The exhibition is a unique unit of “2010 Caochangdi Photospring - Arles in Beijing", focused on displaying the cutting-edge works of young artists. The exhibition covers four solo and six group exhibitions, 300 works by approximately 60 artists, displayed in nearly 5000 square meters space. The exhibitions include both photography and video works. All images are displayed without formal framing or matting, but rather in a very "lowfi“ way, directly mounted in the stark naked space. The exhibition does not constrain the artists with any so-called "proposed theme" or "assigned topic" and rejects all high-minded academic arguments.
The content of their works take many forms and each artist makes an individual stand, displaying personal aesthetic and attitude. Among those exhibited is a group of young artists making their first appearance, but there are also a number of mature artists showing their latest works. Shanghai's "Hai Bao in Beijing" collective is recommended by the Mummy Foundation, and takes on a group of young artists and the general public in the form of collective works to bring a unique show.
