由于新冠疫情爆发至今,望远镜已经关闭五个多月了。到2020年7月初,草场地仍然对外来者关闭,使得望远镜和其他画廊以及企业无法正常运营。因此,我们不得不决定永久关闭目前从2012年开始使用的草场地空间。我们将为望远镜寻找一个全新的画廊空间,并在过渡期间以其他方式展示艺术家的作品。我对望远镜的未来感到的是兴奋,而非悲伤,因为望远镜的使命和展线扩展到其他空间、领域和合作方。2019年通过望远镜,我在美国策划了两次中国新兴艺术家的群展。第一次是在纽约 Luhring Augustine 画廊,已于2019年10月开幕。第二次展览,现在计划于2020年9月在洛杉矶 Bridge Projects 开幕。望远镜持续在运转,我们将继续追求为中国艺术家打开西方的大门,并在北京为当地的展览找到一个新的家。

It has been over 5 months that Telescope has been closed to the public because of the Coron***irus pandemic. As of July 2020 Caochangdi is still closed to all outsiders making it impossible for Telescope and other galleries and businesses to operate. Therefore we h**e decided to permanently close the current Caochangdi location where Telescope began in 2012 and look for a new gallery space and alternate ways of exhibiting artists work. Instead of sadness I am really excited about the future of Telescope as it expands its mission and walls to other spaces, areas, and collaborations. In 2019, through Telescope, I curated two Chinese emerging artist exhibitions in the US. The first was in New York at the Luhring Augustine Gallery, which opened in October 2019, and the second exhibition, which is now scheduled to open in September 2020 in Los Angeles at Bridge Projects. Telescope is alive and well as it continues its pursuit to open doors to the west for Chinese artists and to find a new home in Beijing for local exhibitions.


在此我要感谢所有望远镜的朋友们,感谢你们的支持、信心、能量和爱,尤其是在当下这个困难时期。

I want to thank all of the friends of Telescope for your support, faith, energy and love, especially now during these troubled times.

一个位于北京草场地的非营利项目空间,由美国著名策展人 James Elaine 先生于2012年创建,旨在推广并支持新兴艺术家与中国艺术社群,提供展览、策展、论述与讲座等各种艺术的可能性在此发生。我们致力推动望远镜成为一座沟通国内外的文化桥梁,并提供中国新兴艺术家与国外交流与对话的良好平台。

A non-profit styled project space located in Cao Chang Di, Beijing. It is established by American curator James Elaine in 2012. Its aim is to serve the emerging artists and art communities of China by providing exhibition, curatorial, writing, and mentoring opportunities in its gallery space. Telescope will also be a cultural bridge providing exposure and opportunities for China’s emerging artists abroad.
