This teahouse discussion will bring together the two artists groups, Channel_A and p-10 that Castlefield Gallery has invited to for the Asia Triennial Manchester 08. They will discuss their contribution to ATM08 in light of the cultural, political and social 'climate' in which they exist, operate, respond to, engage with and 'protest' against.
Castlefield Gallery is hosting the central teahouse hub in the Upper Gallery for the duration of ATM08. Visitors will be able to drink tea brought to Manchester by the artists showing at the various ATM08 venues across Manchester thereby representing Mainland China, Hong Kong, India, Korea, Singapore and Taiwan. There will also be a travelling Teahouse Discussion series, including talks, panel discussions and events hosted in a network of temporary sites throughout Manchester. Please see the ATM08 website for updates on venues, times and speakers.
