Xi·Art Museum Generative Project

Through long-term exchanges and cooperation with domestic and international artists, the Generative Project roots artistic creations in specific natural fields and contexts, where the creative works will be permanently preserved and displayed.

Xi·Art Museum Generative Project is hosted by Lucitopia Town·Zixi Qingliang Mountain and Curated by C-Platform. C-Platform was founded in Xiamen, China in 2012. It is a non-profit culture and art research and curatorial organization supported by Lucitopia Culture.
