The Three Kingdoms period (220-280AD) in Chinese history was a short and bloody era of warfare and political tactics that has intrigued history enthusiasts for centuries. The exhibition was held at the Tokyo National Museum in Japan last year, and has now arrived at the Nanshan Museum in Shenzhen. With more than 170 pieces of precious cultural relics provided by 36 museums around China, the exhibition presents a picture of the politics, economy, military, culture and life – 1,800 years ago.
Until Oct 14,10am-1pm, 2-5 pm, (closed Mondays), free entry. Nanshan Museum.

The waste items in this exhibition are all domestic trash (sterilized, of course) and items collected in Shenzhen over the past five months. Due to COVID-19, foreign artists couldn’t come to Shenzhen, so they sent their creation plans online and instructed exhibition staff to help prepare the artwork.
Until Nov 15: Piano Piano by Feng Shi Heng

This exhibition is based around the concept of the ‘slow city.’ The concept comes from the Slow Food movement, a lifestyle which has been promoted by an Italian non-profit organization to slow down the pace of urban life.
