The exhibition is di­vided into two parts: China and Bri­tain. A to­tal of 116 paint­ings are on dis­play.

The Chi­nese sec­tion fea­tures 103 works short­listed for the 2018 John Moores Paint­ing Prize (China), in­clud­ing the award-win­ning work Run­ningonthinice by Chi­nese artist Zhong Xue­qing.

The Bri­tish sec­tion ex­hibits 13 works by Michael Simp­son, the 2016 Bri­tish Grand Prix win­ner, in­clud­ing his lat­est Squint Paint­ings se­ries and other works on pa­per.

The John Moores Paint­ing Prize was founded in 1957 in Bri­tain, and sub­mis­sions are judged in­de­pen­dently by a jury. Since its in­tro­duc­tion to China in 2010, the award has at­tracted more and more at­ten­tion from artists and the gen­eral pub­lic.

This year’s event in China set a new record in terms of the num­ber and qual­ity of sub­mis­sions: A to­tal of 3,319 en­trants from widely di­verse fields sub­mit­ted their works.
