Taikang Space

Taikang Space (previously known as “Taikang Top Space”) was established by Taikang Life Insurance Co. Ltd in 2003. It belongs to Taikang Life Insurance’s Department of Public Welfare Establishments. Meanwhile, it is also a professional institution devoting itself to Chinese contemporary art collection and the research on its development.

Aiming at establishing an art collection system with a historical meaning for Taikang Life Insurance, Taikang Space currently focuses on two clues in art history: art from 1942 to 1976 and art from 1976 until now. It carries out academic researches in coordination with the art collection and announces its fruits through nonscheduled exhibitions and activities as well.

Taikang Space respects the rules of art development; meanwhile, it attaches importance to the research on “human beings” (i.e. the artists). Through the choice of artists and the research on them, it shows its attention on art development. During the ten years since its establishment, Taikang Space has gradually formed its own conception-“retrospection and encouragement”: retrospecting the past and re-examining the art history, meanwhile, paying attention to the future and exploring the future direction of art development. Taikang Space’s exhibitions and activities are based on these two directions. They are aimed at mature artists’ projects as well as young artists’ experimental projects.

A series of academic activities carried out along with the exhibitions and projects have active and effective supplementary functions for enriching Taikang’s collection and the research on it. At present there are already some iconic pieces and some important works of representative artists in this collection. As for the continuous research on this collection, we cooperate with some important academic institutes in China, further unearth the academic value of the collection, and explore its deep support of value. We are top performers in domestic collection circle, which is still in its primary stage.

Up until now, there are more than two hundred artists who have participated in our exhibitions and activities. Our rigorous academic attitude and down-to-earth style have gained wide recognition in the circle. Taikang Space respects academy, emphasizes academy and hopes that, on top of the art collection career of Taikang Life Insurance, it will leave some valuable judgments and fruits for public use and lay a foundation for the future establishment and development of Taikang Museum with academic attitude and standards.
