A lack of critical art, just like in the other great cities

Critical art is not found in Beijing, just like in other great cities as London and Los Angeles.

Serious and etnical art would make the art in Beijing more interesting

Besides the artwork which commemorate great moments in communistic epic, there are no sculptures found relevant to other epics.

Lack of information

It’s hard to find the details about the artist and the backgrounds of the artwork, just like it is in Shanghai and Hong Kong.

Key-words of the projects in Beijing: ethnical, serious, critical, historical and humourous.

14 pieces of art are chosen from Berlin, Florence, Hong Kong, London, Los Angeles, Milan, New York, Prague, Shanghai and Venice.
