This month is the sixth anniversary of pop-up art event ThisCityArt (TCA), started by Martin Barnes and Oak Taylor-Smith in 2009 in order to utilize Beijing’s public spaces.

TCA will celebrate by looking back, returning to the pedestrian underpass where its pop-up art exhibitions began six years ago and displaying their #InvisibleExhibition: A series of 50 graphic artworks which explore our relationship with smart phones and our tendency to be online all the time.

The exhibition will start at 8.30pm tomorrow March 19, and there will be free 京A beer, and an art giveaway. The art giveaway will work as follows: Be one of the first ten people to get your name on the artwork's name tag, and after 10.30pm you can take one of the designated pieces home as long as you take a selfie with artist Martin Barnes and repost the photo on WeChat.

TCA will announce the location of the anniversary exhibition 24 hours before the show via social media. To find out more, you can follow them on their WeChat: @创想如山 (chuang xiang ru shan).
