The exhibition "A World in Materials — Between Material Art and Scientific Images", co-hosted by Ningbo Museum of Art and Ningbo Institute of Materials Technology & Engineering, Chinese Academy of Sciences, is a dialogue between art and science. It exhibits comprehensive material paintings collected by NMA and award-winning microscopic photographs from the latest five Ningbo Institute of Materials Technology & Engineering Electron Microscopic Photograph Competitions. The life of materials is shown through four sections: Growth of Materials, Blend of Materials, Field of Materials, and Beyond the Materials. This exhibition tours the audience in different routes of materials in art and science. The immersive display draws the audience into a selfless state where "they observe the world with materials and then are unable to distinguish between themselves and the materials."
