We are pleased to invite you to join Asia Society Young Professionals (ASYP) for an exciting night with Matthew Niederhauser, who will give a presentation on his exhibition: Sound Kapital: Beijing's Music Underground, currently on display at Govinda Gallery in Georgetown. The talk will delve into China's burgeoning creative industries and their connections to urban development, widespread adoption of new communication technologies, and the Chinese government's vision of a modern society. China is undergoing a period of unprecedented change that continues to allow more room for independent thought and individualistic expression.

After studying anthropology at Columbia University, Matthew Niederhauser split his time between the National Committee on US-China Relations and the International Center of Photography, before returning to Beijing as a fulltime freelance photographer. Over the past year, his work covering youth culture in China has appeared in the New Yorker, Time Magazine, The Washington Post, PDN, and the Guardian Weekly amongst others. While his nights are spent photographing Beijing's underground music scene, Niederhauser also works on a large-format, photo-documentary project entitled Visions of Modernity that investigates urban development and new architecture in China's swelling capital.

A selection of musicians, who were featured in Sound Kapital, will be in town and will be in attendance for a Q & A session following Matthew Niederhauser's presentation
