Gallery Weekend Beijing announces the exhibitions of participating galleries and institutions

 

“What is a gallery weekend?!” you might ask. The idea of the Gallery Weekend was developed by galleries in Berlin in 2005 and each year the best galleries join forces to invite collectors worldwide to come and see the best exhibitions these galleries have to offer.

Beijing is home to the largest community of artists in China and a major place for artistic production, much of which the world has never seen. The Gallery Weekend Beijing provides a spotlight onto the exciting work by Beijing based artists through the lens of the exhibitions of the participating galleries.

Often when artists create art works in their studios, they have their next gallery exhibition in mind. Sometimes they spend years thinking about how to best present their ideas about art. This is a long process filled with hard work, ambition, intellectual effort and strong emotions. For every artist an exhibition is the moment where all this comes together in a moment that reveals what art can be.

So at the core of the Gallery Weekend is the idea that art can be best experienced in a gallery exhibition. In the more relaxed atmosphere of the gallery space collectors can explore and experience art in more rewarding ways than at art fairs. Art lovers can connect in more meaningful ways, with the energies put forth by the artist in his art works and the gallery provides the environment for in-depth conversations about the artists.

The goal of Gallery Weekend Beijing is to support the gallery system so we can all enjoy art now and in the future. The Gallery Weekend Beijing 2017 edition runs from March 17th-19th and these are the galleries and art institutions that will be participating:
