A Selection of Artists and Places from China
Drawing upon our decades long knowledge of Chinese contemporary art, culture, and marketing, with the French creative agency Somexing, we created “The Sinoscope,” a thematic publication designed specifically for art and marketing professionals. In our first edition we showcase 40 creatives profiles (contemporary artists, architects and fashion designers) , all of whom centre their work around the theme “Humans”. The various artists presented in this inaugural edition, explore the concept of the body, intimacy, relationships, individuality and collectivity.
In an age of hyper digitalization and social distancing, reclaiming humanity and affirming what it is to be human in Chinese society and culture is fundamental. By exploring a number of carefully selected artists and their nuanced dealings with the human body, mind, and emotions we hope to present an insight into the personal, societal, and global issues that are top-of-mind for China’s younger generations.

Guided Art Tours
At Art Basel Hong Kong, I did guided art tours that focused on emerging Chinese Artists, especially the generation born between the beginning of the 70’s and the end of the 80’s.
Sharing Experience & Networks
Through a selection of favorite artworks, I gave to the participants a glimpse of the diversity of the emerging art scene and the market trend. I was thrilled to be able to bring my 15 years of experience, knowledge and contacts together in this programme. Art Tours are available on demand, with the possibility of ‘Meet The Artist’ or ‘Meet The Gallery’ sessions.
Louis Vuitton Foundation Paris
Bentu - Chinese artists in a time of turbulence and transformations
This exhibition at Fondation Louis Vuitton brought together 12 artists from different generations who live on mainland China. Using a wide variety of techniques and media, drawn from both local tradition and culture, as well as newer cutting edge technologies – sometimes associating with or confronting these concepts – the artists reveal the complexities of a society that is in permanent mutation. The works highlight the current state of the economy and our ecological situation, and most notably, the transformation of the relationship between the city and the countryside. Questions relating to identity are also addressed. (Excerpt from the exhibition press release)
This is the first exhibition devoted to contemporary Chinese art in France in the past 10 years. It is co-organised with the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art of Beijing (UCCA Beijing).
Participating Artists: Cao Fei, Hao Liang, Hu Xiangqian, Liu Chuang, Liu Shiyuan, Liu Wei, Liu Xiaodong, Qiu Zhijie, Tao Hui, Xu Qu, Xu Zhen and Yang Fudong.
Curated by: Suzanne Pagé
Co-curated by: Laurence Bossé, Philip Tinari & Claire Staebler
Invited by ARTER to work on the project, I assisted the curatorial team by coordinating the exhibition production with the artists (Suzanne Pagé, Laurence Bossé, Philip Tinari & Claire Staebler) and the production team (ARTER)
