Outfalls was selected as one of the British exhibitors in the First Biennial Sino-British Contemporary Art Exhibition in two venues in Yantai, China.
The exhibition brought together contemporary artists from China and the U.K whose work is engaged with issues of landscape and place.
Ten pairs of drawings and poems translated into Mandarin by Zheng Zhaomei were exhibited in two venues.
Harriet Tarlo and Judith Tucker were invited to take part in an academic seminar chaired by Wang Nanming, the Director of the Shanghai Himalayas Museum and to work with a primary school. A live performance of the poetry took place in the gallery space in collaboration with Zheng Zhaomei.
Judith Tucker gave a lecture at Yantai University in which she discussed Outfalls in the wider context of Landscape, Place and Environment in Contemporary British Art.
