Cultural exhibitions and chances to get involved

What’s on at the Chinese Arts Centre

New exhibitions, showcases and Mandarin sessions. There’s plenty going on at the Chinese Arts Centre in the Northern Quarter this summer.

Already installed, local artist Angie Atmadjaja’s ‘Intrinsic’ will be on display until 11 June. The first of two site-specific sound pieces, it combines audio and light to react sensitively to sound vibrations. intrinsic_angie.jpg
Following this, Atmadjaja’s second piece ‘Structure’ will be exhibited from 2 to 23 July creating an invisible sound landscape within the space. Not only will this exhibition be in place to enlighten visitors, but Atmadjaja and local interactive sound artist Amanda Belantara will be hosting public events to coincide with the installation, with and evening reception being held on Friday 1 July.

Liu Ding’s month-long residency will be coming to an end on 15 June when Beijing-based critic and curator Carol Yinghua Lu will offer a free talk at 2pm.

A recent Goldsmiths Masters graduate, Xinyi Li, is showcasing his political perceptions by the means of art until 17 September. Focussing on the ‘power nations’ of the world, ‘Civil Diplomacy’ encourages visitors to interact with the piece by taking images of themselves trying to reunite grippers baring the flags of countries.

The next regular Mandarin Speaker Corner event will be held on Saturday 2 July from 1.30pm allowing Mandarin speakers the chance to build their confidence with free language practice before the screening of a Mandarin language film.

Other events to watch out for include Everything Everywhere, a BA photography graduate exhibition from Stockport College, from 16 to 19 June and Daksha Patel’s showcase from 20 June to 3 July.

If admiring the artwork on display isn’t enough for you, then there are currently several opportunities for talented artists to get involved with the centre on a different level. If you were inspired by Liu Ding, then applications for next year’s Breathe Residencies are being taken until 5pm on Monday 13 June. Applications for the Chongqing 501 Artspace Residency are open until 5pm on Saturday 30 July.
