ASPARTIME is an open artist group made up of Qu Xiao and Liu Fengya. In 2011, they both received their MFA from Chelsea School of Art, University of the Arts, London, and returned to China in the same year. In early 2012, they founded Aspartime to explore whether contemporary art can exist more independently and freely.
