「頌」艺术中心选址于北京艺术心脏——798艺术区最黄金的位置，毗邻「木木美术馆」；「当代唐人画廊」和「常青画廊」，我们的空间选择在北京市文物保护建筑「50年代苏联援建的包豪斯风格建筑楼体内」，充满历史感和时代性。我们力邀国际知名建筑师事务所Temp的主理人，也是AD全球100建筑师获奖人——Howard Jiho Kim操刀空间设计，以「现代且典雅」的空间美学为基调，营造现代艺术的精神殿堂。
“Soul Art” is located in the centre of Beijing Art – the prime location in 798 Art District and adjacent to “M WOODS”,”Tang Contemporary Art” and “Galleria Continua”. Our space chose “Bauhaus style architecture built with the assistance of the Soviet Union in the 1950s” ,which is a cultural relic protection building in Beijing. The place is full of historical sense and modernity. We sincerely invite Howard Jiho Kim, the director of Temp which is an internationally renowned architect firm and the winner of AD Global 100 architects, to design the space. He creates a spiritual palace of modern art with a basis of space aesthetics——modern and elegance.
我们的品牌——「頌」，灵感源自距今3000年前的中国诗歌总集《诗经》。《诗经》共305篇，是我们中国古老的文化宝库。分为三部分：由民间创作的乡土民歌《风》；贵族文人创作的乐歌《雅》；和庙堂宗祠上吟诵的诗歌《頌》。而据《诗.大序》中所释：“頌者，美盛德之形容，以其成功告于神明者也。” 所以，我们把自己的艺术空间命名为「頌」Soul Art, 是以寄托着“艺术，是一座属于现代人心灵的庙堂。”——这一美好的精神向往。
Our brand – “Soul Art” is inspired by The Book of Songs (Shijing), a collection of Chinese poetry 3000 years ago. The book of songs, with 305 chapters, is an ancient cultural treasure in China, which is divided into three parts: the local folk song “Wind” created by the folk; The music song “Ya” created by noble literati; And the poem “Ode” recited on the temples and ancestral halls. According to the interpretation in the preface of the poem “those who sing praise are those who praise the gods with their success.” ,we named our art space “Soul Art” to express a beautiful spiritual longing that is “art is a temple that belongs to the soul of modern people”.
而她的英文更具巧思：SOUL ART既是 Soul Art「灵魂的艺术」；亦是含有SO和创始人姓氏SU 「苏」的深意。
The English name is more ingenious: Soul Art means not only the soul of art, but also the founder’s sur name “Su”.
