Chengdu, China: A4 x KADIST Video Library Project+
Luxelakes • A4 Art Museum and KADIST are pleased to announce the launch of a partnership that aims to facilitate access to video works by international contemporary artists for research, education, and enjoyment. The program includes a permanent video art viewing space and annual video screening series.
Video Art Viewing Space
The A4 x KADIST Video Library Project’s new viewing space is located in the archive center of the A4 Art Museum. Museum visitors will be able to watch more than 200 video titles by international contemporary artists in full, through the Kadist Video Library (KVL), an online platform designed to facilitate public access to video artworks.
Video Art Screening Series
The annual series of curated screenings and public discussions will create new ways to participate in the discourse of new media art, rethink the meaning of space, materiality, and organization, and close the gap between the audience and new media art. International artists, curators, and scholars will be invited to reflect on the theme of the screening and engage in dialogue with local artists and scholars. More information about the screening series here.
Luxelakes • A4 Art Museum (formerly A4 Contemporary Arts Center) was founded by Chengdu Wide Horizon Investment Co., Ltd. in March 2008. Ms. Sunny Sun has been the director since its establishment. In August 2016, it moved to Luxelakes Arts Exhibition Center and formally registered as a private non-profit art museum. Designed by architect Antoine Predock, the main structure covers an area of 3,500 square meters, including three-floor independent exhibition halls, a lecture hall, a library, a Kids Space and an art store. Next to it are our permanent themed exhibition hall——the Eco Art Center and a grand theater of 650 seats. Meanwhile, the 2,400-square-meter Art Center of A4 Artist in Residence International Exchange Program is also opened to the public in 2019. With more multi-dimensional space, professional academic research as well as diversified exhibitions and public activities, A4 hopes to enhance its interaction and cooperation with communities, schools and cities to build a more public synthesis of art museum.
