“The Black Box” is an open art lab for public media experiment and also a public art project in the sense that it has wide social involvement and participation. Since July 2011, it had held 19 events at “Future Festival” and almost 30 events in Himalayas Art Museum. “The Black Box” was an interactive component in Shanghai Biennale 2012 as an independent art project. “The Black Box Database” is now settled in ShanghART Taopu since June 2013. The videos on display are from various live events during Shanghai Biennale, emphasising the interactive dynamic between the performers and the audience including experimental music, sonic and sound art, representational narrative theatre, one to one performance, duration performance, installations (machine or objects performance) and other un-categorised live events. Meanwhile the call for performers in “The Black Box” is still open. Welcome to ShanghART Taopu for visiting and experiencing.
