Today Art Museum
“The Today Art Museum is a private, non-profit museum located in Beijing. The museum’s mission is to support the development of Chinese contemporary art.
The Today Art Museum was founded by Zhang Baoquan in 2002. Alex Gao officially began his service as Executive Director of the Today Art Museum in August, 2013. The museum’s aim is to promote Chinese contemporary art based on an internationalized vision and a contemporary ideology. As the country’s first non-for-profit, non-governmental art museum in China, the Today Art Museum is dedicated to establishing an appropriate development strategy for museums of its kind within a Chinese context.
“Foothold on today, outlook for tomorrow” is the Today Art Museum’s slogan. The museum’s focus is on Chinese contemporary art, its trends and key figures. At the same time, the institution strives to discover and support young artists in the community. Through the construction of a larger institutional framework and by carrying on relevant academic practices, the Today Art Museum hopes to solidify its standing in the history of art and offer a multi-tiered approach to China’s burgeoning art scene. The museum also promotes international dialogue through exhibitions and events that provide structure for meaningful cultural exchange between Chinese and non-Chinese artists and organizations.
The museum is located in central Beijing (CBD).” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Today_Art_Museum)
