Andi Schmied | Artist Talk

31 August 2019

1-2pm | Free, no booking required

Join Hungarian artist Andi Schmied as she talks visitors through her John Hansard Gallery exhibition, consisting of two of her recent major projects.

In 'Private Views', while pretending to be a Hungarian billionaire hunting for a luxury apartment in Manhattan, Schmied got access to over 30 of the most exclusive condos of the city. In her Artist Talk tour, Schmied will guide us around these penthouses, show the sunset from Trump World Tower, the views from the tallest apartment building on the planet, and samples of the most luxurious materials used in bathtubs overlooking the Statue of Liberty.
In her other project, 'Jing Jin City', Schmied presents a seemingly fully functional, yet unfinished town in the North of China. Jing Jin City was built as a luxury resort, but most of the villas have yet to find their owners. The entirely fabricated landscape is kept in perfect order by a small army of guards and gardeners, who also make up most of the city's permanent population.
