UCCA Seeks Musicians for the Exhibition “Paweł Althamer”

2014.6.1 - 2014.8.14

Paweł Althamer is a Polish sculptor, collaborative artist, and creator of installation and video art. For his first institutional exhibition in China, Althamer will chiefly present two of his iconic works which explore the relationship between individual identity, social relations, and the making of art: Draftsmen’s Congress and Venetians. Draftsmen’s Congress invites museum visitors to draw at will on the floor and walls of the exhibition space, creating an open-ended dialogue among participants in which communication takes place by interacting with and responding to each other’s drawn gestures.

The UCCA Public Programs Department is recruiting musicians for a special program held in conjunction with the exhibition “Paweł Althamer.” Participants will perform in the Draftsmen’s Congress hall on a Saturday or Sunday during the exhibition (2014.5.24 – 8.29).


1. No professional training necessary, but you must be passionate about musical performance.

2. Must be able to bring your own instrument.
