ChART Contemporary

ChART Contemporary is a Beijing based curatorial lab dedicated to Bringing together art & people. Our overarching goal is to establish cultural bridges between the East and the West through programs and activities that promote contemporary art and culture. We actively maintain an extensive network of artists, architects, designers, collectors, galleries, museums and academics. We are cultural producers fulfilling a global need by creating an open platform for artistic expression through research, education and curatorial integrity.

Art is Our Life & Art is What We Do
We are native New Yorkers with over a decade of experience working between China, Hong Kong and the United States. On the ground and plugged into China’s booming contemporary art scene, we organize activities and offer services that educate, stimulate and cultivate a passion and deeper understanding of contemporary art.

Megan Connolly – Director
I graduated from Smith College with a degree in East Asian Studies and a concentration in contemporary art from China. I caught the ‘China bug’ as a foreign exchange student of Mandarin during the 1990s and have been traveling between the United States and Mainland China for over a decade. Prior to teaming up with my sister to establish ChART Contemporary, I managed a New York gallery specializing in contemporary Chinese art for three years. Since 2003, I have worked as a curator, writer, event consultant, and art advisor. I worked in Hong Kong and New York as a Consultant for Sotheby’s in the Contemporary Chinese Art Department and for the Asia Art Archive in Beijing as the China Researcher.

KC Vienna Connolly – Director
I am a trained Sculptor with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Kansas and a strong background in American and European Art History. I caught the ‘China bug’ in 2004 when Megan lured me over to immerse myself in Beijing’s art scene. I am a practicing artist who exhibits internationally and develops art education programs for youth and incentive groups. In addition to spearheading ChART Contemporary’s Education initiatives, I acted as the Head of the Art Department at a prestigious International High School in Beijing from 2006- 2011.
