Milei-RayDog, a cartoonist whose Ray Girls videos feature herself transforming into cartoon figures, has garnered more than half a million followers on short video sharing platform Douyin.

Along with the solo exhibitions, the curator said another must-see part of the fest will be the screenings of nearly 20 indie shorts, with 10 from the 2020 FIRST International Film Festival, an annual event showcasing talented young filmmakers.

There also will be five themed exhibits staged by contemporary galleries, such as the Urumqi-based Gaotai Gallery, and indie art brands such as Monday OFF, a self-publishing brand focusing on youth-related topics.

Like the Hangzhou fest, the Beijing event will host booths showcasing artworks and creative products from those featured brands. "Visitors can talk to the artists in person and take home some of their pieces that they find interesting," Wei said.
