The new face of ShContemporary

Colin Chinnery is the new director of ShContemporary, replacing Lorenzo Rudolf who departed after the 2008 edition of the fair. A Beijing-based artist/curator/writer, Chinnery has a reputation for bringing contemporary culture to a broader Chinese audience. He has curated such shows as Sound and the City, China's first major sound art project, and Aftershock, a survey of British art also presented in China. He was previously chief curator and deputy director at the Ullens Centre for Contemporary Art, Beijing.
