With the continuous development and progress of China, social ecology is becoming more and more complex. 1.3 Billion people, they all have dreams of their own. They are more conscious then ever about their dream and dream of their society as a whole. Like a crop, any good harvest needs good weather condition. This exhibition is explicitly that good weather condition.As Wittgenstein put it, the more we understand our environments and surroundings, the more we could understand ourselves. Personal feeling and experience of our artists are the main source of inspiration of their work in this exhibition. Being presence in the art exhibition will definitely provide us with the kind of visual and non-visual experience that could never be obtained from our books or internet. This is the Essence of this exhibition.
The idea of the exhibition was inspired by the DongFeng Magazine which published a special edition back in 1933 revealing the dreams of the then 142 top scholars of China.
86 years later, as we stand here today, revisiting the same topic, we are displaying the thinking, feeling and vision of a bunch of our modern contemporary artists to you – a new era, a new dimension, a new perspective.
