作为综合性跨学科艺术机构,X美术馆在呈现优秀展览的同时,亦通过举办丰富的公共项目为公众展现来自电影、剧场、音乐、设计、建筑等多元文化领域的精彩内容。X美术馆聚焦新兴艺术力量,围绕展览主题及人文思潮,开展涵盖对谈、工作坊、表演、放映等多种形式的活动,旨在促进不同艺术形式间的对话,并引导公众参与当下人文社会议题的思考与讨论。X美术馆公共项目是一个持续性的交流平台,它为拉近公众与艺术的距离、消解当代艺术的边界提供可能性。

As an interdisciplinary, integrated art institution, X Museum is not only committed to presenting high-standard exhibitions to the public, but also bringing them splendid content from a diverse range of cultural spheres that span over film, theatre, music, design and architecture. Focusing on the artistic power of the emerging, X Museum organizes a series of events and activities including talks, workshops, performances, screenings based on exhibition themes and humanistic trends of thoughts, aiming to promote the communication between different forms of art, and engage audience into the reflection and discussion on current cultural and social issues. X Museum Public Programs are an ongoing platform for communication; they provide possibilities for a closer distance between public and art, as well as a dissolution of boundaries within contemporary art.

在首届三年展《终端>_How Do We Begin?》开幕之际,X美术馆将举行一系列X美术馆三年展主题公共项目“X Sessions”,以拓展展览语境中对当今社会中信息与技术的探讨。“X Sessions”系列公共项目将邀请来自不同背景的艺术家、学者参与,从首届三年展主题出发,呈现不同艺术领域在数字时代的讨论与新兴实践。艺术家叶甫纳,电子音乐人Microhate,专注图像研究的艺术家刘张泊泷等嘉宾将在X美术馆开展对话、工作坊及表演等活动,通过各自的思考与创作成果来回应“How Do We Begin?”的提问。三年展主题公共项目将作为常设性系列项目在X美术馆持续运行,公众可以以此回溯人文领域当下的创作趋势,展望艺术在科技背景下的发展与变迁。

Upon the opening of the first edition of X Museum Triennial How Do We Begin?, X Museum will launch a series of public programs “X Sessions”to coordinate with the triennial as an expansion of the discussion on information and technology in today’s society under the curatorial discourse. X Museum Triennial Public Programs “X Sessions” will invite artists, scholars from different backgrounds to present and explore various ideas and practices of the digital age from different fields of arts. Guests such as artist Ye Funa, key player of Beijing’s underground electronic music scene Microhate, image-dedicated artist Liu Zhangbolong will carry out an array of programs including talks, workshops and performances as a response to the triennial title “How Do We Begin”. The triennial-themed public programs will serve as a constantly-running project at X Museum,through which the public can look back upon the creative journey of the cultural realm, and vision the transition of art under the background of technical development.

此外,X美术馆也将为新兴艺术家提供平台,推出以优秀青年艺术家为主导的公共项目计划“ROOM X”。“ROOM X”象征着一个贯通艺术家、公众及美术馆的民主空间,鼓励具有创新意识、跨越领域的艺术实践。“ROOM X”探索新一代人的艺术生态,关注鲜被察觉的新兴文化和未被代表的创作者,邀请在各自领域出众的年轻艺术家,为公众带来别具特色的文化体验。在X美术馆开馆之际,独立诗人红杏、艺术家小组外出午餐、行为艺术家陈孟涵等将参与到“ROOM X”中来;他们将以X美术馆展览为启发,展开并呈现各自精彩的创作叙事。

Besides, X Museum will also present an emerging-artist-led public program project titled“ROOM X”as a support to outstanding new artists. “ROOM X” refers to a democratic space that connects artists, public and the museum, encouraging artistic practices that are innovative and field-crossing. “ROOM X” explores the artistic ecology of the new generation with a focus on the undiscovered culture and under-represented voices. The programs will invite new artists to bring out unique cultural experiences to the public. Talents including independent poet Hong Xing, performance artist ma9s Chen Menghan, artist duo OUT-TO-LUNCHERS will become the first batch of artists who are participating in “ROOM X”. Taking the X Museum exhibitions as an inspiration, the artists will unfold their creative narration respectively.

