Spring is Coming 2016-Fukubukuro
   
  

     SanShang  Contemporary  Art Museum’s  wider,  annual show Spring Is Coming (春天来了),  which  takes  place  after  Chinese  New  Year  as  a  communal  celebration  of  the  arts.   The  exhibition,  scheduled  to  open  Saturday  5  March  2015 ,  is  throwing  out  an  open invitation to artists worldwide to join. Whether this is your first exhibition or 100th, the project does not care for experience or establishment; it simply requests diverse artistic responses from across the globe for museum visitors — and potential art collectors — to receive.

   


Back by popular demand after successful exhibitions in previous years,
and focusing on the charm of opening an unexpected gift, 2016’s exhibition
of Fu Dai will be based entirely on artworks sent through the post. Inspired
 by the Japanese tradition of New Year shopping, a cultural custom known as
fukubukuro (translation, again: lucky bag), where merchants sell mystery grab
bags to hopeful shoppers, we remodels this idea of mystery to rebrand works
of art as gifts.


We encourages absolute creativity; there are no rules regarding the
content of submissions other than that it must be able to be sent
through the mail. It could be a drawing, a scribble, a letter, or
 a can of your local air or dirt — as you must be aware of the
pollution here in China. A signature on the package must be included
(ideally on the courier’s sticker), and the exterior of the package
can be decorated however you see fit — again, playing into the themes of
 artistic consumerism in order to attract a buyer who doesn’t know what
 the lucky bag, or parcel, contains.The Fu Dai will be sold to buyers at
the exhibition for 100 Chinese Yuan, roughly equivalent to £10 or $15,
and this money will return to you as the artist; although we offer the
choice to donate it to the SanShang Contemporary Art Museum, which remains
the only non-profit contemporary art space in Hangzhou.
