Curator Jin Yanan says that the exhibition stresses the dynamics of the artists, the viewers and the venue. He explains that in the exhibition's title, walking is a metaphor for the deep reflection of the artists and, by taking a walk through the venue, visitors can relive the artists' creative processes.

The exhibition takes place in Wuzhen's Rice Barn, a granary from the 1960s that was revamped and turned into an exhibition hall in 2017. It is among many of the town's old buildings that have been renovated into performing arts or exhibition venues.

"Hosting the exhibition at the Rice Barn has its special implications. First, we hope that art is a kind of spiritual nourishment. Second, the barn was used to store things essential to us, so it's closely related to daily life. The purpose of this art project is to reintegrate art with our everyday lives," Jin says.
