AroundSpace Gallery presents and promotes established and emerging contemporary artists in China. Founded in 2006, AroundSpace has successfully organized nearly 50 solo and group exhibitions on various themes. The artists it represents are full of Chinese literati luminaries who are also aware of their social responsibility; their art inherits traditional Chinese aesthetics, yet also responds to current social reality. The classical tradition of Chinese art is fluid and ever-changing. The art made by each generation could become classical and traditional in the eyes of future artists. Hence every generation of artists is unique and critical, as they serve as a bridge that links the past and the present. They carry the promise of the past and the inspiration of the future.
AroundSpace discovers artists of different generations, examines their works made in various time periods, and collaborates frequently with international art and culture institutions, in order to present a diverse and comprehensive version of Chinese contemporary art to the global art arena. AroundSpace not only presents and collects established artists, but also cultivates and incubates emerging artists. In doing so it has gradually built an articulate aesthetic taste, and a strong and distinguished collection standard.
AroundSpace’s most recent priority is to bring talented Chinese artists and their work to a broader global art market and introduce them in a meaningful cultural context. In March 2017 and 2018, AroundSpace was featured at the third Art on Paper art fair in New York City. As the only Chinese art gallery included from 2017 to 2018 version of this popular art fairs, AroundSpace’s debut received exceptionally warm feedback from New York collectors and art lovers.
