Welcome to the Community Forums.
Checking on the specification for the Type C port shows support for USB 3.1 Gen1 devices only and do not offer similar features of a thunderbolt connection like display property. This is mainly for data transfer.
Ideapad 520 does have a HDMI port on the side (page 6) for the same purpose instead.
