Very happy to find such a beautifully designed and well-curated gallery in Kunming. Apart from wide-ranging exhibitions (international and domestic, historical and contemporary, photography, architecture, contemporary art) there is a diverse programme of lectures, music performance etc.
A nice day out. I missed the second exhibition. The third exhibition, currently ongoing, is contemporary photos of the Kunming-Haiphong railway, mostly the Chinese side. I thought it was quite good. It's not a huge space, but the 1903 commercial complex has some decent dining options (including the museum cafe itself which has some expensive but very good single origin coffees).
Good exhibition of spooky, thought-provoking paintings on at the moment. Well worth a visit.
