Paris Pompidou Centre seals Shanghai franchise art gallery deal

The Pompidou Centre in Paris, which houses the world’s second biggest collection of modern art, has sealed a deal to open a franchise gallery in Shanghai, French President Emmanuel Macron said Tuesday. Macron made the announcement after holding talks with President Xi Jinping during his first state visit to China. He did not give more details but the Pompidou Centre had announced plans for the gallery last July. It will show around 20 exhibitions over five years in a wing of the new West Bund Art Museum, which is being built in Shanghai’s cultural district by British architect David Chipperfield. The Paris gallery, which also has plans to open branches in South Korea and Belgium, has been in talks with the Chinese authorities for more than a decade.

S-AIR 2018 residency artist announced

Monday, January 8, 2018 – 11:45We’re delighted to announce Jeremy Hutchison as the selected artist who will take up a month-long residency at our partner institution npo S-AIR in Sapporo, Japan this February.Sapporo is the snowiest city on earth. The removal of snow is vital for the functioning of the urban infrastructure. During his residency, Jeremy will reconsider snow removal as a kind of everyday public artwork; a reductive sculptural process that underpins the city’s productive processes. This subject will act as a point of departure, opening up wider questions about the Japanese work ethic, reproductive labour, precarity and Zen.  

Jeremy Hutchison is a British artist based in London. Working with situational performance, his projects explore the relationship between power and production. Central to this inquiry is an interrogation of labour, and its contemporary forms under neoliberalism.

Recent projects have exhibited at ICA (London), Modern Art Oxford, V&A Museum (London), Fondazione Prada (Athens), Lisson Gallery (London), EVA Biennale (Limerick), Qalandia Biennale (Ramallah), De Appel Gallerist Programme (Basel), Bikini Wax (Mexico City), Jerwood Space (London). He has completed artist residencies with Delfina Foundation (London), Raw Material Company (Dakar), Hospitalfield (Angus) and Al-Mahatta Gallery (Ramallah). He was a 2015 fellow of the Whitney Independent Study Program, NYC.
