OCAT Contemporary Art Terminal (OCAT)

OCAT was established in 2005 as a community division of the He Xiangning Art Museum. It touts itself as “China’s only non-profit contemporary art organization affiliated to a National Art Museum.” This creative hub on Suzhou Creek brings together artists from China and around the world to cultivate media art, mostly video, photography, and sound. OCAT’s mission is to promote exchange between China and the rest of the world through not only art exhibitions, but also via public lectures and screenings.
