Redefining The Black & White Box Model.
At ChART Contemporary we encourage collaboration and creativity.
ChART Contemporary is invited to participate in Beijing Design Week for the second year. In 2011, ChART Contemporary created ChART Home, an extension of ChART’s ongoing Open House curatorial series. This year, ChART teams up with Open House Living, a lifestyle brand dedicated to bringing together art & design. Focusing on a made in China made for China model, stay tuned for project details. More

Open House: A Room of One’s Own, created from tailor made clothing, all based on the artist’s measurements and household objects with embroidery. A video archive documenting the intervention on March 28 and a series of drawings-precursors to the creation process-accompany this installation. More
Open House is a series of field experiments that present new work by emerging artists for one afternoon in a space that is for rent, sale or abandoned. There is no equivalent of the American concept Open House in Chinese, but the term Yangbanjian (样板间) conveys a similar feeling where real estate is on display for public consumption. Open House is designed to give people an opportunity to interact with contemporary art beyond the black and white walls in a gallery or museum. ChART Contemporary organized its first Open House on April 19, 2009. More
