Ullens Center for Contemporary Art

 Ullens Center for Contemporary Art

UCCA opened to the public on November 5th 2007 in 798 Art District, Dashanzi, Beijing. It is a non-profit, comprehensive art centre, founded by collectors Guy and Myriam Ullens.

China's first private contemporary art center, UCCA shows established and emerging artists and implements a demanding programme of education and research.

An echo chamber of contemporary creation in China

By breaking the mould of how an art centre is perceived and showcasing the latest in China’s contemporary art, design, fashion, music and multimedia, UCCA aims to provide an echo chamber for emerging projects and new protagonists in the contemporary Chinese cultural scene. UCCA acts as a beacon for the arts in Beijing and in China, as well as a point of reference in the international art scene.

An industrial space comes alive

UCCA aims to be a new kind of private institution: a place that is alive, a platform for dialogue between all communities in search of a new, vibrant exciting space to enjoy contemporary creativity.

Making the most of its unique industrial aesthetic, Jean-Michel Wilmotte and Ma Qinyun redefined the 8000 square meter space to create an international exhibition venue.

UCCA’s stylish yet relaxed restaurant is designed to appeal to all visitors, from corporates to creatives and artists. Available for hire as a private dining area or reception space, the restaurant will offer an all-day service of Chinese and Western cuisine. At night it will transform into a lounge, with DJ’s performing. Designed to integrate with the centre’s activity programme, the restaurant will regularly invite special artists to showcase work within the space.

UCCA events

UCCA has a dynamic programme that includes conferences, lectures, special events, artistic performances, and films. UCCA activities will be a magnet for many kinds of audiences, from art fans and academics, to children and families. With its emphasis on education, UCCA also offers a variety of arts courses, from art criticism to beginners’ filmmaking. Programme details are available on the UCCA website, www.ucca.org.cn

Working under an exclusive license, UCCA will publish and sell limited edition prints and artworks created by leading contemporary Chinese and international artists. The aim is to offer high quality artworks that are both affordable and represent a good investment. Revenue generated from the sale of these limited edition pieces will be used to support UCCA’s arts and educational programmes.
