  • It's a 1.2km (20min) from exit B2 of the Shuanjing metro station on line 10. The museum is small and can be viewed within an 1 hour. Personally, modern art doesn't resonate with me. You'll find blobs on paper, everyday gadgets encased in resin, computer graphic renderings here. There is ample space and none of the art pieces are crowded together. Access the museum at building No. 2
  • It's a must follow museum... many foreign Chinese artists have their exhibition there.
  • both local and international art community where most renowned artists come and share their creating experience
  • I'm working here.
  • 艺术区,露天雕塑很多。不过还是显得小巧了些。主要还是过来吃吃吃。
