An exhibition featuring works by 94 artists from 24 countries will open on May 18 at the Ocean Flower Island Museum in Danzhou, Hainan province, to offer tourists a visual feast.

The show, titled The Tide of the Century, includes four sections, each of which centers on different subjects. It features many established contemporary artists from across the world, such as Marc Quinn, Xu Bing, Zhang Xiaogang, Tatsuo Miyajima and Leandro Erlich.

Greece, the guest-of-honor country at the exhibition, will organize a section to feature important works by 34 Greek artists, providing a review of the country's contemporary art from 1970 to 2020.

The show is also a debut exhibition for the newly opened museum located at Haihua Island, also called Ocean Sea Island, a man-made island in western Hainan province. Shaped like a petal, the artificial island was built to boost tourism with amusement parks, hotels, shopping malls and exhibition centers.

The Ocean Flower Island Museum is made of eight buildings. Besides the show displaying 176 pieces of art, a permanent show in one building of the museum will exhibit more than 400 works by artists from China and the Netherlands.
