This mammoth space is made from the former Longhua Airport's hangars. It boasts an area of 9,000 sqm and displays installations to match the size. The museum’s creation was a huge undertaking by Indonesian billionaire collector Budi Tek, founder of the Yuz Foundation, and aims to bring a deeper appreciation for contemporary art. Tek is an avid fan of large-scale installation art, which is partly the reason for the sheer scale of the Yuz Museum. Installations have included “Planes” by Adel Abdessemen, a complex mesh of three full-size airplanes. The lobby is marked by a huge Maurizio Cattela sculpture: an olive tree growing out of a cube of earth. Smaller works are displayed as well, usually in separate galleries alongside the vast main space. Recently the museum also held the largest retrospective of Italian sculptor Alberto Giacometti's work to date. As the museum is part of the non-profit Yuz Foundation, it also takes an interest in social welfare and public education.
