On Thursday, the National Art Museum of China (NAMOC) hosted a major forum, Uniqueness and Convergence: Forum of BRICS Alliance of Art Museums and Galleries, which brought together the directors of national art museums and galleries from the five countries to discuss the current and future development of BRICS art.
Lasting two days, the forum aimed to promote mutual understanding through cultural and artistic exchanges among BRICS countries.
Keeping with the spirit of the forum, the Special Exhibition of BRICS Alliance of Art Museums and Galleries kicked off the next day. Scheduled to come to an end on Sunday, the exhibition displays the representative works of art from BRICS countries, making it without a doubt a major cultural feast for visitors.
Just few hours after the opening of the new exhibition, the hall was completely packed. Among them was Adwaita Garanayak, the director general of the National Gallery of Modern Art (NGMA) in India, who had taken the time to walk around during a short break from the forum.
The first work to catch Adwaita's eye was a two-meter tall group photo in the center of the exhibition hall. In the photo, the five representatives of major BRICS art institutions stand together holding hands. Seeing himself in the life-size photo, Adwaita kindly asked others to take a photo as he posed in front of himself.
