Introduction to the Museum

    From ancient to modern times, in the history of human civilization, there is never such art like ceramics accompanying the whole process of human social activities and historical evolution. It has made a great contribution to the development of human historical civilization. Ceramics carries the unique culture of human art development, transcending time and space, beyond national borders. It is the perfect combination of heaven & people and man & nature. In history, ceramics has made a great contribution to Chinese material and spiritual civilization. In particular, porcelain is unique in China, and has been spread and promoted by the maritime and land "Silk Road", and finally becomes the symbol of Chinese culture, which is understood by the world as the national emblem--China.

    How to carry forward and promote this great art is the common historical responsibility of modern people. Beijing Yuanyang Culture Investment Co., Ltd. , attached to Beijing Yuanyang Investment Group, has invested to establish Guozhong Ceramic Art Museum, aiming to promote ceramic culture and the prosperous and sound development of ceramic art. As the first exhibition hall of ceramic art in the capital, Guozhong Ceramic Art Museum is committed to becoming a platform for academic research, discussion and cultural exchange of top-ranking ceramic art  experts and scholars at home and abroad. It is built to be the world's top art and ceramics exhibition venue. At the same time, through the organization of a series of exhibition and exchange activities, it will eventually become the palace of art for international ceramic academic exchanges and artworks display.

    Guozhong Ceramic Art Museum is located in the center area of Beijing city. It is in Pingan Mansion at Pingan Avenue which is called “the Second Changan Street”. The Pingan Mansion is adorned with beautiful antique ornaments. It has a long and rich history. The museum covers 1000 m2. The front part is the exhibition section and the back hall is the interactive area with multi-function. Well designed by the top level designers group from domestic and abroad, it combines with Chinese elements and international concepts, not only classic but also contemporary. It is sufficient for the exhibition and exchange of top-level ceramic art at home and abroad. The museum has a top management service team and employs many world-famous masters in the ceramic and culture field as advisers. The executive team consists of professional personnel who have been working for the first-rate international ceramic exhibitions for many times. Meanwhile, the museum cooperates deeply with more than 20 mainstream media at home and abroad for long term to ensure the best spread for ceramic art works and academic exchanges. The museum also cooperates with many first-rate ceramic art museums to ensure the authoritative and sufficient cooperation and exchange for ceramic artworks.

    Beijing Guozhong Ceramic Art Museum is a group member of International Academy of Ceramics (IAC) and a cooperative unit of the international ceramic art exchange activities organized by IAC. It is the standing director unit of China Ceramic Industry Association and the base for China Ceramic Industry Association to carry out national ceramic art exchange activities in Beijing.

    We believe that through our unremitting pursuit and exploration, Guozhong Ceramic Art Museum will become a palace of ceramic art that attracts the attention of the world and continuously promote ceramic art to new glory.

Speech by Curator

    Ceramics have made great contributions to the history and contemporary of human society, and the history of ceramic culture has been brilliant. How to inherit and develop this great culture and art well tests the wisdom of our contemporary art and ceramics personnel. As the former President and current President Emeritus of IAC, I am deeply responsible.

    Founded in 2012, Guozhong Ceramic Art Museum is located in a palace in the center of Beijing, the capital of China. Over the past eight years, under the leadership of Mr. Zhang Shouzhi, a famous ceramic professor in China and the first curator of Guozhong Ceramic Art Museum, it has been working hard to promote Chinese ceramics and international ceramic art works and academic exchanges with the idea of ceramic public welfare undertakings. It has been highly recognized by China and the world ceramic art circles, achieved extraordinary achievements and won honors.

    Since the first IAC member literature exhibition was undertaken by China National Ceramic Art Museum in 2015, IAC and Guozhong Ceramic Art Museum have started many times of cooperation and exchange, and became the group member of IAC in 2018. For a period of time, IAC leaders have had many exchanges and understanding with President Zheng of Yuanyang investment group, the organizer of Guozhong National Ceramic Art Museum. They have learned that Guozhong Ceramic Art Museum is striving to build it into a global international ceramic art museum with public welfare action, promote international exchange and cooperation of more ceramic artists, and do better for global ceramic art more contributions. This development concept is in line with IAC's development spirit. After research, IAC signed an agreement with Guozhong Ceramic Art Museum in 2019 and established a long-term strategic partnership with the aim of providing better services to more IAC members and ceramic artists in the world.

    Today, I was appointed the second curator of Guozhong Ceramic Art Museum. I am deeply honored. Under the principle of cooperation between IAC and Guozhong Ceramic Art Museum, I will cooperate with the existing team of Guozhong Ceramic Art Museum and with more international ceramic experts, scholars and institutions to make the development of Guozhong ceramic art museum better. Make greater contribution to the world ceramic art circle!
