Outline

Oi! considers art as a part of human culture. We believe that art allows curators, artists, designers and participants to share their experience, knowledge and creativity with one another. As a result of the precipitation and fermentation of art through life experience, we inspired to light up our lives, creating an ideal world where mutual empowerment can take place. Oi! revitalized the historic site and transformed it into an art space with contemporary art context.

Evaluation

Oil Street Art Space (Oil!) is built on the former seaside yacht club (before sea-fill); a rare ancient building constructed more than 100 years ago. While meticulously renovating and preserving ancient buildings, the cultural relics revitalization project makes its success by moderately applying new elements (such as fences, display board and so on) implicitly as well. Yet, most importantly, it reserves venue for the ancient complex by retaining a series of aged trees and a patch of luxuriant yard. It's no wonder that Oil Street Art Space still holds a place in the crowded northern urban zone. No visual and hearing interference could disturb if you walk there. What an oasis it is!
