Rockbund Art Museum
The Rockbund Art Museum is a contemporary art museum which plays one of the finest roles in the creative art scene worldwide. Since its opening in 2010, Rockbund Art Museum has achieved high renown for its exhibitions of acclaimed Chinese and international artists.
The Rockbund Art Museum is the first contemporary art museum in China that is fully devoted to supporting contemporary art production and creativity. The deep involvement of the Rockbund Art Museum aims to elevate contemporary art and energize the Chinese and international art scenes. This involves exhibiting artworks which represent the most relevant and exciting challenges for contemporary arts, such as: Cai Guo Qiang, Peasant Da Vincis (2010), Paola Pivi, Share, but it’s not fair (2012); contributing to the production of unseen and on-site artworks, such as Michael Lin’s Model Home (2012); and inviting curators to revisit the practice of exhibitions, such as Hou Hanru’s curation of By Day by Night; collaborating with acclaimed international institutions to explore the forefront issues in contemporary art, such as the exhibition From Gesture to Language (2013) co-curated with Pascal Torres Guardiola, Curator of Chalcography at the Louvre and of the Edmond de Rothschild Collection; and inventing the strong platform to support the artistic explorations of emerging artists from across Asia, the on-going project of award, exhibition, research and education of HUGU BOSS ASIA ART (from 2013).
The Rockbund Art Museum is where artists and curators can develop art projects that require specific and often strong needs. It embraces various creative practices to bridge various disciplines such as design, architecture, dance, and to promote powerful established artists as well as emerging art projects.
The Rockbund Art Museum strives to spread humanistic values and to promote art by offering all audiences the best conditions in encountering artworks, and by being dedicated to the research, exchange and promotion of contemporary art. The recently launched research and education platforms open the museum up for collaboration with universities, foundations and colleges, and for the co-organization of a wide range of activities in the form of lectures, seminars, screenings, performances, workshops and educational programs.
The Rockbund Art Museum envisions itself as an open and vibrant museum that strives to provide support to contemporary artists and curators, to confront daring challenges for a creative contemporary art scene, and to generate lively programs of exhibitions and cultural events. In this way it becomes one important part of the cultural production and education mechanism of contemporary society.
