Imagine a super-high building surrounded by nothing but air, spacious, isolated, sparsely populated, with unsurprisingly no celebrated history, while the greenbelt gradually becomes a pasture within the cloud clusters, where they coexist.
The museum space (1600 sqm) will be transformed into a creative laboratory, an interdisciplinary platform co-developed by international artists, creative thinkers, independent scholars, urban planners and stakeholders, a mini co-op city inside a skyscraper.
Exhibition, @ Art Museum of China, Greater Bay Area, Shenzhen, China, 15 March-15 April 2019
