Major new media installations and commissioned works developed for the 31
metre video wall driven by 56 programmable monitors at the Art Museum of
China Millenium Monument. The Central Academy of Fine Arts is hosting a one
month residency with Australian artist Justine Cooper who will prepare work
for this big screen. Artists projects are delivered through CDR, DVD,
digital video, screening programs and program events include lectures,
symposium, artists talks and interactive social events!
This year's MAAP Festival theme "MOIST", is an evocative adjective,
suggestive of conditions relating to life; growth; humidity; humanity. These
loaded references unleash imaginative poetic associations as wide as a fine
foggy mist, a first kiss or a sweaty palm. Art meets technology in a mix of
emotion and wires!
MAAP in Beijing has been collaboratively achieved with the generous support
and advice of our partners; The China International Exhibitions Agency, The
Gohua Group, The Art Museum of China Millennium Monument, The Central
