About M WOODS  


M WOODS is an independent, not-for-profit art museum founded in 2014 by collectors Lin Han and Wanwan Lei. Across two museum sites, M WOODS 798, housed in a former munitions factory in Beijing’s 798 Art District, and the newly inaugurated M WOODS Hutong, inside the M WOODS Art Community, located in the city’s historic Dongcheng district, present a year-round programme of exhibitions, performances, music, education, live events and talks that situate contemporary art at the heart of the city and beyond.

In 2020, M WOODS was  formally granted official heritage museum qualifications by The National Bureau of Cultural Heritage in China (博物馆资质), allowing the museum to present and host the most important Chinese cultural artefacts and relics. 2019 M WOODS also opened its restaurant M Woods Tongue, and guī, the museum’s new hybrid space for live and time-based art, that functions both as a gallery space and as a nightclub.

























Locations




In 2015, M WOODS received its official not-for-profit status in China as an acknowledgement of its cultural services to the public. The museum’s emphasis is on presenting new and historical work by Chinese and international artists, often those who have rarely or never had a solo exhibition in a Beijing institution. M WOODS has presented the first institutional solo exhibitions in Beijing by artists such as Yinka Shonibare CBE,  David Hockney, Lu Yang, Richard Tuttle, Nicolas Party, Liang Shaoji, Cristof Yvoré and Paul McCarthy, amongst others, and collaborates with international museums such as Tate Modern, London, to present unique experiences and exhibitions for a local audience.

The M WOODS collection is dedicated to preserving, interpreting, and expanding beyond the traditional narrow definitions of art to encompass diverse cultural positions, with work by artists such as Kader Attia and Danh Võ to Buddhist sculptors from the Northern Qi Dynasty, and from contemporary work by Olafur Eliasson and Yang Fudong, for instance, to that of a “Follower of Hieronymus Bosch”.
Remaining dynamic and experimental, at the core of M WOODS is the idea that art should be ‘Free, Alchemical, and Timeless’ (FAT).

Art Is Still Here: A Hypothetical Show for a Closed Museum 



Here at M WOODS we recognize that the current health emergency in China has affected our communities and has forced many of our museums, institutions and galleries to close, leaving a space in which the arts can comment and reflect.

As a public museum, we ask how we then experience art during times of institutional closure: what are the forms that art and art museums must take when galleries become inaccessible to the public?

In light of this, M WOODS will present ‘Art Is Still Here: A Hypothetical Show for a Closed Museum’, an online exhibition of moments and happenings – contributions of artworks, videos, photographs, words, poems, instructions and thoughts – by artists and thinkers around the theme of ecology, nature, extinction, isolation and kinship, curated by our Artistic Director and Chief Curator Victor Wang.

Conceived as a long-term visual project that will virtually occupy both M WOODS museum locations (798 and Hutong), this experimental exhibition will unfold over a period of several weeks: different galleries of the museum will be open virtually, with accompanying artworks presented online through the museum’s online platforms – Weibo, WeChat, Instagram and Facebook – throughout the duration of the show. 

In the context of Mainland China, social media has now become a very powerful tool in sharing information and connecting communities both locally and internationally during the quarantine period.  With no end date set for this project, the timeframe is contingent on the opening of our museums and public institutions, and therefore artists will continuously be invited to participate.

Through this activity we hope to continue our mission of working with artists to provide art for the public, making it accessible at all times and in all circumstances.

[Opening February 13 – Continuous ]
