Launched in November 2013, OCAT Xi’an is the third site for OCAT Museums, which began with OCAT Shenzhen in 2005. OCAT Xi’an is devoted to contemporary art: its mission is to draw upon local and international resources to promote Chinese contemporary art to an international standard as well as to support a range of cultural exchange programs in Xi’an.
OCAT Xi’an has three floors and is overseen by a small staff of professional curators and art workers. Our annual program of local and international exhibitions opens to everyone, whether to discover contemporary art for the first time, or to learn more about artists shaping the contemporary art scene.
With its exhibition program, OCAT Xi’an becomes part of this community. Our program is guided by a contemporary focus on artistic innovations that extend backwards and forwards in time and, geographically, west to embrace cultures along ancient routes that, like China today, are home to ever evolving forms of new artistic expression. It is said that in ancient Xi’an east met west. OCAT Xi’an aims to continue that convergence through the contemporary practices of artists at the forefront of the era.
