The International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) Spring Open Studios is a three-day exhibition of international contemporary art. The 36 artists and curators from 20 countries currently in residence present work in their studios. Open Studios invites the public to 36 “studio visits” to experience art in its place of origin and to share conversations with artists and curators from all over the world. During Open Studios, contemporary art practices in a studio setting will be available to visitors as well as through The Poplar Tree and Mirror, an exhibition of video selected from the research archives of Video Bureau and including work by Li Ming, Zhang Peili, Ma Qiusha, Zhou Tao and Huang Xiaopeng.

Since 2011, ISCP has hosted an institution-in-residence as part of Open Studios. This annual residency was initiated to support cultural exchange by bringing an international perspective into a local context. This year, ISCP has invited Video Bureau, a not-for-profit organization established in 2012 in Beijing and Guangzhou, that provides a platform to exhibit, organize and archive video art. During Open Studios and through May 23, Video Bureau will be in residence at ISCP. New York-based independent curator Howie Chen travelled to China to research Video Bureau’s archives, resulting in The Poplar Tree and Mirror. The video works included in this exhibition concern social causality in contemporary Chinese and global culture at large. Chains of events are set in motion everyday: a decision is made, an action performed, and the contingent effects are registered on others. How does one negotiate these effects, especially when transformative political and economic forces drive them?
