Tiejun Li, LABA Overseas Art Advisor, was born in Daqing, Heilongjiang Province in 1962. As a accomplished artist, he was invited to be a jury member and speaker at the Triennale Milano in Italy. There is a featured project between China and Italy called a "Sustainable Future". The "Sustainable Future" project is part of a global context in which sustainability has become an absolute priority. The artworks and design projects created as part of this competition will not only help raise public awareness of crucial issues such as climate change and resource conservation, but to influence sustainable policies and practices. The project "Sustainable Future" is much more than a simple art competition. It is an initiative that aims to create a lasting impact on new generations, stimulating deep reflections and promoting concrete actions for a more sustainable world. Through exhibitions, lectures and international collaborations, this project demonstrates how art and design can play a crucial role in shaping a better future.

In addition to the competition and exhibitions, the project includes further initiatives to consolidate Sino-Italian cultural collaboration. In 2025, Triennale Milano will present one of its exhibitions in China and will organize a series of lectures in collaboration with various Chinese universities. These events, curated by figures such as Nina Bassoli, Damiano Gullì and Marco Sammicheli, will offer food for thought and insights on the issues of sustainability and contemporary design.

Milan Triennial in Italy

The event will culminate with the international exhibition at Triennale Milano, scheduled for December 2024, which will present the 50 most relevant works selected from those exhibited in Chinese national exhibitions. Each stage of this journey will offer participants multiple opportunities for recognition and visibility, allowing artists to stand out both nationally and internationally. In addition to the competition and the exhibitions, this collaborative project involves Triennale Milano presenting one of its exhibitions in China in 2025 and organizing a series of lectures, curated by Nina Bassoli, Damiano Gullì, Marco Sammicheli, Tiejun Li and others.
