The gallery opened in Chongqing's Liangjiang New Area on Oct 27, with its first exhibition featuring The Garden of Forking Paths (originally titled "El jardín de senderos que se bifurcan" in Spanish), based on a 1941 short story by Argentine writer and poet Jorge Luis Borges.

Resonating with the story's themes regarding the secrets of time, the first exhibition is meant to explore the links between time and China's modern arts.

The exhibition attracted many celebrities, including Pan Shiyi, president of SOHO China, as well as some popular musicians and artists. They gave their best wishes for ArtDepot's development over the coming decades.

Over the past decade, ArtDepot Center has accumulated experience from its Beijing business. With the Chongqing center, ArtDepot is aiming to become a driver of artistic trends in Southwest China.

"I was born in Chongqing," said Zhao Qianying, founder of ArtDepot, "After 10 years of practice in Beijing, I want to bring home the atmosphere of art."

Located in Liangjiang Ecool Cultural Creativity Industrial Park, ArtDepot will speed up the new area's goal of building the the most vigorous and influential artistic design cluster in Chongqing and West China.

As of now, Liangjiang New Area is home to many arts and cultural projects, such as Galaxy Museum, TMG Center, Neptune Creativity Island and Liangjiang International Studio, many of which have become online sensations.
