Admire 15 public sculptures woven into the natural landscape of Talent Park in Nanshan District. The Forward — 2022 Shenzhen Bay Public Art Season takes sports as its theme, using sculptures to reflect the fever of public fitness in China in the post-Winter Olympics time. The organizers believe that public art is something that encompasses the culture of the city, powerfully transforms public space and encourages social cohesion.
The exhibition runs until Feb. 12, 2023.
