In addition to the manuscripts of "The Minimalist Girls", the exhibition showcases several new media works, allowing visitors to enjoy and share the dynamic versions of the creations on their cell phones.

"It was in the 1990s that Minimalism became popular as fashion, which was also a kind of lifestyle and painting style,” Jin Cheng made a brief introduction to the concept of minimalism at the opening ceremony of the exhibition.
"What impresses me about this exhibition is the photo wall inspired by the 24 solar terms, which combines both the traditional Chinese elements and contemporary cartoon arts," said Ye Zhenghua, vice professor of the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts and vice secretary-general of the Guangdong Artists Association.
