This year’s sudden epidemic seems to have suspended the world and the class of 2020 as well. However, the sixth session of our annual project “Choice of the Class of 2020” will be held as scheduled.
When works of art are displayed in an open, diverse and day-to-day place, art does not just exist in ivory tower, but is embedded in daily consumer spaces and becomes a part of life. Art and reality, artists and audiences examine and interact with each other in a symmetrical energy relationship. In the status transformation from “college students” to “independent artists”, young artists feel others, examine themselves and directly present the power of their works. This exhibition showcases the exploration of art by young artists who are at the turning point of their artistic life, their confusion, thinking and comprehension of existence, the contemporary and the future, and their breakthrough. It also offers a vague glimpse of the future of art.
