Hello and welcome to this weekĄŻs In the Spotlight on China Radio International. IĄŻm your host Xiao Hua. Stepping into the hall of National Art Museum these days, visitors feel like entering a sci-fi world previously only encountered in movies and online games. In today's program, we'll take a tour at the new media art exhibition, Synthetic Times.

Also in the area of new media art, the one minutes world workshop has been held in Beijing to teach students to make short movies within 60 seconds. Time is limited, but the freedom to express oneself creatively is not. And lastly, weĄŻll enjoy some songs from China's male vocal quartet. Please stay with us.

                                             
New Media Exhibition

When the National Art Museum of China casts heavy floodlights on new-media arts installations, especially interactive ones, it's a sign that these works have officially blossomed from the alternative to the prevalent, if not the mainstream, in a country where tradition is fading fast.

 

The One Minutes World

What would you do with sixty seconds of complete freedom? The "One Minute Foundation" from Holland is inviting young video artists from around the world to make one minute movies. The foundation is currently holding the "World One Minutes" exhibition at the Beijing Today Art Museum, where two participating artists are on site organizing workshops with Chinese artists.



Melody

Male quartets usually include a first and second tenor, a baritone and a bass. Although vocal quartets are common throughout Western music, they are rare in the Chinese musical tradition. But in the year 2000, four enthusiastic male Chinese folk singers put together a vocal quartet to perform the music they love. They named the quartet "Lao Ni Che," which means "old muddy car."

That brings us to the end of this weeks In the Spotlight. Comments and suggestions are always welcomed. You can log onto our website at www.crienglish.com to find out more about the program.
