Beijing Art Now Gallery

Beijing Art Now Gallery

Beijing Art Now Gallery was founded in 2004, located inside the Beijing Workers Stadium. The exhibition space was created to accommodate the gallery's specific purposes and needs, covering an area of 230 square meters, including an exhibiting line of 61 meters, with plenty of natural lighting. There are also two storage areas of 200 and 330 square meters respectively.

Beijing Art Now Gallery is a major international institute specifically running contemporary arts in China. Its programs mainly focus on two aspects: the retrospective waves that tracing social context reference in the past so as to explore the evolvement of Chinese art in new ages; the experimental avant-garde art that represented by the new generation, of both established and emerging artists in their national and global environments.

In 2007, in order to provide a further creative space to present more experimental and international exhibitions, Beijing Art Now Galley opened a second site at Moganshan Road, in Shanghai. This exhibition space over two floors covers 500 square meters, including a 170 meter exhibition line, video room and database. In 2008 the gallery started its third space, with the size of over 800 square meters located in Cao Changdi.

After the controversial Post 9/11–Yang Shaobin's Solo Exhibition which sent shockwaves through the Chinese cultural scene in 2004, Beijing Art Now Gallery has continually held many internationally influential solo and group exhibitions. In April 2006, the gallery with Galerie Laurent Godin held Wang Du's Solo exhibition; in June 2007, it cooperated with Arndt & Partner Gallery to mount Zhang Fazhi's solo Exhibition in Zurich. In July 2007, the double solo exhibition of Li Bo and Lei Benben enjoyed wide attention globally including the newsletter by Artnet in New York.
