works by Chinese contemporaries such as Zhang Enli and Liu Wei, as well as internationally known including Antony Gormley, Olafur Eliasson, Sterling Ruby, Thomas Houseago, and Theaster Gates. Art Deco styled space and hip ambience lapped with futuristic lighting aesthetics form altogether a feeling that’s beyond reality.

MARe (Muzeul de Artă Recentă/ Museum of Recent Art)

1 year ago

MARe is the first and only museum displaying a permanent collection of contemporary Romanian art, not only in Bucharest, but in Romania too. It fills a gap and a need, voiced by culture-consumers searching for a place to see the art of the past 50 years in a permanent show. MARe is the only place where an insight into the problems, the ideology, the stylistic development and the relevant names of Romanian art since 1960s could be grasped by local and foreign public.

MARe is the only edifice in Romania specially and professionally designed as a museum. It is the first and biggest private collection of current Romanian art open to the public. MARe embodies the recuperration of the artistic sphere by the private, liberal, individual eye and mind, drawing a platform for a new, identity-feeding narrative consciously negociating between the disputed notions of “progress” and “conservation”.

Zabludowicz Collection

2 years ago

The Zabludowicz Collection is a philanthropic endeavour encompassing a dynamic and growing collection of art works with an associated programme of exhibitions and events in permanent venues in the UK, USA and Finland. As a living collection we are always looking to the future as well as safeguarding and conserving the past and have a long history of supporting public institutions and national collections.

Inaugurated in 2007, Zabludowicz Collection‘s London project space presents a varied programme of self-initiated group and solo exhibitions, commissions and residencies, drawing on works from the collection or new works by artists linked to the collection. The programme features initiatives supporting emerging artists and curators including the Invites series, which offers emerging artists without UK commercial gallery representation the opportunity to produce a solo exhibition and event, and Testing Ground, an annual season exploring art and education working with London’s premier universities.

The former Methodist chapel that houses the collection was built between 1867 and 1871, in the Corinthian style and was the main place of worship for the Methodist community in north London. In 1963, the building was taken over by the London Drama School, which pioneered the Russian branch of method acting in the UK. In 2004, when The London Drama Centre moved to new premises in Clerkenwell the building fell into disrepair. Zabludowicz Collection purchased the Grade II listed building in 2005 and it was restored with a minimum of interference to its natural fabric by Allford Hall Monaghan and Morris. It reopened to the public in September 2007 as the London home of the Zabludowicz Collection, its historical and layered architecture providing a rich and challenging space for the presentation of contemporary art. In 2010 the foyer was redesigned by Michael Marriott.

Collezione Maramotti

2 years ago

Collezione Maramotti is a private contemporary art collection that opened to the public in 2007. It’s located in the Max Mara’s building of Reggio Emilia, Italy.

Achille Maramotti, its founder, first conceived of creating a public collection of contemporary art some thirty years ago, and planned to make it an exemplary institution, open to connoisseurs and other interested individuals, in the service of the aesthetic and intellectual appreciation of art. He intended this collection to mirror the evolution of the most advanced artistic thinking of his time.

Up until 2000, portions of the collection’s holdings were exhibited for extended periods of time in the corridors and public spaces of the Max Mara building in Reggio Emilia’s via Fratelli Cervi, with a view to promoting a fruitful, daily exchange between artistic creativity and industrial design. One therefore sees a continuity in the decision to turn this building, once geared to the creation of fashion collections, into the permanent seat of a collection of contemporary art. The constant exploration of the separate but related and always evolving languages of fashion and art was Achille Maramotti’s central passion.
