CHARBON hosts multimedia art extravaganza

Aberdeen-based art venue CHARBON will celebrate its first anniversary on Saturday (24 September) with the opening of a multimedia exhibit featuring live performances, photography, drawings and stage plays by artists from France and Hong Kong.

The exhibit, named translatio (Latin for “transmission”), pays homage to late French author and photographer Edouard Levé’s legacy by exploring themes of translation and impact. The event will coincide with the annual South Island Art Day in Wong Chuk Hang area.

With a full itinerary of events beginning at noon Saturday, activities will include meet-and-greets with the curator, Lalie Choffel; an art space tour by South Island Cultural District; an “artist sharing” session with Mark Chung; and other performances. Stage plays based on Levé’s last novel, “Suicide,” will be performed during the exhibition period.

Visitors can check out this exhibit Wednesday through Saturday from now until 5 November.
