Press Release:
The show is the first new media art show features 38 artists from China and America. It will be arranged into three sections, performance, screening and exhibition.

‘In the context of contemporary life and development of technology, the interpretation of end to end could be endless. It may not be something between two extremities, but a cycle and loop without ends.

This show is dedicated to the discovery of new media artists living in the US and China. Some of the selected artists have the experience of living in both countries while others have never been to the other side of the world. Nevertheless, they all use digital media as part of their artistic practice. The show includes three different sections: performance, exhibition, and screening. We consider it as a platform for debate relating to contemporary ideologies, cultural integration and the power of new media. The theme “end to end” is inspired by ideas and research related to end-to-end connectivity and network intelligence. It also refers to the idea of connecting artists from different backgrounds by showing their work together. We are able to exchange images and ideas more rapidly than ever before because of the development of new media. But we are still distanced from each other physically. As the Chinese people became familiar with western ideology and practices they began to fuse their new found knowledge with their historical heritage to put forward truly unique works of art. This show gives voice to representatives of this generation, putting the artists presented here and their works in a broader cultural context. ‘
