Postponement Announcement: Rockbund Art Museum Re-Opening
Jul 21, 2021
We wish to announce that the re-opening date of the museum has now been delayed until October this year. With RAM’s long-standing commitment to enhancing the highest quality museum experience for our audience, the new date will enable the institution to achieve an ambitious renovation that will serve to safeguard and support the long-term needs of our community. We are excited to re-open the doors of the museum on 16 October, with Again, Just Again, a solo exhibition by the renowned artist John Armleder, the exhibition will last till January, 2022.
Meanwhile, the museum is dedicated to working fully towards the preparation of welcoming audiences, patrons, and the local and international art community who have supported our museum through throughout the years to a new period of its history. We look forward to refining, developing and extended the possibilities of the museum’s architecture to house new experiences, including a newly interior concept based on concepts of sustainability that will invite visitors to relax, enjoy, and explore new panoramas and areas of the building such as a newly opened café and roof-top terrace garden.
We would also like to apologize for the inconvenience caused by this delay. For members of the audience who have already purchased tickets for the exhibition on third-party platforms, you can visit the exhibition directly with this original ticket upon the re-opening of the new date without needing to replace the ticket. If you require a refund, please contact the platform you purchased the ticket from directly. We look forward to receiving you again at the newly-renovated Rockbund Art Museum!
Related to our upcoming projects, Adel Abdessemed solo exhibition “The Perfume of Disease” and the solo exhibition by Trinh T. Minh-ha, “Going into the Dark” will also be postponed, please stay tune to us. Besides, RAM will initiate a series of research projects during the second half of the year. Khek Dhang Ke is a long-term platform with a focus on the vicissitudes of the communities and locals in the local Bund area, which will present an exhibition “Centennial History of the Bund at Khek Dhang Ke”. For the 2021 iteration of CPA (Curatorial Practices in Asia), the museum will invite and collaborate with Dubai based artist and curator Lantian Xie to develop a multi-platform ecosystem, which deploys the form of writing, playlist, podcast, and site-specific performance. RAM Conversation (Season One) will also launch by the end of the year. This project invites past and future RAM HIGHLIGHT artists in conversation with RAM to document their thoughtful reflections on making performative practices.
See you soon!
