In the context of europalia.china, MuHKA will be presenting a key exhibition in the development of contemporary Chinese art, which it has acquired in its totality for its collection.

The Useful Life exhibition comprises important work by three leading Chinese artists and was created in the ShanghART Gallery at the Shanghai Biennale in 2000. It was during this Biennale that for the first time artists were given hope of more openness from the government and also the first time that foreign artists were allowed to participate.

The MuHKA’s intention in acquiring and showing this exhibition is to spotlight this crucial moment.
