Look Back at Our Six Year
To mark the opening of a new site for OCAT Xi’an, we have selected some especial projects from among the many presented since the founding of OCAT Xi’an in 2013, to offer a retrospective look at our own history. We recreate elements from the biennial exhibition series “About XX”, which took a strong focus on academic research, as well as from our “OCAT Xi’an Showcase” programme which focused on Xi’an-based artists.
