He Art Museum designed by architect Tadao Ando opened in Shunde, Guangdong on March 30, 2021, with "BEYOND: TADAO ANDO and ART", Tadao Ando's first solo exhibition focusing on art. The exhibition is organized in three chapters —— "#BEYOND ART", "#BEYOND LIGHT" and "#BEYOND ANDO" —— to discover Tadao Ando's art life from a new perspective. The first chapter will feature works by ten masters who intertwined with Ando's artistic life and influenced his work, including Pablo Picasso, Ellsworth Kelly, Alexander Calder, Richard Long, and many others. At the same time, the exhibition concept is "discovery beyond what you see" through the reproduction of Tadao Ando's masterpiece of geo-art, Chichu Art Museum. 


The exhibition features the works of 10 masters who have been closely intertwined withTadao Ando's artistic life and have had a profound influence on his work.These include Pablo Picasso, Ellsworth Kelly, Alexander Calder, and many others. With these artistic inspirations across the ages, Ando continues to develop and create his own artistic language in his art practice.


Through his perception of light, Tadao Ando has created numerous works that transcend the physical properties of light and sublimate to the viewer's mind and spiritual feelings. This chapter will follow him as he explores the creative trajectory of light as an artistic tool.


The final piece will take the audience into the time and space he created and into his "Ando-style" artistic achievement of desperate forgetfulness. Through the reproduction of the art masterpiece —— Chichu Art Museum, the concept of"Discovery Beyond What You See"is conveyed, as well as the spirit and hope for the continuation of transcendence.
