Black Sesame is IFP's projects space which opened in June 2014. Located in a converted boiler room of the IFP courtyard at Heizhima hutong 13, Black Sesame is an experimental space for exhibitions, performances, workshops and more. With its characteristic high ceiling, flexible lighting conditions and ideal exhibition layout, Black Sesame is a unique 'white cube' located in one of Beijing's best preserved courtyards.


Apart from being closely linked to IFP's residency programme and the resident artists, Black Sesame also works as a meeting space between the local Beijing art scene and international community of artists. With a programme focussing on solo exhibitions mixing Chinese and international artists with overlapping themes or interests, we encourage hands-on experimentation and transformation of the space itself. Artists and exhibitions are linked together through a programme which includes artists talks and performances.
