The venture capitalist, whose latest investments range from a Kenya-based college-course comparison platform to a Vietnamese payday app, has an equally diverse interest in art. Worms’s Kadist Foundation includes two physical locations for exhibitions and residencies, this year hosting Wang Tuo’s look at Chinese protest movements at its space in San Francisco (while Yina Jiménez Suriel and Erika Mei Chua Holum also had residencies); and a group show from the foundation’s collection in Paris (including work by Farah Al Qasimi, Joanna Piotrowska and Lisa Oppenheim). It also funds projects for others, coproducing Al Qasimi’s work for the Sharjah Biennial; a monthlong video programme at the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Oaxaca and a group show regarding mythologies at the artist-run Sa Sa Art Projects in Phnom Penh. International in scope and ambition, this programme has regional curators such as Magalí Arriola, director of the Museo Tamayo in Mexico City, Hyunjin Kim in Seoul and Adam Kleinman in New York on hand to advise.
