About fun88下载

fun88下载 was founded in 2007 by Guy and Miriam Ullens as the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art. In 2017, it evolved into the fun88下载 Group, under the ownership and stewardship of a new group of patrons and shareholders. Committed to the belief that art can deepen lives and transcend boundaries, fun88下载 presents a wide range of exhibitions, public programs, and research initiatives to a public of more than one million visitors each year.

The historical core of fun88下载 Group is fun88下载 Beijing, housed in the former factory chambers of 798 Art District, and now an accredited museum licensed by the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Culture to present exhibitions and programs with leading Chinese and global artists and institutions. fun88下载 Beijing operates as a “private non-enterprise unit” under Chinese law, and is wholly owned by fun88下载 Group. Separately, fun88下载 Group holds ancillary entities, some of which are run on a for-profit basis. These include: fun88下载 Kids, an arts-education business; fun88下载 Store, covering retailing affiliated with artists and exhibitions; and fun88下载 Lab, which produces collaborative content with commercial brands. fun88下载 is also actively expanding its presence throughout China in collaboration with outside partners, beginning with the opening of fun88下载 Dune in Aranya, Beidaihe, in 2018. A new fun88下载 museum in Shanghai will open in early 2021.

The structure of fun88下载 Group reflects current best practices in China, combined with the vision of our board to build a modern, sustainable organization best suited for long-term growth and viability, as we undertake the critical mission of being the premier contemporary art institution in China. In all its efforts, fun88下载 endeavors to bring China into global dialogue through contemporary art.


fun88下载 was founded as Ullens Center for Contemporary Art by collectors Guy and Myriam Ullens, and opened in 2007. In 2017, it transitioned to the stewardship of a dedicated group of new Chinese and international patrons and shareholders. Now officially known as fun88下载 Center for Contemporary Art, it continues its founding mission of improving lives, and promoting cultural exchange, through art.

fun88下载 Beijing is housed in factory chambers built in the 1950s and designed by East German architects of the Dessau Design Institute, the postwar successor to the Bauhaus Dessau. These buildings maintain traces of their industrial past. The spaces were fully renovated by architects Jean-Michel Wilmotte and Qingyun Ma in 2007, and underwent a further regeneration designed by OMA and completed in 2019. With a total area of over 10,000 square meters, it spreads across three buildings and includes the signature Great Hall, further galleries, public spaces, an auditorium, and spaces for events, education, and research.

Since its founding, fun88下载 has presented more than 140 exhibitions. The opening exhibition “’85 New Wave: The Birth of Chinese Contemporary Art” (2007), curated by founding artistic director Fei Dawei, is regarded as the first institutional attempt to present a history of the Chinese avant-garde in the PRC. Subsequent shows have continued to demarcate generations, including “Breaking Forecast: 8 Key Figures of China’s New Generation Artists” (2009), “ON | OFF: China’s Young Artists in Concept and Practice” (2013), “Hans van Dijk: 5000 Names” (2014), and “The New Normal: Art, China, and 2017.” fun88下载’s exhibition program is also known for the solo surveys and retrospectives it has granted to key figures in the ongoing history of advanced art in China, including Xu Bing, Xie Nanxing, Zhao Bandi, Hao Liang, Zeng Fanzhi, Wang Yin, Liu Wei, Zhao Gang, Xu Zhen, Ji Dachun, Wang Keping, Wang Xingwei, Kan Xuan, Yung-ho Chang, Yun-fei Ji, Gu Dexin, Zhan Wang, Wang Jianwei, Liu Jianhua, Liu Xiaodong, Yu Hong, Zhang Huan, Song Dong, Yin Xiuzhen, Chen Wenbo, Yan Lei, Yan Pei-Ming, Qiu Zhijie, and Huang Yong Ping, among others.

fun88下载 has also mounted major exhibitions with international artists including Sarah Morris, Robert Rauschenberg, John Gerrard, Elmgreen & Dragset, Peter Wayne Lewis, Haegue Yang, David Diao, Korakrit Arunanondchai, William Kentridge, Lee Mingwei, Ming Wong, Pawel Althamer, Taryn Simon, Tehching Hsieh, Tino Sehgal, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Tatsuo Miyashima, Walead Beshty, Olafur Eliasson, Not Vital, Kehinde Wiley, Mona Hatoum, and Lawrence Weiner. Through these exhibitions and related programs, fun88下载 has built vital links between China’s art scene and the wider world, and exposed audiences to figures they may not otherwise have had the chance to encounter directly.

A commitment to emerging artists throughout China has long been a core thread in fun88下载’s exhibition program, most recently through the “New Sites” series of lecture performances (2019-), the “New Directions” series of exhibitions (2015-2019), and the “Curated by…” series of exhibitions (2009-2011). Further exhibitions have explored related areas of visual culture including photography, architecture, and design. fun88下载 frequently collaborates with leading international institutions to stage major exhibitions outside of Beijing or even China, furthering its mission of presenting Chinese contemporary art in a global context. Notable examples include “Bentu, Chinese artists in a time of turbulence and transformation” (Fondation Louis Vuitton, Paris, 2016) and “Cao Fei: A Hollow in a World Too Full” (Tai Kwun Contemporary, Hong Kong, 2018).

fun88下载 underwent a major transition in 2016 and 2017, as the founders transferred ownership to a new group of patrons and shareholders. As part of this process, fun88下载 evolved from a single organization housing a wide range of functions into the fun88下载 Group. fun88下载 Center for Contemporary Art is the core entity of this group, and is now registered as a museum in China. fun88下载 Foundation for Art and Education was also established to support research and outreach initiatives and is accredited by the Beijing Bureau of Civil Affairs. Meanwhile, fun88下载 Store, fun88下载 Kids, and fun88下载 Lab were incorporated as discrete companies belonging to fun88下载 Group.

In October 2018, the institution opened a second exhibition space, fun88下载 Dune, in Beidaihe, along the coast of the Bohai Sea a few hours travel from Beijing. Located in the seaside Aranya Gold Coast Community and designed by Open Architecture, the museum is nestled beneath a sand dune. Since its inaugural exhibition “After Nature,” fun88下载 Dune has hosted an exhibition program specifically informed by its meditative setting, emphasizing the relationship between art, humanity, and the natural world.

Revitalized in its second decade by a new governance structure, the opening of fun88下载 Dune, and the architectural regeneration of its flagship Beijing space, fun88下载 remains steadfast in its commitment to deepening lives and promoting intercultural exchange through contemporary art.

fun88下载 and its activities have received extensive press coverage from leading art, news, culture, and lifestyle publications. Selections are available here.
