On the occasion of the French Presidential visit to China, the French and Chinese institutions agreed on working together to stage a series of 10 major exhibitions over five years featuring works from Picasso and Giacometti. This long-term art collaboration will encourage an in-depth exchange

and development within the cultural and creative industries between China and France. Doors accompanies both French institutions in their relation with Beijing 798 Creative Industry Investment Co, Ltd.

“People-to-people exchanges are very important for such two cultural giants… Such a rich and open platform will set up a good example for cultural exchanges in Europe and even the world.”
