The one month exhibition is called "Infantization" or "Jelly's Times", as
organizers say these young artists were just like the jelly imported from
western countries in the 1980s.
After a few years' development, the taste of jelly changed, whereas the 1980s
artists were affected by a mixture of culture from the east and west.
Exhibition organizers say the artists are independent and a bit anti-social,
but also open-minded and somewhat selfish.
They hope through the exhibition they can find the lifestyle and creative
tendencies of these young artists, and help them foster a serious attitude
The exhibition showcases 350 works from 60 artists.
