About LUXELAKES·A4 Art Museum
LUXELAKES·A4 Art Museum (formerly A4 Contemporary Arts Center) was founded by Chengdu Wide Horizon Investment Group Co., Ltd. in March of 2008. In 2016, it relocated to an art center in Chengdu’s LUXELAKES ECO-CITY and was formally registered as a privately operated non-profit art museum. The museum was designed by American architect Antoine Predock and interior design firm DesignARC. Directed by Sunny Sun, A4 focuses on the development of dynamic domestic and international art. It is devoted to promoting the academic study and onsite experimentation of new media art in China, both by expanding the scope of international cultural exchange and by focusing on local artistic practices. Through its diverse public education projects and cultural events, LUXELAKES·A4 Art Museum strengthens its connections with the local community and the city at large. LUXELAKES·A4 Art Museum has developed a range of annual projects, including a themed international contemporary art exhibition, a series of artist case studies, an international artist residency program, and the Young Artist Experimental Season. In addition, the museum organizes public education projects such as lectures, discussions, experimental performances and workshops. In order to provide a diverse range of services to visitors, the museum includes a children’s education center, a public library, a lecture hall, a multimedia presentation center, artist residency studios, a museum store, and a cafe. Through sustained cooperation with domestic and international artists, and by designing academic and educational opportunities, the museum has built a leading contemporary art platform in China.
