Sheng Project is a joint curatorial project between the Long March Project and Institute of Contemporary Art and Social Thought in China Academy of Art. Launched in 2015 as a longue durée enquiry into the complexity of its subject, the project takes Zheng Shengtian (Sheng), an eminent pioneer in Chinese contemporary art, his life and art career more than seven decades, as the subject of research. By scrutinizing his encounters in art and life experiences for more than a half century, it attempts to reactivate our sense and perception of Chinese art and society in the Revolution and post-Revolution era.

CAN BURY THE AVANT – GARDE!
As part of the Dutch Electronic Art Festival, organizer V2 Center for Unstable Media (Rotterdam), conducted a series called the ‘Evenings of …’ to which invited special guest curators and artists to design ‘a la carte’ events at which they explore the backgrounds and inner workings of their specific practice. The Long March Project was invited to ‘design’ an evening event, partly as a way of exploring aspects of its work which normally does not have an opportunity to be dealt with publicly, and partly as a way to give an opportunity to bring together different conceptual strands of interests.
