SHUNDE.- He Art Museum will open to the public on 1st October 2020, presenting its launch exhibition, From the Mundane World. Designed by Pritzker Prize laureate Tadao Ando, the museum will be home to the family’s art collection. The collection consists of more than 500 works ranging from painting, calligraphy, photography, to sculpture, and mainly falls into three catalogues: International Contemporary Art, Chinese Modern Art and Chinese Contemporary Art.

HE Jianfeng, Founder of HEM, said: ‘My vision for HEM is to bring art and culture to the people of my hometown of Shunde, the Pearl River Delta, China, and international visitors who are curious about our heritage and culture. I hope the museum can contribute to cultural initiatives that the country’s Greater Bay Area Development Plan envisions.’

SHAO Shu, Director of HEM said: ‘We are proud to be rooted in our community and stay connected to the Greater Bay Area. Our visitors will discover world-class artworks and our Cantonese heritage through theme exhibitions and permanent exhibitions. Meanwhile, we will introduce HEM2, a program that is committed to creating various public events to engage with the local residents.’

The launch exhibition From the Mundane World is curated by independent art curator and critic FENG Boyi along with HU Bin, WANG Xiaosong, LIU Gang, SHAO Shu. The exhibition extends the original attributes of "worldly scenery" to production, consumption, ecology, environment, examining the situation of human civilization in the laws of nature. It will be on view on the second to third floor.

In line with public health guidelines, social distancing measures are in place and all visitors must purchase tickets online prior to their visit to the museum.
