Xin Dong Cheng Space for Contemporary Art was founded in the year 2000 in Beijing, China. Xin Dong Cheng's aim is to establish a cultural bridge between China and the rest of the world. By exhibiting Chinese and western artists in China, Xin Dong Cheng gives the Chinese public an opportunity – after half a century of interruption – to broaden their knowledge of modern and contemporary art from the west.
By holding exhibitions of Chinese and western artists at his galleries in China and abroad, Xin Dong Cheng also leads the western public towards a fresh discovery and appreciation of Chinese contemporary art, already widely appreciated in international art circles. In the past three years he has opened two new gallery spaces in Beijing (XDC Space II and XDC Space III) and also expanded his first gallery to 700 square meters, making it one of the largest and most important galleries in the Chinese capital.
