Create Spaces: Explore possibilities of space

Create Spaces: Explore possibilities of space

Luxelakes·A4 Art Museum will officially open through its inaugural exhibition ‘Create Spaces’ on 15th of April, 2017

The exhibition will display 13 pieces/sets of art works with different forms and in different languages created by artists from China, the Netherlands, France, Norway and Australia, etc.

The exhibition, originating from the organizer's imagination of the new Luxelakes ·A4 Art Museum, will explore the internal connection among the poetic space, motion space, sound space, super visual space, extended space and inner experience space. Visitors will have a better understanding of stories behind the exhibits if they immerse themselves into the ambience created by the six spaces.

During the 3-month event, A4 will launch a series of programs including lectures, workshops, forums and film screening.
