Exhibition

Curated by Liu Ding, Carol Yinghua Lu and Su Wei, the 7th Shenzhen Sculpture Biennale is a research-based exhibition consisting of various components: Unexpected Encounters, an examination of individual practices in China from 1989 to 2000; What You See is What I See, a grouping of recent works made by Chinese artists and artists from all over the world; Public Projects, four special commissions for public venues. In the exhibition, artworks made from 1989 to 2000 in China in Unexpected Encounters and recent works by Chinese and international artists in What You See is What I See will intermingle with each other in the exhibition rather than being presented in two sections. The exhibition opens on May 12, 2012.

Opening Hours: Tuesday to Sunday, 10:00-17:30 hrs (Monday closed), Admission Free.
