FAT Music Festival
October 13 - 15, 2017
Curated by M WOODS, FAT Music Festival will present aural exhibitions by four of the most pioneering livehouses in the city: School, Temple, DDC, and fRUITYSPACE. Through this collaboration, M WOODS seeks to present a multi-sensory experience, featuring live music alongside video, projection, and visual art. Join us to break down the barriers between art exhibitions and musical performances, and to foster new ideas about what a museum can do for a city and its cultural life.
Music in the Museum June 10, 2017
To mark the end of our spring show Cristof Yvoré: An Ode, M WOODS hosts Beijing legends Josh Feola (of pangbianr, Sally Can’t Dance, and Charm), Yan Yulong (Chui Wan), and Zhang Shouwang (Carsick Cars, White+) for a day of musical experimentation. From 1PM to late, the galleries are given to the interplay of senses, with our guests sharing sounds new and old in a site specific performance inspired and curated to accompany the exhibition.
While his entire creative output focuses on quiet motifs—the corners of rooms, vases, bouquets of flowers—Yvoré’s taste in music was distinctly loud, with an eclectic studio soundtrack including Suicide, Tuxedo Moon, Bauhaus, Joy Division, Metal Urbain, Hasil Adkins, Motörhead, Autechre, and many others that work in genres as distinct as heavy metal, New Wave, No Wave, drone, post-punk, minimal, and experimental and ambient electronica.
While the musicians swap sets, visitors are welcomed to explore the show with an additional dimension, reveling in the mutual influences of visual and musical disciplines recognized since times immemorial.

A mobile space offering UBER users a preview experience of the exhibition launches in July 2016. M WOODS Co-founder Michael Xufu Huang said of the partnership, “M WOODS is a young organization, excited by the future and all that is happening to prepare us for it, in terms of art, design, technology, and digital culture. It is thrilling for us to partner with UBER, a brand we believe is paving the way towards the future of transport around the world. As the opening of our Andy Warhol summer exhibition draws nearer, this collaboration gives us an opportunity to reflect on the influence of technology on culture, whether in Warhol’s factory in the 1960s or within digital applications in Beijing today.”