对谈/分享会

社群与“共感”——“老好使”艺术项目分享会

嘉宾:
“老好使”艺术共创项目团队
北京ONE艺术创意机构
2020年7月4日 15:00-17:00

Talk and Share

Community and “Con-senting”——Meet and Talk with Lao Hao Shi Art Co-creation Group

Guests:
Artists of “Lao Hao Shi”Art Co-creation Group
BEIJING ONE Art & Creativity Institute
2020.7.4 15:00-17:00

展览《终端>_How Do We Begin?》呈现了亚里士多德对“共感”这一概念在当代社会中的反射。“共感”象征着我们与家庭、群体和自我建立关系的方式。在信息技术飞速发展的今天,媒体与互联网延展了我们共感的渠道与界限,但也加深了不同年龄社群间的代沟。作为对科技并不敏感的群体,老年人的生活依旧建立在传统的社交方式之上,渐渐与年轻一代脱节。艺术家团队“老好使”企图通过“老好使”这一驻地项目, 通过在地艺术实践和互联网分享,拉近青年文化与老年社群的距离,实现不同群体的“共感”。

Exhibition How Do We Begin? echoes the notion of “con-senting”confronted by Aristotle as a reflection of how the concept “con-senting” is interpreted in the contemporary society. “Con-senting”represents the way we sense together and connect with family, community and the self. With the rapid development of information technology, media and the Internet has expanded our way of “con-senting”, meanwhile deepened the generation gap between different communities. As a group who are commonly not sensitive about technology, the elderly still structure their life based on traditional social contacts, thus gradually losing tracks with the younger generations. The artist group Lao Hao Shi has been trying to connect the erderly community with the young. Through the Internet and their unique artistic practice, they aim to achieve a state of“con-senting”in different groups of communities.

2020年,“老好使”项目将期满一年。我们邀请老好使团队及北京ONE艺术共创机构与我们一同进行一场关于“共感”的对话,分享他们如何走进老年群体,又是如何通过当代社交媒体拉近老年人与青年人之间的距离的。

The spring of 2020 marks the end of the residency project Lao Hao Shi. We invite the artists for a share and talk centered on “con-senting”. The group will in particular share with us about how they approach the elderly with art, and how they use social media to introduce the eldery to the young.

The Altar of Sounds – Poetry, Hand-pan and Electronic-acoustic
2020.8.9 15:00-17:00

Guests:
Hongxing, independent poet
Yin Yin, handpan player
Lin Yun, musician
Xiao CongLin, musician

将诗歌的声⾳重新回归现场,作为⼈的现场,为具体的作为声⾳的诗歌重新建⽴祭坛,这是所有诗歌爱好者共同的期待。

Returning the sounds of poetry back to life, constructing an alter of sounds with concrete poetry sounds that serve as words; the alter is formed with tangible bodies, and this is a return that is highly expected.

“声音祭坛”是一个在X美术馆呈现的实验艺术项目,以三年展讨论的信息时代为背景,由手碟演奏者与当代诗人合作,用手碟寻找诗歌语言内部的韵律节奏,配合诗歌原作者表达深层次情感。诗人对于科技与信息时代的思考将通过声音传达。手碟与吟诵串联起空间,时间,人。这种崭新的形式让诗歌从文本转向现场,展现出一种“诗歌二重奏”奇妙观感。

The Altar of Sounds is an experimental project that will be held at X Museum. Starting from the information age that the triennial focuses on, the project brings together contemporary poet and hand-plan performer, searching for the internal rhythms of poetry language and expressing the emotions of the artists. The participants’ reflection and understanding on technology and digital age will be delivered through sounds. The hand-pan and singing connects space, time and people. This new form of performance transforms poetry from texts to on-site activities, demonstrating an intriguing impression of “poetry duet”.

音乐图像学家安•巴克利在《艺术中的音乐》中写道,音乐是具有可视性的图像集合;其对人体感官的作用方式代表着一种“听觉的视觉”。当实时媒体与互联网使图像成为人们生活的日常语汇,音乐作为携带图像的载体,亦在当代衍生出更为复杂的故事叙述。

不同艺术有各自媒介边界,而具体的音乐和图像传递到人脑之后,究竟会变成什么样的存在?在X美术馆三年展期间,我们携手几位活跃于北京地下电子乐场景的音乐人,与图像设计师高晗一起探索这一问题的答案。“Shy People @ X: 白日造梦”就是与你就来和你一起探讨音乐和图像的边界及各自的可塑性。在声色体验中感知音乐转化的想象,图像之间的相互作用,图像序列组对意识的影响。

From the lively beats of Aphex Twins to the conversation between Sophie and robot Sophia, from the computed ambient music of Brian Eno in the late 80s to the first AI album produced by Holly Herndon... As an avant-garde form of music, electronic music has always been closely connected with technology. The development of contemporary music is no longer an exploration of melody, but a constant experiment with computer production, programming and even the story-telling in digital age. X Music is honored to welcome the key player of Beijing’s underground electronic music scene Microhate to present a visual and music live show together with music producers tutu and Pocario and visual artist Han Gao. As a respond to the technology theme of the triennial, Han Gao will develop an image program that changes projected visuals as music flows.

