UCCA X SYSTEM: Awakening Battersea

Finished Sat, Nov 25, 2023 , 3:30pm-late
3/F, Yunhai Mansion, 1329 Huaihai Zhong Lu, near Baoqing Lu


The UCCA Center for Contemporary Art, renowned for its sound art projects over the past couple of decades here in China and abroad, brings their Awakening Battersea project (born out of the exhibition "China Power Station" in London last winter) to SYSTEM - gathering a treasure trove of China’s avant-garde and experimental scene. Seriously, the lineup is stacked with over eleven eclectic acts in the field - offering everything from jazz-fueled improvisational deep dives to eardrum trauma-inducing noise. Highlights include Beijing sound artist Zafka (Zhang Anding), computer music extraordinaire ayrtbh (Wang Changcun), glitch practitioner Feng Jiangzhou, jazz percussionist virtuoso Liú Pī (known for his work in avant jazz outfit Dreaming Julie), and famed harsh noise artist Torturing Noise. The event is broken up into two halves, kicking off in the afternoon and dovetailing into a DJ afterparty with SYSTEM regulars. 3:30 PM. RMB 120/160.
