Year of the Horse at LA Art Book Fair

New Territories Studio will be participating in the second annual LA Art Book Fair by Printed Matter from January 31-February 2, with a selection of Chinese zines, art books and indie publishing. In a stroke of synchronicity, the fair happens to coincide with the start of the Chinese Lunar New Year – extra auspicious, which is why we’re calling our table Year of the Horse. Please stop by and celebrate by buying some books! More information below:

Year of the Horse by New Territories Studio
For the 2014 LA Art Book Fair, Shanghai-based curatorial platform New Territories Studio presents a vibrant selection of materials from China’s current indie publishing scene. In collaboration with leading Chinese zine publishers, we will showcase a diverse array of zines, artist books, experimental comics and small-run journals, many of which have never been shown internationally before. We hope to not only show but contextualize this emerging movement in China’s contemporary art/design world, and spur more exchange between Chinese zinemakers and their overseas counterparts.

Tulou Open House – Preview Event in Hong Kong

In case you’re in Hong Kong, for ARTHK or otherwise, please stop by the Tulou Open House preview event on May 14 – this project has been in the works for quite a while, and we’re very excited to finally share it. Official press release to follow.

Tulou Open House: Project Preview in Hong Kong
Monday, May 14, 3 – 5pm
Afterschool Cafe
2/F, 17 Yun Ping Road, Causeway Bay
銅鑼灣恩平 道17號2樓
RSVP to Samantha Culp, samantha@newterritories.org

This Monday, please swing by Afterschool Cafe for a preview of the Tulou Open House project 2012 – a temporary, site-specific creative experiment and mini-conference taking place this June at a traditional Tulou (round earthen house) in Fujian Province. During this open-ended “expedition”, a diverse group of artists and scholars from greater China will explore the structure, symbolism, and everyday life of the Tulou as a laboratory for new projects and collaborations, a fresh lens for the concept of creative community, and a potential site for expansive future projects at the Tulou and beyond. The event will culminate in a public “Open House” event on the weekend of June 8-10, which is open to visitors and the local community alike, and will stage a program of talks, screenings, workshops, performances, guided tours, and artistic interventions.

On Monday, organizers Dana Wu (Friends of the Tulou) and Samantha Culp (New Territories Studio) will present an overview of the project, discuss its background and goals, and lead a conversation with HK-based Tulou participants and others who might like to join or learn more.
