Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has announced that as part of its Art Programme, it has entered into a benefactor relationship with Rockbund Art Museum (RAM), Shanghai. As part of this arrangement, the partnership will bring American artist Asad Raza’s work Root sequence. Mother tongue, to the Rockbund Art Museum.
The installation will now form part of ‘RAM HIGHLIGHTS 2017: DISPLACE’, a project which aims to transform the museum into a boundary-breaking experimental space, fostering a diverse and yet open viewing experience. The installation will mark the Chinese debut for the work, which was first shown at the 2017 Whitney Biennial.
Additionally, and most importantly, the Rolls-Royce Art Programme will maintain a relationship with the museum and artist, to further show the work around the world. In this instance, Root sequence. Mother tongue, will, after a six-day public exposure at Rockbund Art Museum, be reconstituted at venues which will be announced in due course.
The Rolls-Royce Art Programme has committed to creatively contribute to the fabric of the contemporary art world and seeks to work collaboratively with internationally acclaimed art institutions and museums, to bring the work of extraordinary artists to the public, which might not otherwise be available for public viewing.
