An exhibition now on at the Shenzhen Museum of Contemporary Art and Urban Planning looks at the development of Chinese sculpture in recent decades.
The works on show examine how home-grown sculptors have explored a conceptual approach as they build closer contacts with the international art community and embrace more ideas from outside.
The exhibition also responds to a worldwide trend in which videos, computer programming and digital technology help in the creation of sculptures.
The exhibition, that runs through Feb. 23, is the first of a series called Forty Years of Sculpture, which looks back on Chinese sculpture since the reform and opening-up began in 1978.
