Kengo Kuma-designed Zhi Art Museum opens in Chengdu

A new cultural landmark for southwest China, the Zhi Art Museum has debuted in Chengdu with its first exhibition, Open, celebrating the official inauguration of the museum. Curated by Zhang Ga, the exhibition showcases the work of nine international artists that explore the essence of Zhi – the thirst for knowledge – that’s on display until 12 August.

Located about 40kilometres from Chengdu, the museum has been designed by renowned Japanese architect Kengo Kuma.  Employs brick tiles as the building motif to blend modernist austerity with the undulating mountains and rivers of the surrounding area, which are reminiscent of Chinese classic landscape paintings.
