Liberation – Chinese Arts Centre, Manchester

24 Jun


The Chinese Arts Centre in Manchester opens the doors of their new show ‘Liberation‘ tonight. Part exhibition, part events programme and part on-going conversation Liberation is a project instigated as a reaction to the explosion of social media and the recent censorship of self-publishing platforms in China.

As well as the Arts Centre showing works from a range of artists, MadLab will be exploring the possibilities for subversive virtual identities in both English and Chinese speaking online spaces with their Social Space Invaders event (on the 28th) and artist Brendan Fan will be exploring the online diatribe around social media throughout the exhibition run. He’s also narrating an alternative exhibition launch experience through his own exhibition Facebook page which you can enjoy be becoming his imaginary friend here.

‘Liberation’ Co-curated with Carol Lu and Liu Ding
Previews at the Chinese Arts Centre tonight, 24 June 2010
and runs from the 25 June – 14 August 2010
