Founded in 2004, Beijing Commune has firmly established itself as a prominent gallery nestled within the vibrant 798 Art district in Beijing. Its initial programs were mainly group shows exploring various currents in contemporary art while now it primarily focuses on solo shows to carry on the in-depth research. Beijing Commune stands as a vital platform for esteemed figures and budding talents in the realm of Chinese art. Eminent artists such as Zhang Xiaogang, Song Dong, Yin Xiuzhen, Hong Hao, Xiao Yu, Liu Jianhua, Hai Bo, and numerous others have unveiled seminal solo exhibitions at the gallery, marking significant milestones in their illustrious careers. Concurrently, the gallery serves as an incubator for important artists, providing them with the freedom to explore and conceive new visions within the realm of Chinese contemporary art. Central to the gallery's ethos is an unwavering commitment to showcasing a diverse array of artistic voices. This commitment is reflected in its roster of artists, such as Chang Yuchen, Hu Xiaoyuan, Liang Shuo, Liang Yuanwei, Ma Qiusha, Shang Yixin, Song Ta, Wang Guangle, Wang Luyan, Xie Molin, Yang Xinguang, Zhao Yao, Zhou Yilun, Ge Yulu, Wang Lijun, and many others. These artists epitomize the vibrancy and dynamism that permeate the contemporary art landscape in China. In 2018, Beijing Commune is honored to represent first solo show in China of Richard Deacon, the leading British artist and recipient of the Turner Prize, following his acclaimed major exhibition at Tate Britain in 2014. This significant milestone exemplifies Beijing Commune's dedication to introducing exceptional international art to Chinese audiences.
In a landmark moment, Beijing Commune received the "Galleries of the Year award" at the First artnet Awards Gala in 2016. Additionally, the gallery was honored with the "Best Exhibition Award - Innovation" at the Gallery Weekend Beijing 2020 for the exhibition by Ge Yulu.
