Village is Art

As the Ancient Silk Road used to connect Italy with China in the past, so “Village is Art” aims to overpass the idea that East and West are two separated concepts today.
Through their lucid and spontaneous narration Davide Quadrio, the curator of the performances and installations, together with Art Director Zhou Jie and choreographer Xiao Ke, transport us inside YiOuLai (Suzhou village outlet located in Jiangsu Province of East China) during the preparation of this impressive project.
While portraying a growing and innovative China, “Village is Art” creates a connection between business and art and shows that internationalism is, indeed, the Key.
