PARIS.- K11 Art Foundation has today announced a major partnership agreement with Centre Pompidou in Paris focusing on research into the contemporary Chinese art scene.

As part of its three year partnership agreement with Centre Pompidou, KAF will support the institution to further enhance its research programme and expertise of young contemporary Chinese artists. This will include the appointment of a Chinese curator who will work to develop an in-depth knowledge of the different movements as well as identifying outstanding young talented artists from Greater China.

Commenting on the partnership with Centre Pompidou, Adrian Cheng, Founder of KAF said: “With its widely acclaimed exhibition What about China?, Centre Pompidou was one of the very first international institutions to show its commitment to Chinese artists by showcasing the vitality of contemporary Chinese creation. It is vital to continue to identify and show outstanding new talent. KAF is committed to supporting young contemporary artists and curators from Greater China and we are delighted to join forces with Centre Pompidou to enable the institution to further expand its expertise in this area.”

Serge Lasvigne, Chairman of Centre Pompidou, said: “The Centre Pompidou is delighted about the signing of this Memorandum of Understanding with K11 Foundation revolving around the contemporary Chinese art scene, its curators and artists. Following the Memorandum recently implemented with National Gallery Singapore, this new partnership contributes to knitting ever closer links between the Centre Pompidou and the arts scene and networks of this particularly active region of the globe. Working closely with such dynamic major partners testifies to the Centre Pompidou’s continued international development.”

In addition to the partnership, Adrian Cheng personally contributed two major works to Centre Pompidou’s collection. These are: Zhang Enli's work The Material and the installation Corporate (4 Knives Groups) (2014) by Xu Zhen. The latter piece was donated by the founder of K11 together with David Chau.

Founded by Adrian Cheng in 2010, the K11 Art Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation that advances the development of the contemporary Chinese art scene. It provides a creative incubating platform to nurture artistic talent in Greater China, helping young Chinese artists and curators to develop their full potential while also showcasing them on the international stage.
