Wind H Art Center is located in the iconic 798 Art District in Beijing and was designed by renown architect Dong Yu Gan. Its construction was finished in November 2019 and presents a total surface of 900 m2, of which 500 m2 are dedicated to exhibitions.
Its mission is to promote contemporary art to the general public through academic art exhibitions showcasing renown and emergent contemporary artists from China and abroad. Central to its mission is the encouragement of an ever-deeper understanding and enjoyment of contemporary art by the diverse local and national audiences that it wishes to attract.
Wind H’s exhibition program has the ambition to foster a stronger community and empower its visitors, to experience and learn and thus engender new thoughts, deepen the emotional intelligence and creative thinking. Wind H has as its main objective to give the necessary tools to develop a comprehensive understanding of contemporary art, following its key notions of inclusion and participation in exhibiting an art that relates to all of us, thus bridging the gap between art and people.
From Screen to Mind - A 50 Year History
Wind H Art Center inaugurates its new existence with the exhibition "From Screen to Mind – A 50 Year History”, showcasing - for the first time in China - the origins of online screen-based art. It traces the sources of online screen-based art, from Joseph Beuys to Lawrence Weiner, through the work of 30 avant-garde artists. Today in the new post-corona era everyone lives with the screen as a body extension. Which gives the exhibition a function as a rearview mirror of history from which we can learn about our future. While providing a unique possibility to explore, understand and discuss how contemporary art in an online environment can function.
