Xⁿ Office由艺术史研究员徐丹和艺术家倪有鱼共同发起当代艺术展览策划小组。在数学语言中,X代表任一数,N代表自然数集,都具有未知和无限的含义;X . N 恰恰是中文“虚拟”的首字母,无论在上海、布鲁塞尔或是柏林,Xⁿ Office并不构筑一个真正意义上的实体办公室,而旨在从美术史学理论的角度和艺术家实践的角度双向出发,试图策划一系列兼具论文研究和实验性的策展活动。

 

Xⁿ Office is an independent curatorial team founded by art history researcher Penny Dan Xu, and artist NI Youyu in 2016. Until 2021,  Xⁿ Office has curated five exhibitions in several cities, including Shanghai, Hong Kong, and Paris; and published two research-based bilingual exhibition publications. In mathematical language, X means a variable can be any number, letter or equation. N refers to any natural numbers. They both link to the notion of "Infinitive variation". N powers of X suggests that the two curators develop ideas from two different perspectives and methods; they collaborate to discover a world of endless possibilities.
