About twocities

Within every city, two cities simultaneously emerge. The first represents all that is good and right and desirable; the second city everything that we long to see changed.

The twocities art gallery seeks to help build the first city, through art and events that champion beauty, commitment, thoughtfulness and community. As one of the few galleries in China specializing in contemporary handcrafted art, twocities represents Chinese artists pioneering in modern glass, ceramics, jewelry and lacquer. We are dedicated to providing a platform for contemporary craft artists to engage in international dialogue.

Other events include lectures, film showings and concerts showcasing musicians from a variety of musical genres. In keeping with twocities gallery’s desire to build “the good city ” we work to promote events which highlight beauty, thoughtfulness and innovation in artistic expression and in the city we inhabit.
