<Tale of Two Cities> is a continuing silkscreen exhibition series initiated by IdleBeats since 2015. Each exhibition composes the latest works of two studios – IdleBeats and one from another city around the world. Persistence, consistency, innovation and the free expression of ones own root culture are the threads common to all.
The serial nature of the exhibitions focuses on hand print making medium and cultural exchange through the eyes and hands of a range of emerging print makers worldwide. After first Tale Of Two Cities featuring silk-screen pioneer FrenchFourch from Paris with great success, IdleBeats is looking into South East Asia in 2016, inviting Sticky Fingers Art Print Cambodia to keep writing the second chapter of the two-city tale.
