Art news! The Rockbund Art Museum
, which is in its 10th year, closed earlier this week for what sounds like a massive renovation project. Expansions, upgrades, improvements, redesigns, the whole deal. We're talking Rockbund Art Museum v2.020 by time it reopens in September, if everything goes according to plan. Bali-based German architect Alexis Dornier, who designed this impressive beast
and also one of the % Arabica shops
in Shenzhen, is leading the redesign, and Swiss performance artist, painter and sculptor John Armleder is slated for the first exhibition when it reopens.
