Song Art Museum

Gallery Introduction

As a private art museum, Song Art Museum is planned and set up by Mr. Wang Zhongjun, who is the founder and Chairman of Huayi Brothers Media Group. Sitting beside the Wenyu River, Shunyi District, Beijing, Song Art Museum was officially opened to the public on Sept. 27, 2017. The establishment of Song Art Museum can not only present the precious collections of Mr. Wang, who has collected arts for dozens of years, but also provide a new platform and opportunities for art research and creation.

Song Art Museum will push forward the development of Chinese modern art, and participate in the exchanges with International modern arts (projects) by orderly hosting a series of high-quality exhibitions coupled with collection, research, education, publication and public events, thus building a brand-new art complex and a unique cultural landmark in Beijing.

Exhibition Introduction

Louise Bourgeois / The Eternal Thread

23.03.19 - 23.6.19

Louise Bourgeois / The Eternal Thread is the first large-scale museum exhibition in China of work by French-American artist Louise Bourgeois. The exhibition runs from March 23, 2019 to June 23, 2019. The Eternal Thread allows for multiple readings of Bourgeois’s work, which are symbolically linked by the unifying motif of the uncut thread that runs throughout her oeuvre. The show offers a focussed survey of major works from the artist’s entire career, including Personage sculptures from the late 1940s, Cell installations from the 1990s, the fabric works of her final decade, and the monumental spider sculpture Maman. The motif of the uncut thread also references the prominence of fabric and sewing in the last fifteen years of Bourgeois’s life.
