Architecture is like frozen music and three-dimensional painting, while architects play the magic of freezing the music and building the paintings. This time, with the guidance of two artists, our young guests are going to experience the secret of architecture and the magic of architects.

Every year, UCCA features many exhibitions that inspire and ignite the imagination. This is the first event of our new “artist-led series”, which will allow kids to engage more deeply with our exhibitions and the work of artists on display.
