LAB 47 is an art laboratory focussed on research and experimentation.
It is a venue to allow local and visiting artists from around the world express their work in Beijing.
The creation of LAB 47 borne out of the collaboration and intellectual exchanges between Aurélie Martinaud and Geng Han (夕卜) : first, the purpose was to create a new artistic space in Beijing, not only to show the art works, but have also to provide a scene for artistic reflection, expression and discovery. The focus is on promoting new artists, new research in contemporary art thought (aesthetic, historic, poetic); while not confining the boundaries of activity too closely, in order to allow for open and free thought and exchange where new ideas or discoveries can be made .
LAB 47 is in the heart of the Hutong, between Dongsi and Gulou districts. It is surrounded by boutiques stores, restaurants, a primary school, and also a lot of traditional Beijing dwellings. It is in the town centre, so thus in the life centre. The popular neighbourhood surrounding LAB 47 has a rich history and a rich population. Therefore, LAB 47 is immersed completely in the life of the city, in Beijing's quotidian life. This symbiotic relationship with the surroundings is a key source of pride for LAB 47 as giving the opportunity to the local population to discover and become familiar with contemporary art; to interact with curators and artists is something particularly close to the founding principle of LAB 47. A dialogue between the local population and the artistic community will emerge. The concept of social exchange, mixing and interaction that so present and beloved by European urban centres, will be signified and reapplied by our collective. In this way, we hope that this space can contribute to writing a new page of this area's history, where the cultural melting-pot/pick and mix culture, will improve in value and richness.
It is with this vision in mind that LAB 47 will open its doors and be a new place of meeting for the public. A place, a neighbourhood, where people (come from art circle or simply come from the streets around there) can come freely to pursue a dialogue between cultures.
