The Beijing exhibition will be divided into three parts to display the exhibits that have been exhibited in Milan. The first part focuses on the exhibits that run through time and space and the theme of ‘time and space travel’; the second part is the theme of ‘measure time’; The transitional space describes the concept of time and provides the foundation for various small scenes or small theaters, where the exhibits are interconnected. There is also an interactive public area at the end of the exhibition hall, where visitors can leave their own experiences and traces in the long river.

The exhibits have a wide range of exhibits, including original works, installations, design works, artworks, films, etc., which are specially designed for the venue, all from the hands of international artists and designers, in order to answer several deep-rooted questions: ‘ How is time measured? ‘,’ How to express the passage of time? ‘,’ How to feel the existence of time? ‘And so on. All exhibits are presented with the theme of passage of time, evolution of time, and change of objects.

During the exhibition, the visit route is divided into two distinct modes, which are from the normal entrance and the express entrance. The concept of express is derived from the airport experience. It is an express way. Although visitors can move forward quickly in the exhibition, they can only appreciate some of the exhibits and cannot enjoy the entire exhibition. Modern people constantly compete with time in order to catch up with all the demands of society. The setting of this express line is itself a true portrayal of time in the hearts of modern people.
