Dispel an Resetting

Date: July 22 - 10 am

Venue: EGG Gallery in Beijing

EGG Gallery is delighted to present a new body of works by Chinese artist Bai Jingsheng. In her first solo exhibition with EGG Gallery in 2018, viewers are able to see how Bai uses her brush to record light, time and life in the abstraction of colors, lines, and patterns. Bai who was born in the mid-fifties shows her love for painting since childhood. Although she is not good at words, she can express herself freely while she is painting. For her, painting is a kind of spiritual practice. In that process, the negative emotions in the common life are calmed down and relieved. The works have their own self-examination. Therefore, she is more willing to call her work as "Journal" which has her most true and prime vision and portrays the beauty that eventually settled after years' lives.

Say Yes Anniversary - Broken English Club aka Oliver Ho

Date: July 18 - 10 pm

Venue: Oil Club, Shenzhen

From the beginnings of Blueprint records, Oliver Ho has explored techno in its many different styles, from his early dark electronic records to the more organic percussive grooves on Meta records. All these ideas and sounds have been distilled down into the current project, Raudive. Those familiar with Oliver Ho's fearsome and often brutal futurist early EPs on Blueprint and his more recent avant techno/house Raudive material will be aware of his ability to inject a dark narrative into functional electronics. With Broken English Club, he delivers monotone vocals and shards of live instrumentation over stuttering beats and bleak synths. The blank-stared, pinpoint-focused electronics and layers of noise betray no wave and post punk influences, dragging together industrial experimentation and pitch-black techno.

China's Financial Innovation through History

Date: Aug 5 - 10:30 am

Venue: Yale Center, Beijing

Professor William Goetzmann will talk on China's financial innovation through history and his book Money Changes Everything. The book was one of Financial Times Best Economics Books of 2016.

He also demonstrates how the apparatus we associate with a modern economy stock markets, lines of credit, complex financial products, and international trade were repeatedly developed, forgotten, and reinvented over the course of human history. The language of the event will be English.
