Artist in residence at the Himalayas Art Museum Shanghai
Thilo Westermann is the new artist in residence at the Himalayas Art Museum in Shanghai. He will live and work with the museum for three months.
Himalayas Art Museum (上海喜玛拉雅美术馆, former Zendai Museum of Modern Art) is a young and ambitious museum, established by the Shanghai Zendai Group. Its goal is not only to exhibit original art works but also to encourage academic debate and to ignore the traditional definitions of what an art museum is supposed to represent. The collection of the museum is diverse, including artwork from international as well as contemporary Chinese artists. The museum wants to do more than just organise exhibitions, it wants to support academic research and offer artists, curators and the public a place where ideas can be exchanged and where there is room for debate.
With our exhibitions we want to help build contemporary Chinese culture. Supported by academic research, we present original contemporary art, from both local and foreign artists.
