GMT+8:The Diaspora of Chinese Art and Design Students in London

23/07/2022 - 02/08/2022,
Chelsea Triangle Space,



GMT+8 is a group exhibition that focuses on the creative journey of Chinese art and design students in London. Criss-crossing the Eurasia of 8 time zones, it seeks to create a space for new understanding of cultural identity, and to celebrate the interrelationship between China and Britain during the era of globalisation.

All of the artworks reflect the diasporic experience of the students in significant ways, exploring a Chinese-British sensibility through material and immaterial forms. Although not a comprehensive storytelling of Chinese diaspora art, this exhibition aims to evoke a sense of mutual connection, to reflect upon the idea of identity and belonging.
