“ChiFra Art Exhibition” is a significant cultural event supported by Chinese and French governments to celebrate the 50th anniversary for the establishment of diplomatic relationship between these two countries. It will display about 200 pieces of artworks by 40 great contemporary artists from China and France, including oil paintings, sculptures and printmakings.
