Club Metis Shanghai #2

Club Metis

Luxury, Brands and Art:
Passion or Perversion?

Manipulation or Creativity?

Why do luxury brands engage in Art? Pure, creative alchemy or a rebellious and insolent provocation? Club Metis invites you to join in the discussion about the role of brands in Art through numerous awards, foundations and expositions.

Larys Frogier, Director of Rockbund Art Museum (RAM) will be our guest speaker and he will talk about Contemporary Chinese Art and their different forms of cooperation between the artistic structures and the luxury brands. He will speak about the recent collaboration between RAM Shanghai and the Hugo Boss Asian Art Foundation.

Catherine Becker is the author of the new book on the understanding of social transformation of China through brands and Contemporary Art. She will introduce her topic, which is how for China, like the rest of the world, luxury could change the civilization in the most impactful way.

Thursday, September 26rd. From 7.30pm at The Foundry

The presentation will be in French, Chinese or English translation by request.
