Brian Chia featured in touring exhibition

33 artists from around the world were invited to design one of a kind sets of slip mats for a touring exhibition and book which would explore the way visual art and music hang together. The show was curated by Plus et Plus, and conceptualized in collaboration with The Reed Space.
