China may be in the midst of a massive slowdown but that hasn’t stopped Adrian Cheng from expanding his museum and mall retail concept within Mainland China, The Art Newspaper announces:
“We have 19 projects planned under the K11 brand, all of which are in China. When I say project, it includes mostly museum- retail art malls and also offices. Hong Kong and Shanghai are both in operation, so the remainder will be ready by 2020, and indeed, all will show art.” An exhibition of works by Salvador Dalí, on loan from the Spanish-based Fundación Gala-Salvador Dalí, is due to open at the chi K11 art space in the basement of the K11 art mall in Shanghai later this year (5 November-15 February 2016). Meanwhile, the K11 Art Foundation and the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) in London are collaborating on a series of exhibitions in a bid to foster cultural exchange between the UK capital and China.
