Zhao Junyuan is the planner of two art practice activities of children “Primitive Tribes—Constant Instrumental Performance” in the feature “Unsuitable-For-Children”. He will lead 7th grade students of Zhong Yuan Experimental School to present and perform their self-made musical instruments.
Guest speaker Ouyang Yingji, who participates in feature “exhibition on paper: gifts” in Art World June 2011, has presented the works created when he was young, and looks back to his experiences in adolescence and art study.
