From Director

The Open International Performance Art Festival began in 2000 (by curators, Chen Jin, Shu Yang and Zhu Ming), when the performance art merged to prosperity in China.
It has been held 8 times successfully with the purpose of establishing "free platform for International Performance Art"in Beijing, Xian, Chengdu and Changchun.
The artists involved include more than ten countries and areas with 300 artists.
Many participants take part in the planning with the spirit of independent,openness and freedom to express.
The art festival made great cultural impact and became a famous platform among international performance artists.
And we would like to introduce excellent international performance artists and show our performances to Chinese audience to enjoy them together.
