The Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain exhibits its Collection for the first time in China
Beginning on April 25, 2018, the Power Station of Art in Shanghai will exhibit a selection of 100 key works from the 1,500 artworks that make up the Collection of the Fondation Cartier. Born from an encounter between Hervé Chandès, General Director of the Fondation Cartier, Fei Dawei, art critic and exhibition curator, and Gong Yan, Director of the PSA, the exhibition Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, A Beautiful Elsewhere is an invitation to travel. A journey around the world, and an exploration of the territories, literal and imaginative, presented by the Fondation Cartier through the ensemble of its Parisian and international exhibitions since its creation in France in 1984. A voyage to the heart of multidisciplinary artistic worlds: photography with Daido Moriyama and Raymond Depardon, painting with Chéri Samba, film with David Lynch and Beat Takeshi Kitano, design with Marc Newson and Alessandro Mendini, and sculpture with Ron Mueck and Sarah Sze. The exhibition also presents artworks combining art and science with the installation by bio-acoustician Bernie Krause.
