Yuz Museum Shanghai is celebrating the opening of its new location at the Shanghai Panlong Tiandi with an exhibition titled "A Journey: A Yuz foundation collection".

The exhibition started on May 18 and will run till Aug 18.

Founded by the late Budi Tek, a Chinese-Indonesian entrepreneur, philanthropist and collector, in 2014, Yuz Museum Shanghai is a contemporary museum dedicated to art education and promoting dialogues between the East and West.

Yuz Museum Shanghai was located on the banks of the Huangpu River for nine years before moving to the Shanghai Panlong Tiandi in May. The inaugural exhibition at the new venue presents more than 40 artworks, including paintings, sculptures, installations, photographs and videos, that were selected from the 1,500 contemporary artworks collected by the Yuz Foundation over the past 50 years.

Curated by Shi Wen, the exhibition is centered around the idea of "home", which transcends the location of a specific house or dwelling and represents kinship, community, and a sense of belonging.

According to Justine Alexandria Tek, director of Yuz Museum Shanghai, the museum hopes to "inspire more interest for art among the local people of Panlong."

"We have found that there are many residential compounds and schools near the Panlong Tiandi project, and we believe this is a great location for the museum to interact with the local community," she said.
