D-Lab commenced in November 2004 with a series of workshops and presentations with local and international art practitioners. As the site of The Second Guangzhou Triennial, the Pearl River Delta (PRD) embodies an inventive negotiation between the local and the global. Thus, Delta Lab, or D-Lab is created to investigate the potentials of contemporary art under such a context. It is an interdisciplinary platform that bridges art, architecture, urban study, and cultural activism.

This publication provides a record of the proceedings. Biographies of the participants are included. Non-Asian participants include Rem Koolhass/OMA (Rotterdam), Doug Aitken (Los Angeles), MULTIPLICITY presented by Joseph Grima (Milan) and Evelyne Jouanno (Paris).
