Weekend Where to Go
- Time of issue:2021-09-06 17:32
Art museums are always a safe choice when you have no idea of where to hang out on weekends. Museums are places where you can appreciate something visually stimulating and deepen your understanding of the world. Also, museum buildings are themselves fine examples of the marriage of art and architecture, making them a hot destination for photo taking.
The Red Brick Art Museum, Beijing
Located in the capital city's northeastern portion, the museum promises a getaway from the urban hustle and bustle. Noted architect Dong Yugan designed a unique Chinese garden infused with a contemporary touch, by using red bricks as a fundamental element. It is populated with artworks by internationally renowned artists as well as, cats, ducks and black swans, presenting an atmosphere of serenity, elegance and playfulness.

UCCA Dune, Beidaihe, Hebei
This second exhibition space opened by UCCA Center for Contemporary Art is nestled beneath a sand dune, after which it is named. Dune's opening in 2018 added one more attraction to the seaside Aranya Gold Coast Community, which was already a holiday resort popular for the "Lonely Library" and a church standing on the beach. Facing the Bohai Sea, Dune shows artworks in several interconnected cave-like rooms, and it blends itself into the natural surroundings from outside. Visiting the museum reminds one of the childhood experience of hiding in a secluded refuge.
Have a nice weekend~
