The Tour This particular tour will focus on the interplay between art and architecture in a contemporary art context, highlighting, in particular, artworks and installations which attempt to bridge the gap between two and three dimensions and, conceptually, between art and design, purpose and functionality.
The Tour Guide – Amy Wood After working at MoMA in NYC to raise funds for the Yoshio Taniguchi-designed MoMA expansion, Amy moved to Beijing in 2004 where she became the editor of Art Asia Pacific. As an independent curator and art consultant, she also worked on many China-based design and real estate projects during the planning and design phases, including Sinolink’s Rockbund, a one million square foot mixed-use development which includes one of the first contemporary art museums in the PRC, the Rockbund Museum, designed by David Chipperfield, as well as the Hangzhou Urban Constellation Project, a cultural infrastructure development consisting of four museums for Design, Architecture, Urbanism and Fashion designed by Herzog & de Meuron. In 2009 she moved to Shanghai to work as the Director of Development and Communications for Asia Art Archive, in charge of programming for the Collector’s Circle, a private patron’s group benefiting non-profits. Her area of specialization is contemporary Chinese art and her abiding interest is educating new clients about how to integrate contemporary art more fully into their educational projects, commercial developments and daily lives. Amy has a BA in Philosophy and Music from Wellesley College in Boston.
