City-themed exhibition series opens

    THE first leg of a city-themed exhibition series, “City: All Lives,” opened April 1 at Circle Art Center in Bao’an District.

    Through two activities: a forum titled “Social Transition and Governance: Conflicts in the Migration of Villagers to Cities” and the “Others” exhibition, “City: All Lives” explores in various artistic ways how Chinese cities have developed.

    As a product of social development, cities became the centers of business and service activities. However, urbanization in China was not a natural evolution of social progress. Society was sharply divided between cities and affiliated villages and then migration was strictly enforced to stop the dilapidation of villages, according to the organizer Circle Art Center.

    Curated by Wang Nanming, one of China’s top contemporary art critics, “City: All Lives” embraces social phenomena as a key force. Through the presentation of human ecology and natural ecology, “City: All Lives” tells of the dignity and significance of cities in modern society.

    In the “Social Transition and Governance: Conflicts in the Migration of Villagers to Cities” forum, six experts and scholars from different areas discussed the changes in Chinese urban and rural areas, how to present social relationships in art and how to define the connections between social relationships and art.

    Inspired by migrant workers in Shenzhen, artist Li Yifan uses quotidian objects as a reflection of urban villagers’ living conditions in his exhibition “Others.” Li conveys his thoughts by creatively showcasing objects such as leaflets, old furniture and heaps of stone, all of which are common in urban villages. “Here ‘Others’ is a metaphor for the fact that these migrant workers are often overlooked by society,” said Li.

    The second leg of the exhibition series, “City: Birth and Death,” will be held in July.

    Time: Until May 5

    Venue: 1/F, Circle Art Hotel, 1146 Bao’an Boulevard, Zone 44, Bao’an District (宝安44区宝安大道1146号圈子艺术酒店1楼)

    Metro: Line 5, Fanshen Station (翻身站), Exit A
