The Artling Opens Its First Physical Showroom In Shanghai
The Artling—an online platform and art advisory for art and design across Asia founded by Talenia Phua Gajardo—has debuted its first-ever offline space in Shanghai, China.
Displaying a carefully curated rotation of contemporary art and design from China and other parts of Asia, the 915sqft space is a private, by-appointment-only showroom, designed to provide an intimate viewing experience for its guests so they can get up close and personal with the works.
Dubbed The Artling China, the showroom is housed in a new creative campus in the heart of Shanghai's buzzing Jing'an district, which was designed by architecture and interior design firm Neri & Hu, the same visionaries behind such projects as The Sukhothai Shanghai and the new Alila Bangsar to name a few.
"China, and Shanghai in particular, has emerged as a critical nexus for Asia’s burgeoning artist community and our most discerning clients”, says Talenia. “We are calling this space a ‘viewing exchange’ since we will encourage interactions between people, ideas and our creative content, while fostering collaborations among local and international, emerging and established artists, galleries and designers”.
The opening presentation in Shanghai features new works by artists and designers including Xu Zhen, Zhang Ruyi, Pu Yingwei, and Shen Han, among others.
The Artling China is located at 1F, Building 31, No. 322, Jiaozhou Road, Shanghai, China. Find out more at theartling.com
