A Journey to Italy


On Sunday, June 23rd, we hosted a private wine tasting that provided a tour of Italy through an assortment of great wines carefully paired with foods. Almost fifty people tasted wines imported from Italy by our friends at Simply China.


Raymond Lemstra

At the packed-out opening of The NUT’s latest exhibition “IMAGINARY PEOPLE” on April 11th, we listened to the artist Raymond Lemstra deconstruct his work. Accompanied by many clips, sketches and short videos, the illustrator went through his design process, meditating on his influences and fantasies. His work is on display at The Nut from April 11-30 2013, marking Lemstra’s first solo show in China.

Raymond Lemstra is an artist/illustrator from the Netherlands who makes small meticulous drawings on paper with a strong focus on craft. He exhibits his work all over Europe and has been invited as an artist and lecturer to Pictoplasma, the world’s leading festival of contemporary character design and art in New York, Berlin and Paris.



We just finished a long weekend of screenings here at The Nut. As part of JUE Festival 2013 program we hosted Asian Cinema Week , a selection of shorts and feature movies by Asian directors. Plus the usual monthly Mini Film Fest Night.

The program was:

March 21st: Mini Film Fest Night. Theme: One-Take

March 22nd: “Four ways to die in my hometown”

March 23rd: “15Malaysia” and “OldDog”

March 24th: “ACW Shorts” and “Beautiful 2012”


Light Junkie

On March 14th 2013 The Nut presented a special audiovisual live act featuring Marula and Irrecoverables, and a multimedia installation, curated by GHC. LIGHT JUNKIE was part of  Jue | Music+Art 2013

We’ve reclaimed the studio now that the massive inflatable igloo – or house of light junkies – is gone. But thanks to all the people who came over for the live show, it was a lot of fun..



In January and February 2013 we paid homage to an artistic discipline that is essential to us: typography. The show was called TypeON, and included the works of More Tong, a Shanghainese designer and illustrator and Lai Chi Ling, a designer and typographer from Hong Kong. The Founder, China’s leading typography company, also contributed a portion of their substantial work in font design. We exhibited the works of Ying Yonghui, a font designer based in Shanghai, while Xponja, a Spanish Shanghai-based illustrator delivered a thrilling lecture on type design. Throughout the exhibition a special contribution came from The Nut’s audience through the Urban Typography project and, last but not least, we screened several short films and a feature celebrating typography as part of the Mini Film Fest Nights series.
