Inspired, he launched a series of studies and surveys, and in turn he created a large number of stunning works. From May 30, 2015 to October 7, 2015,the Shanghai Rockbund Art Museum will open a Chen Zhen one-person exhibition and focus on the artist’s most representative creations within this theme of internationalism, once again bringing us into the artist’s observation and reflection toward the city and the future.
