Urban China: Informal Cities
An exhibition that explores the dynamic and innovative content of Urban China.
Urban China: Informal Cities is an exhibition that explores the dynamic and innovative content of Urban China, the only magazine published in China devoted to issues of urbanism. The magazine’s global, cross-disciplinary network of correspondents and collaborators merge rigorous methods of data collection and analysis of rapidly developing cities in China with witty graphic representations of their findings. This installation will include a built environment of reclaimed construction materials; a massive wall graphic combining photographs, found images, numerical data, and maps; a Flash-based, user-navigable database of photographs; and a selected collection of past issues of Urban China magazine.
