This exhibition features small works whose size is no larger than 120 centimeters. Small-size works are not artists’ casual works but often their finest works. Liu Tao, the curator of this exhibition, said that small works are more manageable in terms of creative content, so artists can feel more relaxed and happy during the creative process compared to large-scale works. 

Moreover, small pieces are more suitable for decorating work and living spaces than large ones. It encapsulates the artists’ progress in creative ideas, bearing their unique visual expressions and cultural attitudes, but it is also the starting point of their thought and creation.

“Although the event focuses on the exhibition itself, it also has the function of art trading, aiming at specific social needs such as art collection and consumption,” said Liu Tao.

“We hope to join hands with more like-minded friends to develop this plan into an art consumption IP with Chongqing characteristics within 3 to 5 years, and then to build Chongqing as a heaven for art fairs,” he added.

Since 2018, the “Chongqing Contemporary Small Works Collection Promotion Plan” has been held four times. The exhibition aims to promote art to the public and cultivate the Chongqing art consumer market.
