Chengdu, the cultural capital of Southwest China

What remains for a people when they have lost everything is their culture. So it is important for a country to showcase its culture. The cultural revelation of a people goes through the construction of cultural buildings. In this way, the area where the building is located will also be enhanced. This is how Chengdu City became the cultural capital of southwest China. Reading this article, you will discover the reasons that give this status to the city. 

Chengdu Tianfu Art Museum for local culture

Art collector Adrian Cheng continues to propagate his cultural project. It seems that the state wanted to follow him in his drive to make the city of Chengdu shine. Indeed, the State has proceeded to establish two major museums in this city. These are the Chengdu Tianfu Art Museum and the Chengdu Museum of Contemporary Art. The first museum is composed of 13 different galleries. There are also four public education spaces, six art storage facilities and two university lecture halls. It covers an area of 430,556 square feet. The museum has a clear purpose: to collect and research local art in the context of international and national art history. 

Chengdu Museum of Contemporary Art

The second state-funded museum is the Chengdu Museum of Contemporary Art. The special feature of this museum is that it is considered to be the museum of the future. Thus, it is intended to enable the development of local art of the future on an international level. The Chengdu Museum of Contemporary Art covers an area of 355,209 square feet. The museum consists of eight galleries and two art warehouses. There is also a video room and three public education spaces. There are also multi-purpose arts spaces. These two museums add to the city's artistic and cultural arsenal. The attraction of artistic activities in this city is a motivation for many other cultural promoters. This may even motivate the installation of the UCCA contemporary art centre in this city.
