A new exhibition of video art from the Musée d'Art Moderne de Paris kicked off at the Red Brick Art Museum, in Beijing on Friday.

As a major project of the 16th Croisements Festival, the annual China-France cultural event - the Video at Large: Intimacy exhibition, co-curated by Odile Burluraux and Jessica Castex, was co-organized by the Paris Musées, the Paris Museum of Modern Art and the Embassy of France in China with the support of the Institut Français. 

According to Yan Shijie, the Red Brick Art Museum's curator, it is a rare opportunity to "present such an exhibition that turns space into a tunnel to travel to old times." 

The exhibition features 16 works, many of which were winners at the Venice Biennale, that tackle the theme of intimacy from different perspectives. 

Based on its academic research of contemporary art, the museum hopes the exhibition can facilitate the exploration of how visitors will perceive the narrative on intimacy through videos and installations in an immersive space.

The exhibition is set to run until July 3.
