We are thrilled to announce the second iteration of Condo Shanghai, which will take place from July 13 - August 30, 2019. This edition includes 21 galleries/spaces working across 7 Shanghai venues.
Condo will present a series of collaborative exhibitions organized by international and local galleries across Shanghai. Shanghai galleries will host visiting galleries by either co-curating a collaborative exhibition or dividing their galleries into separate exhibition spaces. This year’s participants include galleries from across the world, from cities including Tokyo, Seoul, Jakarta, Baltimore, Los Angeles, London, New York, Guatemala City, Lima and Mexico City.
Since its first edition in London in 2016, Condo has expanded to New York, Mexico City, São Paulo, and Shanghai, providing international galleries more sites for creative collaboration and exchange. Its expansion reinforces the strong desire among galleries to develop new methods of community-based exhibition practices that can continue to grow with the expanding global art scene.
Condo arose from a reevaluation of existing exhibition models, a desire to pool resources and act communally, and the need to activate the gallery space in a different manner. It provides an opportunity for galleries to participate in an international art market, present their artists to foreign audiences, meet new collectors, and build relationships with other galleries. Through this partnership, Condo offers a more supportive environment for the global presentation of experimental exhibitions.
Condo Shanghai is organized by Lorraine Malingue.
