Thanks for your interest in UNTITLEDdialogue, a series of cultural talks with Asian related artists, musicians, curators, independent film makers, designers, architects and other creative professionals in New York. Our seventh issue (November 11th, 16:00-19:00) will feature a special fundraising party: Something Old, Something New. Everyone is encouraged to bring one or more personal belongings (old or new) to enter our silent auction. A certain percentage of the proceeds will support the future programming of UNTITLEDdialogue.

"Something Old, Something New" is the first line of a traditional rhyme which details what a bride should wear at her wedding for good luck. "Something old" symbolizes continuity with the past, while "Something New" means optimism and hope for the new life. Initiated in May 2012, UNTITLEDdialogue has already launched six events. With your generous support, it is gradually growing as a cultural community that encourages cross-boundary communication. In the future, we plan to organize six more events to further understanding of creative expression rooted in Asian contexts. We host UNTITLEDdialogue: Something Old, Something New at this special occasion as gratitude as well as greeting.

In addition to the silent auction, there will also be a raffle fundraiser. Our former speakers, including multimedia artist Li Mu, visual artist Zhang Hongtu, video artist Na Yingyu, Sakuhachi musician Akihito Obama, writer & painter John Ransom Phillips and Jazz musician Le Zhang will each donate a piece of artwork, autographed book / catalogue or limited edition record. For every $5 you donate, you get another entry in the raffle fundraiser.

Ways to Participate:

Bring one or more personal belongings (old or new), each valued up to $50. We will help you to set a starting price and increase increment for each object.
