As a warm-up event to Art Beijing 2007, Volkswagen's Olympic Art Exhibition is scheduled to tour Shanghai, Beijing and Berlin starting from May 22nd.

The exhibition will showcase auto-related art works that center on the Beijing Olympics, created by Chinese artists Zhao Bandi and Ji Dachun.

Zhao Bandi came to public spotlight with performance art in which he and his team dressed in toy panda costumes and acted in ordinary daily situations.

For this exhibition, the artist took his Panda team to Shanghai's Volkswagen and shot a short video program featuring the life and work of auto workers of the factory. By such experiment, artist Zhao hopes his pandas performers can help bring life back to the "cool" auto making world.

While artist Ji Dachun, demonstrated his art talent by painting in five colors of the Olympic Rings on a Volkswagen car, hoping to give it a new life.

The exhibition will last six days at Shanghai business center Xintiandi.

As part of a biggest ever contemporary art scene, Art Beijing 2007 is due to show up at Beijing's Agriculture Exhibition Center from September 20th to 23rd.
