Dazed & Confused and Tiger Beer will be getting together to welcome the year of the Tiger and celebrate Chinese New Year 2010 in style. With four special events all happening on Thursday February 11, we will be taking over some of London Chinatown's most well-known restaurants to showcase a new wave of exciting Chinese creative talent.
We will be exhibiting a mix of post-apocalytic visions, melting landscapes and video installations by artists Gordon Cheung, Gayle Chong Kwan and Suki Chan at the New Loon Fung restaurant. The legendary Chuen Cheung Ku will play host to a trio of Chinese photographers; Kai Z Feng, Madi Ju and Li Wei. At the Prince Charles Cinema, we will be screening the award-winning feature debut She, a Chinese by director and novelist Xiaolu Guo.
Super producer Howie B who has travelled to China regularly will be DJ at our New World party along with a live performance from electronic duo White from Beijing. You can then pop along back to Prince Charles for a midnight screening of the classic A Chinese Ghost Story starring Leslie Cheung.
The Dazed February issue out next week will also come with a supplement with profiles of all participating artists as well as a mini-guide to the different Chinatowns in the UK.
