Salt Projects (Yuan Fuca, Han Xinyi)
The Salt Projects is a research-based curatorial studio founded by Yuan Fuca and Liya Han in 2016, Beijing. Combining theory and practice, Salt Projects understand research and curation as an open-ended activity, involving collaboration and inter-disciplinary approaches to art marking. Salt Projects' research space, a 17 square meters gallery, specifically focuses on time-based art pro-jects, events such as performance lectures, screenings and artist writing publishing.
