PRACTICE x Wind is the first publication to record all the activities that unfolded around PRACTICE from 2015 to 2017. It is mainly composed of informal images of artists who have passed through the artist-run space, where leisure and work, direction and chaos have become indistinguishable. A separate catalogue includes documentation of all the exhibitions that took place at PRACTICE. More than just an archival document, the book conceives itself as a rhizomatic propagation of the unruly yet generative energy that has earned PRACTICE its unique place. It also marks the turning point for PRACTICE's transition into the unknown.
Founded in 2015 by three artists, PRACTICE was located on the top floor of a Cantonese residential building in Chinatown, New York. It served as a shared artists’ studio and exhibition space that welcomed migratory friends passing through the city to live and work on their projects for free. In October 2017, with the departure of co-founder Bill He (Ho King Man), PRACTICE has temporarily relocated to Yonkers, while continuing to be guided and nurtured by Wang Xu and Cici Wu.
