An art exhibition, titled "Context Action," which has revived historic moments and news events over the past decade via paintings, is underway at the Ke Art Museum in Qingpu District.

The exhibition held by artist Zhao Zhiwen, a member of the China Artists Association and a professor at Shanghai Publishing and Printing College, is comprised of four chapters.

In one of the chapters, paintings created based on news photos are exhibited together with newspapers, posing a strong contrast of the timeliness of news events and the lasting nature of artwork.
