BEIJING (Agencies): In Book of Fan Shengzhi, the oldest agriculture book written around first century BC, Fan Shengzhi, the author and agronomist, said that “the essence of cultivation is to catch up with the right moment… After the start of spring, as the land thaws, the chi energy rises from the Earth and begins to flow, and the soil loosens for the first time”.

The message of anticipation, unity of people and Earth delivered in the book have inspired a cross-cultural exhibition, Bon Moment, at the Red Brick Art Museum in Beijing where the works of 13 Chinese and French contemporary artists are on show to exchange views on shared topics, including the relation between men and Earth, the unknown, loneliness and death.

The exhibition was unveiled to open the 17th edition of Festival Croisements by the visiting French President Emmanuel Macron, who later toured Bon Moment and several other exhibitions at the museum, and communicated with featured artists at the shows.
This year, Festival Croisements, a full-fledged cross-cultural program in China, will include some 65 shows, performances and events held in more than 20 cities across the country, running from April to July.
Red Brick Art Museum has been showing contemporary works of French artists and those living in France, to introduce their home audience to the forefront of French art. Its founder Yan Shijie was awarded the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres (Orders of Arts and Letters) by the French government in 2019, at the opening of the 14th Festival Croisements.
