The "State of Things —— Exhibition of the Contemporary Art Exchange between China and Belgium" is planned jointly by the director of the National Art Museum of China Fan Di'an, the renowned Belgium artist Luc Tuymans and the renowned Chinese artist Ai Weiwei. The main purpose of the exhibition is to carry out a discussion of art between China and Belgium, which will center on how to make the contemporary art to avoid getting into the exotic or pure novelty-hunting mode, and focus on the academic value of the contemporary visual art as the product of the contemporary culture. The dialogue of the exhibition theme first starts between the important artists and the planners of the different cultures of the two countries. It selects the successful artists in the art concept and the methodology of China and Belgium to present the sameness and differences in the art creation of the two countries. The way and perspective of exhibition planning are unique in the history of exhibition. The exhibition of the "State of Things" will be held at the National Art Museum of China from May 1 to June 1, 2010 after its success at the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium under the framework of the Europalia Art Festival in October 2009. This is the academic renewal of the exhibition, and also reflects the friendship and progress of the two countries in the academic and cultural exchange. The "State of Things - Exhibition of the Contemporary Art Exchange between China and Belgium" is a large and comprehensive exchange activity of the contemporary art of China and Belgium, and also an academically pioneer exhibition for the contemporary art. The exhibition selects 25 Chinese artists and 24 Belgian artists, and includes about 120 works. It is a large cultural exchange program which is unique from the planning to the implementation.
