The exhibition Fantastic Illusions is part of Shanghai eArts Festival2009, as well as one of the programs of 2009 Europalia.China.
In the exhibition Fantastic Illusions,seven Belgian and seven Chinese artists build illusory spaces for the visitor. With the two curators, the exhibition attempts to discuss the relations between the "virtual reality" technology and media art development as well as how they are interacted to each other.
A continual interaction between the space of the artist and that of the spectator is the recurring theme of the exhibition. The artists work with various media such as painting, video, digital image, and installations.
