2016 Yinchuan Biennale
The Museum of Contemporary Art Yinchuan, China
The Museum of Contemporary Art Yinchuan, located within a large organic plantation, is the first contemporary art museum in northwest China. Striving to promote diversify in the development of contemporary art, MOCA Yinchuan is the first to be dedicated to Chinese and Islamic contemporary art.
The Museum of Contemporary Art Yinchuan, encompassing 15,000 square meters, is situated along the western banks of the Yellow River and surrounded by natural wetlands. Throughout its long history, this important stop on the Silk Road has always served as a cultural crossroad. Here, East meets West, and a diverse array of cultural influences, from Islam to Xixia, Hetao to Dangxiang, have continually fused together to create a uniquely open and diverse melting pot.
