Whitebox Art Center is located in Beijing 798 art district, on a site that was previously a Bauhaus- influenced factory area which was designed by East Germany in 1952.
Based on the abandoned military factory, Whitebox Arts and Culture Cooperation invested to redesign and develop it into a maximum amount of hanging exhibition space, with the intention of remaining the essence of these original structures. Its multi-functional design aims to fulfill the various needs of contemporary life by offering platforms for exhibitions, creative design, academic exchange, symposiums and educational program. Now, Whitebox Art Center has around 840 sq meters admirable exhibition space, and its chief mission is driving a deeper communication between Chinese Contemporary Arts and international culture, via holding different types of exhibition and activity which relate to CCA. We are dedicated to display innovative artworks, ignite academic minds and organize resources; as well as pay lots of attention on spreading CCA and its’ interaction in the international creative environment, to explore the new trend for the development of the industry of arts.
‘Art makes life different’ is our mandate, which we hope to achieve by being communicative, open and cooperative.
