Mission Statement

Beijing Street is an non-profit art exhibitions that strives to read two main goals. First to expose the marginalized talents and creativity of some of Beijing’s hip hop and street artists to other nations in attempts to show a much truer account of China then most mainstream art. The group will travel to New York City to put on live performances of music while visuals are produced on large canvases all though the exhibition. Admission costs and funds from auctioned art will help Beijing Streets reach its second goal of giving back to the streets. With many limitations of expression in Chinese culture, we plan on creating opportunities for the youth to gain empowerment, creativity and expression thought subaltern art.
