Vision and Reflection: Photographs of China in the 19th Century

Date: Dec 22-30 - 10 am

Venue: Tsinghua University Art Museum

A collection of some of the oldest and rarest photographs of China, Vision and Reflection: Photographs of China in the 19th Century, is made up of 120 photographic specimens taken in the 19th century and have never been exhibited before in Beijing. The photographs were taken by both Chinese and international photographers and give a glimpse at what life in late Qing Dynasty Beijing was like for the subjects depicted as well as what it may have been like to wonder some of the city's historic sights at the time. The rare photographs are only a fraction of the New York-based private Stephan Loewentheil China Photography Collection, which in total includes 13,000 photographs that comprise some of the earliest known paper photographs of Beijing, Shanghai, and Hong Kong.

Australian three-piece electronica/indie pop band Safia hail from Canberra, an unlikely but then-burgeoning source of new music Down Under. Beginning life in 2012 and initially consisting of two bedroom producers, Ben Woolner (vocals/producer) and Michael Bell (drums/producer), the duo soon expanded to include the synth and guitar input of Harry Sayers to complete the trio. They jokingly described their sound as "Skrillex and James Blake making sweet, tender love".
