ZAO TANG Open Call 2021

September 2021

The curation, “Zao Tang” (bath house in Chinese), stems from an on-going exploration of the intersection between Asian identity and feminism, and the cultural charge of Asian bath houses as a ground for social exchange. The gallery not only serves as a platform for creatives of colour and their works to reach a wider community, but also as an open invitation for communities and cultural organisations to connect through art, host activities in this public room, and reclaim ownership of our streets. 

Sponsored by Arts Council England and Malin + Goetz. 

Collaborated with Local Collective. 



About Us

We are a London-and-Shanghai-based multidisciplinary art and curatorial practice retelling social stigmas through interactive films and space curation. We chose to reside in the in-between and recreate from the othered - the stigmatised - revealing and reinventing different versions of realities. We value a collaborative nature in our works, as we work closely with marginalised groups and always aim to provoke discussion with a wider audience across different fields.
