2nd Annual “No Boundaries” International Art Exhibition Successfully Closed

The 2nd Annual “No Boundaries” International Art Exhibition closed on August 31st, 2017. By then, the Organizing Committee’s work has successfully concluded. 

With the cooperation of 18 international art consultants and 42 volunteers in 8 months, the number of participants in “No Boundaries” has increased by 6 times, from 600 in the first exhibition to 3600 in the second one.

The topic of “No Boundaries” 2017— a grain of rice—has been disseminated relentlessly by art institutions and artists in many countries, leading millions of people to focus on world food shortage and environmental issues.

During two years, we have spread better ideas and planned better activities, moving forward to our mission step by step.
