On October 13, it was announced that Singaporean curator Khairuddin Hori will be joining Palais de Tokyo, Paris—one of Europe’s foremost centers of contemporary art—as its deputy programming director. Hori, who is currently serving as senior curator of the National Heritage Board’s curatorial development department in Singapore, will assume his new position next month.

A graduate of Singapore’s Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, 40-year-old Hori is best known for his multidisciplinary and unconventional approach to curating, supported by his experience in theatre and as a fine artist. In 1997 he took on the position of associate director at Teater Ekamatra, a Malay-language theatre company, for which he led large-scale outdoor performances in Singapore. He was also an active participant of Thailand’s Asiatopia International Performance Art Festival from 2005–08.
