A special exhibition at the Today Art Museum, hosted by art authorities China Artists Association, demonstrates how accepted experimental art has become in recent years.

Beginning on Sunday, the exhibition titled The Section of Experimental Art for The 12th National Art Exhibition features artworks created over the past decade from different materials, such as giant installation works made from daily necessities like chairs and desks, or those which were not suitable for exhibition in the past.

Tan Ping, vice president of the China Central Academy of Fine Arts explained at the opening that this marks the very first time that a special exhibition has been held for experimental art, a new form of art that only appeared after China's opening-up policy.

"I hope this exhibition will be a highlight in the development of experimental art in China, and that in the future, this project will involve more artists," he said. The exhibition is set to run until September 8.
