Magician Space is mainly devoted to address and summarize blank spots in the current development of Chinese contemporary art. Its annual exhibition projects invite artists with serious attitude and experimental spirits to participate and propose projects that aim to provoke viewers’ thinking - vertically on current contemporary ideology and horizontally on the expanding existing models of thinking and visual habits.
Exhibition: Four exhibitions annually, 8 weeks in duration
