Monthly Lunchtime Talk in Chinatown

4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art invites you to the first of our monthly lunchtime curator’s talks at 12.30PM on Friday 20 April presented by 4A Director Aaron Seeto who will introduce key ideas behind our current exhibition, Cola Project.

On for only a short time at 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art in Haymarket, this is the first solo exhibition in Australia by this provocative, 25 year old Beijing artist He Xiangyu. Developed in 2008, Cola Project is an audacious and ambitious work that investigates material transformation, the products of global capitalism and the impact that its images have upon human culture. In 2008, the artist worked with factory workers to boil up thousands of litres of cola drink over a period of a year. It’s an exciting opportunity to see contemporary art and ideas being produced in Beijing, by a younger generation of artists.

4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art is located in Haymarket, on Hay Street, between Pitt and George Streets.

Free event. Bring a small group along or just yourself. Light refreshments will be provided.
