Centre Pompidou, Paris

The K11 Art Foundation (KAF) and Centre Pompidou, Paris are delighted to announce the appointment of Yung Ma as Curator, Contemporary and Prospective Creation Department, at the Centre Pompidou in Paris. The appointment commenced on 13 June 2016. With this appointment Centre Pompidou continues its ambitious international research programme, this partnership allowing it to deepen its knowledge of contemporary Chinese art. It is a significant milestone of KAF’s three-year partnership with Centre Pompidou, and it is also part of their mission to expand international opportunities for outstanding Chinese contemporary artists.

Yung Ma is a dynamic curator specialising in the field of contemporary art and moving image. He has extensive experience and a deep understanding of East Asian and Southeast Asian contemporary art practices and film discourses, and brings to the museum longstanding connections with a network of artists and organisations from the Greater China region. His exhibitions and work have explored themes of global migration and urban identity.

With this new role, Yung Ma focuses on developing an in-depth knowledge of different movements, as well as identifying outstanding young artists, from Greater China. Over the course of his three-year tenure, Yung Ma also has opportunities to organise with Centre Pompidou’s team, a number of programmes, co-presented by KAF.
