Exhibitions, movies, lectures, gifts and workshops. Art aficionados can enjoy all these at once from Oct 1-5 in Beijing’s 798 Art district.
That’s what the YES! Art Festival, a youth-oriented event, promises.
With “to express everything freely through art” as its mission statement, the festival will deliver festival-goers a variety of exhibitions, screenings, artist booths, workshops, and art talks, organizers say.
Nearly 100 young artists of various genres will bring their works, including zines, illustrations, ceramics and toys, to the M WOODS Art Museum.
20-odd youth-oriented brands and art institutes will show up at the five-day event, according to festival organizer Between Islands Contemporary Art, a Beijing-based creative art brand specializing in promoting fledgling artists as well as developing and managing crossover art projects.
