Shanghai Night KTV

1 year 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)

2 years 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”.

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.
