Magician Space was established in Beijing, China, in 2008.
In Chinese, mojinshi is a homonym to “magician”. Referring to the gesture of sharpening and strengthening, it also carries the connotations of reflection and examination. Meanwhile, magician, in English, is an entity that works with enchantment and unpredictability, and therefore evokes new possibilities.
Since its establishment, Magician Space has been a reflective participant in the contemporary art community. Focusing on artists’ individual practices, Magician Space seeks to provide artists with an experimental and open platform. Through in-depth research, it documents and studies contemporary artists’ works.
Magician Space strives to break down the existing boundaries of the art world. By creating an open space with fluid possibilities and a unique attitude, Magician Space offers the public a different experience of viewing, understanding, and participating in contemporary art.
