JUE | Music + Art Launches 7th Edition In Beijing & Shanghai
After an incredible 6 years during which time JUE grew from a handful of events over a few days in 2009 to 135 events over 2 weeks in 2014, the 2015 edition will be more focused and curated than ever
March 12-22, 2015 sees the return of JUE | Music + Art for year seven and once again presents a musical line up that spans the audible universe and an art programme that focuses specifically on music and the sounds around us.
Korean indie pop sits next to Australian punk from the late 70's; Mandarin and American Hip-Hop double bills meet Chinese photo exhibits of seminal bands while music-heads converse on the state of the international music community followed by a cassette DJ show showcasing the best music from the African continent; From cycling scavenger hunts to live shows on buses.
After an incredible six years during which time JUE grew from a handful of events over a few days in 2009 to 135 events over 2 weeks in 2014, the 2015 edition will be more focused and curated than ever. The festival period will be a lean but action-packed 11 days with fewer arts events, most of which will focus on what JUE does best music.
JUE | Music + Art will continue to work with some of our brilliant and amazing partners from years gone by, but we will take responsibility for more of the arts events than ever before.
The organizers of JUE | Music + Art (Split Works) on China's changing creative climate: "When we launched JUE, seven long years ago, China was a very different place. The creative communities were few and far between, stratified and uncommunicative.
We created JUE | Music + Art in order to try and connect these communities and promote music and art that wasn't getting attention from the Chinese media and potential fans. We felt that if we bundled together exhibitions, installations, recitations and performances, then together we would be stronger. If we opened up our marketing channels to our friends and those we admired, then we would be able to get a little more attention for everyone. For five years, this worked very well and the festival and its attendant arts grew and prospered.
But the market in China has changed, and that is a wonderful thing. In Shanghai and Beijing particularly, there is now a resplendent array of thriving livehouses, galleries, arts communities, cultural centres and even festivals. You can say that our initial mission has been accomplished.
We believe that JUE still has a place in this ecosystem and as we return to 2015, we present to you a shorter, more focused, more curated festival that will remain the most fun urban arts festival in China. We give to you the complete lineup for JUE | Music + Art."
