studio rouge is a platform for outstanding art from both established and emerging artists of China.
George Michell established studio rouge with its ethereal white space and lofty Victorian ceilings at the Bund in 2004. The gallery is housed in the oldest building of Shanghai’s former British concession with an impressive space age vista of Pudong at its door.
In September 2006 the gallery expanded with the opening of its second exhibition space studio rouge M50, joining the maze of galleries and artist studios in Shanghai’s Moganshan Road Creative Art Centre on Suzhou Creek.
Since 2009, studio rouge and the island6 art collective (六岛) have maintained a close relationship of mutual respect and support. In 2011, George featured one of island6's interactive pieces, "Nordic Vibe", in his latest show "Ruby, Roxy and the Flaming Lamborghini" which showcases Chinese and international artists working in canvas, paper, glass, LED and photography on the theme of the color red. In March 2012, George Michellís studio rouge on the Bund presented "Ooh La La!" another solo show which captured the quintessence of modern beauty with works of sensuality and brooding sexuality. Furthermore, spring 2013 marked the beginning of an exclusive six-months cooperation between island6 and studio rouge: island6 garden at studio rouge m50. island6's first solo exhibition in April 2013 was opened parallel to the vernissage of "Body-City-Mechanism".
Later on in 2013, after over 10 years of operation in Shanghai, George Michell made the decision to focus his curatorial efforts solely on his Hong Kong locations, hosting monthly exhibitions that continue to showcase Studio Rouge's fresh and innovative display for the contemporary artists of Hong Kong and China.
