The Beijing Palace Museum Cultural Relics Protection Foundation and Beijing Palace Museum Culture Promotion Association were established on March 29. As an important supporting project for the foundation in 2011, a large-scale exhibition of cultural relics from the Palace Museum will be held in the Louvre in France.

The Beijing Palace Museum Relics Protection Foundation and Beijing Palace Museum Culture Promotion Association are independent operating organizations run by eight entrepreneurs and sponsored by the National Palace Museum.

The Beijing Palace Museum Relics Protection Foundation is a non-public funding foundation. Its mission is to maintain and expand collections and buildings of the National Palace Museum; offer support for the academic research and public services of the National Palace Museum; and expand the domestic and international influence of the National Palace Museum. The start-up capital of the foundation reached 16 million yuan.

In addition to providing various special funds of assistance and awards, the foundation will also promote a series of cultural projects in 2011, including the "Royal Court Living Cultural Relics Exhibition of the Ming and Qing Dynasties," which will be held in the Louvre from September to November.

"This is the first time that Palace Museum cultural relics and Chinese cultural relics will be displayed in the Louvre. This exhibition is a milestone," said Li Ji, executive vice-president of the National Palace Museum.

The cultural relics represent royal lifestyle, such as emperor portraits and the throne of Qing emperors, which will be displayed during the exhibition.
