Robin Peckham

1 September 2016

Curator and editor, Beijing, China

Robin Peckham is in the unusual position, for someone who was born and educated in the US, of having approached contemporary art from a Chinese perspective from the very beginning of his career. After graduating from Brown, his first job was as a director at the Boers-Li Gallery in Beijing, before he moved to Hong Kong and founded the Society for Experimental Cultural Production (with Venus Lau) and, in 2011, Saamlung, a contemporary art gallery space that remained open until 2013. In 2014 he co-curated the major survey show ‘Art Post-Internet’ at the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, Beijing, and he was also editor-in-chief of LEAP magazine from 2014 until this year.
