Nocturnal Biennial
unrealized proposal

The citywide Flower Expo overlaps with TB10 during the final week of the exhibition. In reaction to increased marketing pressure on the biennial, Jao proposed shu ing down TB10 for that week, to open only at night—during the times that the Flower Expo is closed. A nocturnal biennial, antagonistic and yet beautiful, to be accompanied by a series of nocturnal events and activities. Unfortunately, the enthusiasm of the TB10 curators failed to convince the museum administration of the feasibility and relevance of the project. In other words, Jao's project was vetoed.
