guī is the museum’s new hybrid space for live and time-based art, music, dance, and new media that functions both as a gallery space and as a nightclub. .
Located underneath the M WOODS Hutong
museum, the space will be integrated into the museum’s programming, whilst also
functioning in the evenings as a nightclub to engage with the different times
and spaces where late-night culture occurs. Establishing M WOODS as the first
museum to open its own nightclub and live arts space.
Expanding the boundaries of the traditional
spaces used by museums to activate and engage with contemporary culture, with
guī M WOODS proposes that dance, music and club culture are integral to contemporary
art, and performance art and experimental sound.
M WOODS will collaborate with both
visual arts institutions and music and nightclub venues internationally to
bring unique experiences to our audiences in Beijing.
“guī is our way of offering a unique
space where artists can further engage with and blur the definitions of live
art and club culture” says M WOODS Artistic Director and Chief Curator, Victor
