Art Nova 100, an annual celebration launched 13 years ago to promote and support emerging artists, has returned to its regular venues near Beijing’s Wangfujing commercial area, offering a more diverse program this year.

Exhibitions are currently taking place at the Guardian Art Center and Longfu Plaza in Dongcheng district, as well as at the Rong Art space in Haidian district, showcasing recent works by artists and fostering connections within the historic city center and its surrounding university neighborhoods.

Each year, the exhibitions serve as a platform, spotlighting the innovative creations of young artists, while also providing opportunities for potential collectors and sponsors to engage with and support these burgeoning talents.
