Guests such as artist Ye Funa, key player of Beijing’s underground electronic music scene Microhate, image-dedicated artist Liu Zhangbolong will carry out an array of programs including talks, workshops and performances as a response to the triennial title “How Do We Begin”. The triennial-themed public programs will serve as a constantly-running project at X Museum，through which the public can look back upon the creative journey of the cultural realm, and vision the transition of art under the background of technical development.
此外，X美术馆也将为新兴艺术家提供平台，推出以优秀青年艺术家为主导的公共项目计划“ROOM X”。“ROOM X”象征着一个贯通艺术家、公众及美术馆的民主空间，鼓励具有创新意识、跨越领域的艺术实践。“ROOM X”探索新一代人的艺术生态，关注鲜被察觉的新兴文化和未被代表的创作者，邀请在各自领域出众的年轻艺术家，为公众带来别具特色的文化体验。在X美术馆开馆之际，独立诗人红杏、艺术家小组外出午餐、行为艺术家陈孟涵等将参与到“ROOM X”中来；他们将以X美术馆展览为启发，展开并呈现各自精彩的创作叙事。
Besides, X Museum will also present an emerging-artist-led public program project titled“ROOM X”as a support to outstanding new artists. “ROOM X” refers to a democratic space that connects artists, public and the museum, encouraging artistic practices that are innovative and field-crossing. “ROOM X” explores the artistic ecology of the new generation with a focus on the undiscovered culture and under-represented voices. The programs will invite new artists to bring out unique cultural experiences to the public.
