Tue Dec 11, 8pm; free entry. Xpats Bar & Grill. See event listing.

Tue, Dec 11: We Made God

Icelandic band We Made God has been touring for around 14 years now. Their atmospheric rock music reflects the icy and stormy land of their residence. Something about songs like ‘Oh Dae-Su’ and ‘Gizmo’ recall geography and landscape more than they describe emotions or people. This show is certainly worth catching. 

Tue Dec 11, 8.30pm; RMB90 presale, RMB120 at the door. B10 Live. See event listing. Tickets.

Wed, Dec 12: December Book Exchange


Still deciding what books to read over the festive period? The Book Exchange Library in Shuiwei should help you out! Their Wednesday evening event continues last month’s discussion about award-winning books. Swing by and check out the biggest expat library in Shenzhen, which will be open for checkouts and returns. 

Wed Dec 12, 7-9pm; free entry. Shuiwei Community Service Center. See event listing.

Tue-Sun, Dec 14-Feb 28: My Secret is a Garden

Growing up near a temple where prostitutes without families are buried, Nobuyoshi sees the art in desire, life and death, with his works revolving around female erotism, flowers and the cycle of life and death. With over 450 photobooks published since the 1960s, he is one of the most prolific and eminent, yet controversial, artists in Japan. Leave the kids at home for this one, as children under 16 are not allowed

Until Feb 28, 2019, 11am-7pm; RMB35-80. Art Cloud. See event listing. Tickets.
