'The 1st Dimensions International Live Art Festival in Chongqing'
（Design By Jing He）
The Festival Is Connected
With Following Numbers
DAC has been devoted to exploring the possibilities of making connection with broader fields in modern China since founded. We leverage the Art Festival to practice and discuss in urban and rural fields, using Return: Reflection on Modernity and Development of Locality as main theme to stretch from art language field to society space field.
The main content of the Festival consists of Urban and Rural fields, the two most important society fields we can not ignore in modern China.

Chongqing boasts great mountains and big rivers with strong contrast of the mixture of urban and rural spaces. We introduce 20 artists into the relic of a giant abandoned factory in the Urban field from the industrial times to inspire creation and engage people living around to take part in and establish dialogue between art and public.

We introduce many a natural site in the Rural field with local residents to inspire creation and exchange the status quo of Chinese rural lives and cultures in the process of modernization.
During this art festival, we have formed an academic group of seven, which will be sent to the spot of our festival and discuss about the academic theme and everything happens on the spot!
