As early as when futurism, which pursues speed and praises efficiency and scientific and technological development, prevailed (1909-1939), some works reflected the anxiety and worry about the hidden dangers brought by science and technology and artificial intelligence; Some works represent the pursuit of practical modern design, emphasizing the concept of "people-oriented" and working hard for the dignity and happiness of the public; Other works simply depict the deep nature, subtle mathematics and mysterious disorder, which corresponds to the idea that nature itself is regarded as the source of meaning. The different attitudes contained in the works will create new ripples in the communication with the audience.

Note: This exhibition will close on the evening of March 31st.

"Portrait-The 10th Anniversary Special Exhibition of the Dragon Art Museum" will be extended to May 5th, where the audience can enjoy more than 300 portraits created by more than 200 domestic and foreign artists, including oil paintings, paper books, sculptures, photography, etc., covering more than 130 years since the end of 19th century.

These works depict both individuals and groups; There are not only works that show superb realistic skills, but also creations that show the inner world of characters in the trend of the times. They are not only a copy description of a specific individual’s face and appearance, but also a summary of a specific person’s identity. They are presented through the observation and techniques of artists in different times, and the artist’s viewing mode and expression form have a direct and profound impact on each portrait work.
