The Anren Biennale consists of four exhibition units: Genealogical Rhetoric, Crisscross Streets, The Future that Can not be Returned, Sichuan Story, all of the four units tend to construct a new world of collision between Chinese and Western art. Genealogical Rhetoric is setting the experience of ancient town of Anren in China in modern time as the background, looks back the Chinese path of social development since the late Qing Dynasty again, and then discuss the historical origin of the contemporary art problems, speculates and looking forward to the future from an artistic perspective and style. The Crisscross Streets responded to the exhibition theme named “Today’s yesterday” which proposed by chief curator Lyu Peng.

The four exhibited units have deducted the interpretation of “Today’s yesterday”, told the legendary story of Anren.
