UCCA Beijing

Alternative Museum Tours


Community Initiatives
Location:  New Gallery

During each exhibition period, UCCA’s docents are invited to submit proposals for alternative museum tours. Alternative museum tours should encourage visitors to UCCA to explore new modes of engagement with artworks in the exhibition halls. In lieu of the usual “walk and talk” tour format, alternative museum tours will offer audiences the opportunity to interact with art via drawing, writing, singing, photography, etc. Participants for each tour will be accepted on a first come, first served basis.


*Spots must be reserved in advance. UCCA members can participate for free, and non-UCCA members must purchase exhibition tickets to attend;

*Please call us at +86 10-5780-0200 anytime Tuesday through Sunday from 10 am to 6 pm, or email us at ve@ucca.org.cn to RSVP. Participants must RSVP individually. Spaces are limited, so if you would like to attend, please let us know at your earliest convenience;
