well well, Beijing has a way of punishing me for leaving it sometimes. Not only are we dealing with Black Rabbit Festival and a one off Dirty Deeds reunion, there is also the Creators Project to contend with… man, the things you do for friends! At least, I get to discover all the good food in Taipei.
Last year, they made a splash in Beijing over 3 days… they’re back for more according to this blurb:
Last year, our Beijing event was the biggest and most elaborate of our global event series, spanning three days and bringing together some of China’s brightest creative minds, alongside innovative artists and musicians from overseas.
This year, we’re thrilled to be returning to the world famous 798 Arts District to partner with the eminent UCCA gallery, one of the most innovative and comprehensive art centers in the city. As a thriving artistic community, the 798 Arts District allows art and architecture to converge with urban culture. The converted factory and its surrounding artist compounds and galleries, colored by China’s past, have evolved into a new age promoting creativity.
We’ll be hosting performances by Mount Kimbie, Supermarket, PK14, Glasser, Optimo and Zhang Shouwang of the famed Chinese indie rock band Carsick Cars. We’ll also be premiering a selection of shorts by Ray Lei, a new film by Peng Lei, Runscape by Map Office, Spike Jonze and Arcade Fire’s Scenes from the Suburbs, and Logorama by H5.
All weekend, we’ll have a wide variety of interactive installations on display including new work from Aaajiao, Francis Lam (aka DbDbking) and Joao Vasco Paiva, Feng Mengbo’s brand new Bruce Lee VJ Project, Life on Mars Revisited by David Bowie, Mick Rock and Barney Clay and Room With A View by UVA.
You can get all the information you need over on their official website:
There will be performances by PK14 amongst others and tons of interesting fun showcased, discussed etc… enjoy it Beijing
