桃浦大楼的背景资料: “桃浦大楼”是”未来的节日”的平行项目


“未来的节日”是上海艺术家群体自发组织的讨论活动. 开始于2011年2月,为期一年。
贯穿于这个时间段的是艺术家们和哲学教师(陆兴华)的公开讨论及对于艺术家工作室、艺术现场
的走访。这种持续的讨论不仅仅是艺术和哲学的结合,活动的发起者们强调:这不是以往我们已经习惯的学术主题或者经验思维下的惯性操作。它面向更多的艺术自省,更多面对意外,更多意见分歧,更多歧异,更多的未知,面对每天都是节日的今天,它更像是一个最后的节日,一种决绝的信念。


从7月至10月,上海桃浦艺术园区内的桃浦大楼将作为呈现这种信念的场所。当代艺术家、建筑师、诗人、音乐家、哲学教师等等将以各自的方式呈现自己的建构和彼此的影响,大大小小的展示和现场将在此发生。
7月3日特推出“未来的节日”的讨论文本第一册。

Background: TOP Events and Future Festival


“Future Festival” is an art activity initiated in February 2011 by a group of artists in Shanghai, that will last for one year.

The topic of “Future Festival” was inspired from French poet Mallarmé who said that the role of the artist is to prepare for future projects. This quotation allude to a certain reversion in contemporary art action, suggesting that participating artists turned from the act of criticizing and making experiences to a new attitude of bidding, gathering and mingling.

During this period, discussions between local artists and a philosophy professor (Lu Xinghua), as well as interviews in artists’ studio and exhibitions will be held. This continuous symposium is more than a simple combination between philosophy and art, the organizers insist on the fact that: it is neither a talk, nor an exhibition, neither an art project, nor one of those academic topics we were used to, an inertia processing in an experienced thinking. It responds to art introspection, surprises, conflicts of opinions, differences, and unknown. Everyday becomes a festival. It is actually more a final festival, a kind of decisive conviction.

From July to October, TOP Building in The Outstanding Park, Shanghai, will embody this conviction. Contemporary artists, architects, poets, musicians, philosophers, etc will present in their own way their practices through various projects.

On July 3rd, the first leaflet gathering “Future Festival” discussions will be distributed.
