Hua International is a contemporary art gallery based in Berlin and Beijing. Driven by a cosmopolitan and collaborative ethos, Hua International is a new globally active gallery for a fast-changing art market. Founded by Xiaochan Hua in 2017, the gallery champions a cosmopolitan program across its two spaces, featuring emerging and established international artists with a special emphasis on cross-disciplinary, performative, and socially-engaged art. Under the leadership of Hua, the gallery has positioned itself at the epicenter of two vibrant art districts. In Berlin, it is located in a historic, pre-war building situated in Potsdamer Strasse; in Beijing, the gallery relocated to the acclaimed 798 Arts District in August 2020. The gallery leverages its bi-location as a means to expand how the work of emerging and established artists can be presented and received in radically diverse cultural contexts, providing a completely unique framework for understanding contemporary artworks. Hua’s vision is to stimulate a dialogue between the artist-centered communities in Beijing and Berlin, to break the boundaries between dominant and subaltern practices, with the purpose of closing the gap between center-and-periphery dynamics that no longer serve the pioneering and unique art practices emerging in these two art capitals. Hua International also hosts curatorial projects and artistic collaborations in order to pursue new avenues of production, discourse, and promotion of contemporary art. In a time of tectonic shifts in the art world, flexibility, experimentation, and collaboration are key components of the gallery’s model in promoting works of art that are unique and new to the market.
