Beijing Underground: China's Alternative Music Scene

Beijing Underground: China's Alternative Music Scene

Flyer for Beijing Underground.

An exciting night with Matthew Niederhauser, who will give a presentation on his exhibition Sound Kapital: Beijing's Music Underground, currently on display at Govinda Gallery in Georgetown. The talk will delve into China's burgeoning creative industries and their connections to urban development, widespread adoption of new communication technologies, and the Chinese government's vision of a modern society. China is undergoing a period of unprecedented change that continues to allow more room for independent thought and individualistic expression.

A selection of musicians who are featured in Sound Kapital will be in attendance for a Q & A session following Matthew Niederhauser's presentation.
