A group of Chinese contemporary artworks are now on display at the National Agricultural Exhibition Center in Beijing.

Running between Aug. 29 and 31, the exhibition titled "the Beijing Contemporary" will showcase a series of artworks created by artists below the age of 35.

Divided into five different sections, including the Future, the Energy and the Story, the exhibition aims to highlight the genre of the younger generation focusing on difference and diversity.

"Any generation would define them by their approach, although the artists born after 1985 may be less concerned with the grand notion of the epoch, yet they are undeniably living during a grand moment in history," Bao Dong, a curator in charge of the Story section wrote in his introduction.

Located next to the entrance, a timeline of the Beijing 798 Art Zone commemorates one of the most influential cradles of local contemporary art emerging from the abandoned manufacturing blocks.

Outside the exhibition hall are several containers where visitors are supposed to note the oblivious instruments which play significant roles in our lives.

The pictures of several elderly people displayed on the containers highlight a philanthropic campaign initiated by celebrated Chinese comedian Huang Bo who is greatly concerned with those suffering from Alzheimer's.

The exhibition also pays tribute to Pablo Picasso, one of the most significant artists in the history of contemporary art.
