Chinese born in the 1980s were the first generation to be born in the PRC's 'reform and opening' era. Today this generation of twentysomethings is beginning to reflect on what they've experienced and what lies ahead.
Beginning this Saturday, Bunny clothing store on Longxiang Jie will host "1981", an exhibition focused on the 'post-80s' generation in China and beyond. Sponsored by Shanghai's Zendai Museum of Modern Art and indie clothes label The Thing, this satellite exhibition - the main exhibition will be held in Shanghai - will run from Saturday through October 8.
Kunming curators of the exhibit are still collecting works to display, contact Bunny store at 5310223 for more information. Works can include toys from childhood, art and design works or music. Items from outside of China with a post-80s background are also welcome. In addition to the exhibit, Bunny will also hold a swap meet. If you have anything new or used that you would like to trade for, bring it to the venue to try your luck.
