This year's exhibition inherited the spirit of the first one, making reference to undefined themes and the freedom of selecting the medium for images. Artists were free to participate and create autonomously, improvising and presenting their work within a specified time and space, thus highlighting diversity and uncertainty. This year's artist lineup included renowned experimental artists as well as emerging artists, both domestic and international. The exhibition carried on the theme of experimentation and creates the challenge of creation within a limited time frame.
