Completed in 2007, Dafen Art Museum is an iconic cultural building in Shenzhen. The design of the museum reinterprets the architectural fabric of Dafen Village. By extending the spatial form of the village to its façade, the museum reserves a special stage for creation formed by multiple blank frames. The chief curator of the Shenzhen Case Pavilion at 2010 Shanghai Expo curated a series of contemporary art events at Dafen Art Museum, a sub-venue of the Expo Nearly 50 mural artists from Northern Ireland, Switzerland, Greece, the UK, South Africa, Germany, the US, Italy, Israel and China painted murals on the façade to form a unique, open-air collection of the museum.
