The New Normal: China, Art and 2017
As part of the large group exhibition to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the founding of the UCCA, this show features works by 23 contemporary foreign and Chinese artists who focus on China in the context of globalization, probing how to cope with the fragile, turbulent and unpredictable world situation. The exhibition was designed to provide an independent space for each artist to create a distinctive yet echoing motif. Accompanying the exhibition is a series of seminars, dialogues, concerts, and dance performances, all themed around art, science and technology, politics and economics, literature and daily life, to help the audience better grasp the themes of the exhibition and become part of the campaign.
