BYOBlanket, find a cozy spot on the green Biennale site, and soak in the visual spectacle of the fireworks alongside the cultural display of the Biennale.

BYORed Pocket
Pocket Fence[E58], February 9th – 25th 2010

Enliven the Pocket Fence [E58] by hanging your own red pockets, printed with your surname on it, to the Pocket Fence exhibit structure and create vibrant red spaces within the three semi-enclosed areas. The Chinese loves red, because red symbolizes vitality, happiness and good fortune whilst giving out red pockets has long been a CNY custom to bring best wishes. The participants are encouraged to write their own wishes on the back of the red pockets as well. The collection of red pockets with wishes from different families will enable the curatorial team to make records and map family connections.
