4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art and Liquid Architecture present the second edition of Club 4A, leaving the confines of the white cube and taking performance art back to the club.
Curated by Mathew Spisbah and Rainbow Chan, Club 4A will host an evening of adventurous sonic performance and audio visual art at Dynasty Karaoke, Chinatown. As part of collaborative project between the two organisations, this performance will showcase the avant-garde club sounds of headlining Chinese artist Rui Ho. Known for her work on Shanghai label Genome 6.66 MBP and her genre-defying live performances, RUI HO will make her Australian debut at Club 4A. With a practice that bridges modern club influences with traditional Chinese sounds, her music fuses the tension of heritage, identity and modernity in a globalised world.
Club 4A will also feature new collaborative works from interdisciplinary artists Rainbow Chan x Marcus Whale, live electronic improvisations from Del Lumanta x Milkffish, Corin's ruined and renewed permutations, the sensitive and brutal catharsis of ptwiggs, Yumgods deconstructed footwork techniques and the debut performance of wytchings.
Alongside these musicians, Club 4A presents new visual and 3D works from Hong Kong artist Harry Chan will create the LED backdrop for the evening, plus animated contributions by Sydney videos artists Kynan Tan and Craig Stubbs-Race.
