Cosmopolis #1.5 with the Centre Pompidou
Cosmopolis is a biennial platform launched by the Center Pompidou, devoted to artistic practices rooted in forms of cultural translation alongside ideas of cosmopolitanism. "Enlarged Intelligence" is the second major exhibition of the platform. Housed in a former electronics warehouse in the “Eastern Suburb Memory” of Chengdu, the exhibition explores how we draw on intelligent technologies to induce cultural transformation. OLI conceptualized the exhibition design as a notion of endless open space, in which lies a constellation of works by 60 living artists from more than 20 countries. Interactive environments and installations commissioned by the Center Pompidou alongside research-based artworks take many forms within this industrial infrastructure, provoking viewers to see the cosmopolitan social values of in a new light.
