Duende Art Museum (DAM) is a non-profit public art institution in OCT Harbour PLUS, Shunde, Guangdong Province, China, which was founded by collector Ms. Wu Meiman (Mandy), and opened in 12 September 2020. The three-story exhibition hall in DAM covers an area of about 1,000 square meters which was designed by a Chinese designer Jian Junkai (Can) who worked in Zaha Hadid Architects.
Upholding the concept of "Glocalisation", in the practice of contemporary art, DAM tries to integrate domestic and foreign resources, combine high-standard and diversified forms of artistic expression, establish an operation mechanism with exhibitions, academic researches and public projects, and constantly promote the dialogue between tradition and contemporary, localization and globalization.
As a contemporary witness of Lingnan culture, DAM will keep an eye on the ecology of Lingnan and contemporary art as a observer of the time, thus becoming a contemporary art laboratory that is widely involved in the integration and construction of diverse cultures in the digital era. In Shunde, a typical field of consumption, DAM focuses on the living conditions of people in the consumer society and continues to explore the intersection of consumer culture and contemporary art.
