Every exhibition of the tour is composed of photographs, videos, installations, and performances, in accompany with online interactions with the audience throughout the whole course. The First stop has been held in China, at Chongqing Changjiang Contemporary Art Museum, Chongqing, in June 2016.
In 2017, TanBo, together with belgian/Italian artist Sophie Saporosi, are setting up a new project"Venize Biennale 2017-Special program "TRANS-BORDERING-ART: Everyone’s 5 min Solo Exhibition". In brief, this special program is a group exhibition parallel to the 57th International Art Exhibition of Venice Biennale (13th of May – 26th of November 2017). Meanwhile it is also an entire artwork, which can be regarded as “relational art”, “socially engaged art”, or an “art intervention”. It is a "jury free" exhibition, which means that everyone who submits is selected .
