Audrey Ou, TRLab co-founder and CEO.
Prior to TR Lab, Audrey was an Entrepreneur in Residence at Olive Capital focusing on consumer technology. Before that, she worked at Oscar Health, first in the strategic finance department, and then as a product marketing manager. Outside of work, Audrey has been involved with the Guggenheim museum (the Asia Art Committee and the Young Collectors Committee). Her interest in contemporary art derives from her engagement with Rockbund Art Museum, founded by her family, since its formation in 2010. Audrey has a B.A. in History from Princeton University and a M.S. in Applied Analytics from Columbia University (2020 - 2021).
Our partners include:
​Inaugurated in 2010, Rockbund Art Museum is a contemporary art museum located on the Bund in Shanghai. The museum is housed in a heritage Art Deco building that originally was one of the first modern museums to be established in China. In 2019, Rockbund Art Museum has become an officially registered non-profit arts organization in Shanghai.
Distinguishing itself from the entrenched conditions of continental or nationality based organizations, Rockbund Art Museum is developing an oceanic vision of contemporary art. They aim to explore the importance of seas and archipelagos across Asia in order to unfold richer perspectives into today’s challenges, practices and networks within the art world. They wish to build constructive paradoxes within multiple localities in Asia and different cultures globally, opening spaces to enable free expression for artists, researchers and curators, and to dive into subtle and dense layers of new experiences with our audience.
With a strong reputation for our innovative curatorial approach, they look to conceive different art projects from research to alternative learning programs, from exhibition-making to unexpected para-performative formats. By supporting bold contemporary art practices, they aim to continually remake local histories, whilst also responding to global art challenges and social mutations.
Managed by experienced VCs from the U.S. and Asia, Dragonfly Capital Partners brings together the leading participants in the decentralized economy. Their global ecosystem enables them to invest in and support the most promising opportunities in the cryptoasset class.
