Rolling Snowball/8 - Xiamen
Three Shadows Xiamen Photography Art Centre
20 May - 18 June 2017
2017 marks the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the Consulate General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Guangzhou. In celebration of this meaningful occasion, CEAC, as the most important anchor point for the promotion of Dutch culture in Southeast China, has curated and organized the 8th edition of "Rolling Snowball", co-hosted by Three Shadows Xiamen Photography Art Centre, to deepen the cultural exchange between China and the Netherlands through contemporary art.
Since 1999, the Chinese European Art Center, deeply rooted in its home base on the subtropical island of Xiamen, has served as a home away from home to more than 300 artists and creative professionals from all around the world. For 18 years, CEAC has been fortunate to be a part of the life-changing, perception-altering journeys of some of the world’s most brilliant creative minds. Witnessing the familiar becomes unfamiliar and vice versa for those who engage in CEAC’s work, it was decided from the very beginning that liberation, transformation and growth through inter-cultural dialogues are at the core of CEAC’s organizational mission.
Titled "Homecoming", the 8th edition of "Rolling Snowball" discusses the form of existence and aesthetic significance of the concepts of home and returning home, exploring the aesthetics of "elsewhere".
