The Cang Art Museum, an art institution that focuses on exploring the incorporation of the fine arts into society, recently opened in Hangzhou, East China's Zhejiang Province, with a maiden exhibition that focuses on the development of international contemporary art.
The Time Capsule - International Contemporary Art Exhibition features 40 works, including paintings, sculptures and multi-media installations, from more than 20 contemporary artists, including renowned Chinese artists such as Xu Bing and Ding Yi and Japanese sculptor Nobuo Sekine. The exhibition will run till Sept 20.
Besides of being a time capsule for such artworks, the museum focuses on other areas such as research, collection and exchanges. It is also seeks to create bonds between art galleries, visitors and local communities.
The founding of the museum is also an attempt to break out of the cul-de-sac situation unseen in cities like Beijing and Shanghai, in Hangzhou, where people's modern art interests are still developing.
