Call for One-Minute Video Work


"Attitude-60 Seconds"-One Minute Video Exhibition

The Spring Festival of 2020 is an indescribable day. China is going through an unprecedented test. Due to the large-scale spread of new coronaviruses, Wuhan has announced that it will be closed for 17 days. Disaster, Beijing 2102 Art Center is soliciting 100 one-minute video works.

But disaster may not necessarily be a bad thing. When things go well, love, integrity, and responsibility between people are the icing on the cake. When the disaster comes, wisdom and virtue become necessities, which affect everyone's life and death. Disasters are tragic and tragic, but only disasters are best qualified to prove the value of good things.


Beijing 2102 Art Center is an organization dedicated to the promotion of Chinese contemporary art and international cultural exchanges. Since its establishment, it has conducted exchange exhibitions in nearly 20 countries and has cooperated with 30 foreign art institutions many times.

The city center is temporarily transformed into a huge outdoor art arena creating unconventional encounters between the art and the audience. Participating artists are working outside the traditional frames with an opportunity to work big, outdoors and temporary. The exhibition invites a broad and curious audience to experience the art without an admission fee and regardless if they are acquainted with art or not.

We are searching for visual artists in all disciplines to apply with artworks that can be placed in the public space. We want a diversity of artworks that can challenge or transform the city with different conformations and concepts.
