Tackling bias and prejudice, females increasingly demand a greater presence, reports Deng Zhangyu.
In Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen's play A Doll's House, the heroine Nora slams the door of the house as she leaves her family and declares her independence, after becoming disillusioned with her husband.
Nobody knows what happens after Nora's departure. Future Exodus, an exhibition focusing on works by female artists in Changjiang Art Museum in Taiyuan, Shanxi province, tries to explore an answer through artistic expression.
Centered on the works of 12 Chinese artists, all women, the ongoing show displays paintings, sculptures, installations, videos, photos and multimedia artworks, which, in the eyes of the curator Zhu Yujie, is a kind of artistic exploration to find the answer to what happens after an "exodus".
