Zhang Wei & Hu Fang

Founders of the multidisciplinary Vitamin Creative Space, based in Guangzhou and Beijing

Zhang Wei (who sits on Art Basel Hong Kong’s selection committee) and Hu Fang (contributor to both e-flux and ArtReview Asia) this year celebrated the 15th anniversary of the multidisciplinary platform Vitamin Creative Space they cofounded. While the Guangzhou- and Beijing-based gallery now represents artists (Anton Vidokle, Lee Kit, Koki Tanaka and Olafur Eliasson among them), it nonetheless continues to operate with the ethos of an offspace, staging a regular programme of installations and exhibitions at the Sou Fujimoto-designed Mirrored Gardens in Guangzhou, including Hong Kong-based Pak Sheung Chuen, Zheng Guogu (also a founding member of art collective Yangjiang Group) and Lebanese sound artist Tarek Atoui, who last year was invited to perform The Reverse Collection (2014–16) at BMW Tate Live. After three years of development work, fellow Vitamin artist Cao Fei is the first Chinese artist (and youngest artist overall) to have created a BMW Art Car, unveiled at a launch in May.
