0705 What is contemporary art

This picture was taken in Pingyao in 2009. I arrived in the small ancient town on the eve of the inauguration of a photography festival. The city was packed with photographers and the exhibitions were being prepared. I decided to play photographer myself and captured the moment in which this old men, both curious and perplexed, approached this photo collage.

  1. This is a very interesting picture, not pointing to the unusual or the “esotic” part of China, but showing the different sides of contemporary chinese art and its distance from the “laobaixing”. I rellay like it!

  2. It really shows the entering of the contemporary in everyday life. I like it very much!

  3. Funny photo (and, in front of the picture on the wall, I would have probably had the same approach of the old man).
