The logo of the biennale was unveiled at the conference. Designed by the team led by Professor Xiao Yong from the Design School of the Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA), the logo combines the image of mountains and water, signifying that the Wuhan Biennale will continue the cultural lineage of Wuhan as the birthplace of the story of "high mountains and flowing water" about the deep friendship between Zhong Ziqi and Yu Boya. The A-shape of the logo is also a reflection of the collision between traditional art and contemporary art, and of the exchange between Chinese art and international art in the biennale, according to the organizer of the event.
