Jack Mur was born in Paris, France, and has since lived in Canada and China. Having graduated from Shanghai Rego International School in 2011, Jack came to island6 as a summer intern to learn the ropes of marketing. Jack's main task as PR Executive has been to expand art center's presence on the internet. He is also a writer and researcher for the Liu Dao art collective. He has participated in the coordination of Red Gate Gallery's "20 Years - Two Generations of Artists" as well as SHContemporary Art Fair 2011. Currently, Jack is developing his curatorial capabilities by organizing island6's October-November exhibition "Far Beyond the Firewall". In his first week at work, he blew everyone away with his dedication so much that he was entrusted to guard the gallery while everyone was away "partying it up" in Singapore. During that time, he managed to avoid sexually harrassing any of the visitors and has since earned his stripes as an island6 veteran. Jack studied Mandarin at Jiao Tong University for a year, after which he left island6 to attend Boston University's School of Management for a degree in Marketing.
Jack was a proud volunteer at island6.
