Wanchai Visual Archive is packing out with a strong exhibition again. Marco du Mutiis explores the concept of controlling the transient and the ephemeral in particular with respect to time.
With it two participatory workshops are organised. We checked out the first one yesterday and it was excellent. The second one will be held next Saturday 12 August 2012, 3.00-6.00pm at Wanchai Visual Archive. It is completely free and not to be missed.

On top of Lizzie Bee's wishlist, you can find one of these...a mobile art centre!
Alumnos47 is a local arts nonprofit in New Mexico. Together with the architecture firm PRODUCTORA, they have converted a Freightliner M2 20K truck into a 215 square-foot mobile library with the capacity for 1,500 books on visual art and culture. In the truck they can also host a mix of workshops, seminars, and special events, relying on an interchangeable design to take advantage of every inch of space. The books are stacked on overhead trays to free up the main floor for events which allow a seamless transition from library to cultural center.
