The Long Museum is a private museum founded by the Chinese collector-couple Liu Yiqian and Wang Wei. Currently, Long Museum consists of two large museums in Pudong, Shanghai as well as on the Xuhui Riverfront—the Long Museum Pudong and Long Museum West Bund respectively—making for a distinctive artistic ecology of “two museums in one city”.

Long Museum is presently the private museum with the greatest scale and with the greatest collecting power domestically in China, with a rich collection and comprehensive system. It takes on the mission of promoting artistic development and cultural inheritance all the while being rooted domestically; at the same time, Long Museum pays great attention to the contrasting presentation and research of ancient and contemporary art and of Eastern and Western cultures.

The exhibitions of the Long Museum are divided into three major categories: exhibitions from museum collections, exhibitions at the invitation of the museum director, as well as domestic and international projects from exchanges and cooperation. The “Xu Zhen’s Major Exhibition”, about to open, is the first project from among the exhibitions as invited by the museum director in 2015. In 2015, this series will also launch exhibitions such as “What’s Left to Appear—Ding Yi Solo Exhibition”, “Liu Wei Solo Exhibition”, and “Wang Yuyang Solo Exhibition”.
