Avent Studio, LittleE Studio and MusicDish*China will present a unique event assembling Chinese creators who have chosen very different paths, and yet share a common spirit. Commencing with a panel and Q&A, the event will include an interactive art workshop named ‘Lemon Finger Workshop’ that places the participant in the role of creator, constructing their very own personalized artwork to gain a vivid experience about how the new generation of artists and designers incorporate humor within their works. Visit if you want to join the workshop.

Avent Studio, LittleE Studio 和 MusicDish*China将集合那些具有独特创新精神的艺术家们在一个特定的场合来分享一个共同理念。在讨论部分结束后,我们邀请LittleE Studio的周易,Avent Studio的呼延乃纾两位共同组织一场名为’柠檬手指’的工作坊。届时您就有机会看到他们非常个性化的艺术品,并亲身参与其中,共同完成制作。希望通过这次工作坊,参与者能对中国年轻一代的艺术趣味实践有一个更直观的认知和感受。如果您有兴趣参加本次工作坊,如果您有兴趣参加本次工作坊,您可以访问

The panel will feature artists from Beijing where Zhou Yi is redefining the relationship between people and their bodies, to He Wei who fuses food into a new artistic expression and ex-MTV VJ Stone (Schutze) Shi who incorporates world currencies in his artwork to gain a deeper understanding of Chinese society. The panel will not only illuminate the audience on the new trends influencing today's contemporary art, but will also put a spotlight on the very different paths and experiences that has led to each ones creations. The panel will be hosted and moderated by Eric de Fontenay, founder of MusicDish*China and advocate of "Yaogun Wenhua" (Chinese rock culture).

在本次专题讨论上,我们邀请到来自北京的艺术家周易,她的作品重新审视人和身体之间的关系 , 何为是将食物带入当代艺术,研究饮食行为的艺术家。石村将世界货币体现了在他的艺术作品里,让人们从更深的层次上来解读中国社会。这个小组不仅影响了当代的艺术而且让人们注意到不同创作的方法和经验。这场活动将由MusicDish China的创始人Eric de Fontenay主办,他一直在力图推进中国“摇滚文化”的发展。

The Sour Generation describe the young Chinese artists today are not bitter like last generation nor sweet but quite sour. The night will also feature drinks (yes, spiked) and food served during the Workshop around the concept.


While many may identify Chinese contemporary art with the post-cultural revolution of the 80s or "cynical realism" of the 90s, a new generation of Chinese artists and designers has emerged to elevate the form to the next level. Unlike their predecessors, this new wave of creators is a globalized, post-internet generation seeking to find China's identity in the 21st century and its place in the broader world, often through humour, flirtation with taboos and an irreverent view of the world and issues surrounding them. Their works look forward, not back; are light and neon, not dark and rebellious; and imbued with a confidence of being able to shape an ever-changing society.