在消费主义时期,商品流通的观察价值是什么?它是否代表了大众的普遍审美?在传播途径中,它的哪些价值被人们利用了,利用后对于生活的改变又是什么?

In the time of consumerism, what is the observational value of commodity circulation? Does it represent the universal aesthetics of everyone? What values are used by people and what changes have they made to our life?

虚拟是现实的延伸,其拓展着现实里达到不了的效果; 当我们活在虚拟世界里时,我们收获了什么,又失去了什么?

Virtuality is an expansion of reality, its realm spans much further than that of reality. When we are living in the virtual world, what will we get and what have we lost?

带着这样的思考与疑问,表演者王楚怡与艺术家叶甫纳、表演者郑莉莉将通过一个关于医疗美容的行为项目,展开其对消费主义、流行文化及虚拟与现实的探讨。该项目关注于大众美容护理日常的习惯,旨在探索医疗美学对于普通人的生活改变,及其对社会影响的步骤方法。在表演结束后,项目参与者还将进行一场演后谈,与现场观众一同分享自己对于消费文化的感悟和认知。

With such questions in mind, artist Ye Funa will join forces with performers Wang Chuyi and Zheng Lili in a discussion of consumerism, popular culture, as well as virtuality and reality through a performance project focusing on medical beauty. Aiming to explore the changes that medical beauty has brought to people’s life, the project pays close attention to the daily routine of people’s skin care habits and the way it impacts on our society. After the performance, the project participants will also bring out a talk to discuss their understandings and feelings on consumerist culture.

 

互动项目

“当她到来时,敲门声戛然而止”

嘉宾:
外出午餐(郭天钰,张役任),艺术家小组

Interactive Program

“When She Arrives, the Knockings Stop”
2020.10.10 15:00-17:00

Guest:
OUT-TO-LUNCHERS (Guo Tianyu, Zhang Ee-ren), artist duo

观众们落座,来参加一场人偶戏剧,“当她到来时,敲门声戛然而止”。 艺术家小组外出午餐从当代社会年轻人感同身受的心理情感出发,在X美术馆为观众带来一段关乎女性主义的互动表演。

After the audiences are seated, an interactive play commences. “When she arrived, the knockings stop”. Based on the universal psychology of contemporary society, the artist duo OUT-TO-LUNCHERS will bring audiences a performance about feminism at X Museum.

西尔维娅·普拉斯写过:“我像贝壳一样把自己关闭,而他们不得不像摘除珍珠一般取出我粘在身上的蛆虫。”

Sylvia Plath once wrote, “I rocked shut, as a seashell. They had to call and call, and pick the worms off me like sticky pearls”.

珍珠诞生于贝壳之内。当有异物进入贝壳时,贝壳会分泌出含有碳酸钙的粘液,将异物层层包裹起来。但是这种自我保护的作用是有限的。当珍珠的体积过大的时候,贝壳反而会被珍珠杀死。

The pearl is born inside of a shell. When foreign matter intrudes a shell, the shell will slim mucus containing calcium carbonate to wrap up the material . However, such self-protection remains limited as the shell will be instead killed by the pearl when it grows too large.

一个女人死了。在她的葬礼之后,两个曾有过一面之缘的人坐在一起,分享自己的情感与回忆。他们通过回忆来使死去的女人重生。

A woman passed away. After her funeral, two people who happened to have met each other once sit together to share their emotions and memories. They regenerate the dead woman through their mutual memories.

Guest:
Chen Menghan (ma9s), artist

创作实践一直横跨音乐、表演、多媒体等多领域的艺术家陈孟涵常活跃于北京、上海及纽约的独立艺术场景中。以社交网络、幻想文学、民间传说、亚文化、电子音乐为灵感,陈孟涵的作品往往热衷于探索虚拟与现实世界的交错边缘。她的表演常凌驾于当今社会认知,在自成一体的幻维度世界观和逻辑叙事中展开。10月24日,陈孟涵将化身其表演人格ma9s,为观众奉献一场精彩演出。

Chen Menghan’s creative journey stretches across various fields including music, performance, and multi-media installation. Taking inspirations from social media, fantasy fictions, folklores, sub-cultures and electronic music, Chen is active in independent art scenes in Beijing, Shanghai and New York. Chen’s works usually explore the interlacing boundaries between the virtual world and reality, and sometimes disregards common knowledge in today’s society and unwraps with a narrative logic. On 5th September, Chen Menghan will incarnate into ma9s to bring out a unique performance for all.
