Art exhibition Walking the Environment opened in Wuzhen, Zhejiang province, on July 22 and runs until Dec 31.

Co-hosted by Cultural Wuzhen Co Ltd and the School of Sculpture and Public Art from China Academy of Art, the exhibition comprises three main sections, displaying 65 works from 53 artists, all of whom are students or alumni of the school.

The venue is Wuzhen's Rice Barn, a granary from the 1960s that was renovated into an exhibition hall in 2017.

"One of the reasons for hosting the exhibition at the Rice Barn is that we think art is a kind of nourishment. The barn is also used to store things essential to us, so it's closely related to daily life. The aim is to integrate art with our everyday life," curator Jin Yanan says.

Along with the exhibition, the two organizations also cofounded the CAA Armory Wuzhen, an institution incorporating culture, art and tourism, that will host art events and boost exchanges among art colleges.
