The theme and title of the Chinese Pavilion To See a World in a Grain of Sand comes from the translation of a Chinese idiom derived from the classic text by scholar and philosopher, Han Fei Zi•Shuo Lin Shang, signifying that trends in the future can be gleaned from the development from a tiny detail. Representing the realisation of a new value system the derivatives of which will continue to expand in the future, the exhibition will show Chinese society’s integration within the historical process into the multiplex, shifting and interdependent international order, demonstrate the vitality of China in her modernisation process and symbolise the differing charms of the Chinese way in a new context.
