On the occasion of the first anniversary of the Aurora Museum, the exhibition “The Making of A Museum” presents seven internationally renowned contemporary artists who engage and interfere with the Museum’s space and collection.
Their works displayed together with Aurora Museum’s precious collection of ancient Chinese artifacts result into an exhibition that modulates, transforms and connects the collection together with the architectural space, opening the Museum to unexpected visual interferences, meanings and poetic parallels which reveal through the contemporary artists’ eyes the exceptional richness of China past. This exhibition is in partnership with the 10th Shanghai Biennale.
