Redtory Museum of Contemporary Art (RMCA)

The Redtory Museum of Contemporary Art (RMCA) is a private, non-profit Contemporary Art Museum that initiates and organizes exhibitions of art, architecture, design, film, photography and video from both China and overseas.

It also promotes academic research, organizes artists’ residencies and public programs for schools, universities and adult education, and facilitates exchanges of art, artists and exhibitions internationally.

RMCA is comprised of a group of buildings located at the heart of the Guangzhou Redtory Art and Design Factory District. This former industrial area, situated by the Zhujiang River in the centre of the city, has been repurposed for cultural and leisure use and covers 170,000 square metres with over 100 different structures.

Made up of factories, sheds, offices and warehouses designed by Russian architects at the beginning of the 1950s, the planning, architecture and still extant machinery expresses the industrial idealism of the 20th century. The outer surface of the main museum building (Hall 1) has since been clad in rough corten steel to emphasise its monumentality and historical significance.

The exhibition spaces of RMCA cover a total area of over 4,000 m2 spread across six separate buildings (Halls 1, 2, 3 ,4 ,5 & 6). Halls 1 & 2 are over seven meters high, while the other spaces are more intimate.  These resources give flexibility for planning many different kinds of exhibitions, performances and events.
