Kaos: Art in the Underground, persistently one of the coolest monthly creative events in Shanghai, is going down again on Friday August 27.
Purposefully reminiscent of basement shows in the organizer's art school college town, Kaos is hosted at C's, one of Shanghai's last and most reliable sources for grimy underground energy. Expect a fusion of local music with art, zines, poetry, fashion, tattoos, and everything DIY. You can see art, buy art, and even make art with your fellow Shanghai subcultures, or just rave the night away in one of the two dance floors they're opening up for the occasion. In accordance with their all-welcoming, all-included mission statement there are no vendor fees or cover charges.
The vendors will include PPAR Non-profit, Xaferwear, Rachel poems and prints, Chris handmade leathers, ZAZA VERT, Jodie's bracelets and thrift, Carolina's oil paintings, Clara Non-profit DIY, Jeni's illustrations, Davide's figures and illustrations and Plusminus. Once again, that's Friday, August 27, doors open at 8 pm, totally free baby!
Venue: C's. 685 Dingxi Lu, near Yanan Xi Lu, Changning District / 定西路685号, 近延安西路
Metro: 15 minutes walk from West Yan'An Rd. subway station
