BEIJING.- UCCA Center for Contemporary Art announced that Peter Eleey has joined UCCA as Curator-at-Large. Eleey will advise on the development of the museum’s exhibitions and programs as UCCA expands to Shanghai next month and continues its work at UCCA Dune, which opened in Beidaihe, Hebei province in 2018. Eleey will collaborate with the UCCA team to further elaborate its curatorial direction and process. He will also periodically organize exhibitions at UCCA and work to expand the museum’s program and partnerships from his base in New York.

UCCA Director Philip Tinari notes, “I have known Peter and admired his work for a long time. His role in shaping MoMA PS1’s leading program and expanding its capacity over the past decade makes him an ideal partner for UCCA during this next phase of our development. His remarkable curatorial vision, and especially his sensitivity to artists and audiences, will be a great asset to UCCA as we work to build a global museum for contemporary China.”

Eleey has worked with a number of important Chinese artists over the course of his career, including Cai Guo-Qiang, Song Dong, Zhang Huan, and Zheng Guogu. His exhibition “.com/.cn” (2017-2018, co-curated with Klaus Biesenbach), presented at K11 Art Foundation in Hong Kong and Shanghai, compared artistic responses to the different technological ecosystems in China and the West. Eleey remarks, “I am thrilled to join UCCA and its terrific team during this exciting period of the museum’s growth. I look forward to working together with the staff to engage new audiences and build on UCCA’s pioneering legacy of vibrant programming.”

Peter Eleey is a curator and writer based in New York. He most recently served as chief curator of MoMA PS1, where he organized more than 40 exhibitions between 2010 and 2020. In addition to his many shows of emerging and established artists, Eleey has curated a number of major group exhibitions, including “September 11” (2011), organized on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the 2001 terrorist attacks, and the last edition of Greater New York, in 2015, for which he led the curatorial team of Douglas Crimp, Thomas J. Lax, and Mia Locks. In 2019, Eleey co-organized “Theater of Operations: The Gulf Wars 1991-2011” with Ruba Katrib. He is presently preparing the first survey of Deana Lawson’s work with Eva Respini, which will open at the Institute of Contemporary Art (Boston) in fall 2021. Before joining MoMA PS1, Eleey was visual arts curator at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, and a curator at Creative Time in New York. He has written and lectured widely about contemporary art.
