With enthusiasm for art collection, the family continues to purchase artworks and gradually establish a collection system that meets the museum’s standard. Based on local insight, we are constantly trying to use an international perspective to review and broaden the map of our collection. After years of exploration, a certain number of artworks is finally accumulated.
He Art Museum is located in Shunde, Guangdong, where there is a strong industry but the art ecology is relatively barren. The culture in Lingnan area has its traditional side, and this inherent continuity means that protection and restraint coexist. He Art Museum hopes to take advantage of its location in the core area of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area to establish a hub of communication between the local and the world, break through the traditional barriers, provide audiences with more diverse choices and imagination, and better integrate art into local communities.
In October 2014, He Art Museum held a groundbreaking ceremony; in September 2015, He Art Museum signed an agreement with architect Tadao Ando and started the construction in December of the same year; after five years of preparations, He Art Museum will officially open in 2020 and welcome its first exhibition.
