Established in 2005, Platform China is a multifunction art gallery with two gallery/project spaces and five international residency studios (totaling 1,500 square meters). Its main aim is to develop and promote contemporary art in China, and to build up a platform of cultural exchange and dialogue between Chinese and international artists.
Platform China is more than just a gallery. Our starting point not only lies in the use of our spaces and the diversity of our programs (from visual art and film to music, new media, and all the other cutting-edge art forms), but also in the events and exhibitions we produce. Our goal is to create an open artistic environment in which contemporary art in all its different identities can be created, shown, and discussed. We discover, support, and promote excellent young Chinese artists, and promote the recognition of international artists in China. Platform China also promotes contemporary art through publishing, curating, and managing art projects nationally and internationally.
