Colin Chinnery has moved on from ShContemporary to devote more time to his own work, but will remain involved with the fair working as an advisor. Chinnery introduced a fresh vision to Shanghai's international art fair enabling it to become a producer of ideas as well an Asian outpost of the art market. His recent fair included Discoveries: Re-Value a thematic exhibition highlighting the confrontation between different ideas of artistic and commercial value and a conference co-organised with Hou Hanru on the theme Collecting Asian Art: What, When and How?
Chinnery will be replaced by Massimo Torrigiani, co-founder and director of Boiler Corporation, a publishing company and creative agency focused on contemporary visual art and culture, which also produces the Milan and New York-based Fantom – Photographic Quarterly.
