In a speech at the opening ceremony of the exhibition, Zhang Muxing, charge d'affaires ad interim of the Chinese Embassy in Mongolia, said "through the lens language in the hands of Chinese and Mongolian photographers and the brushes in the hands of Mongolian primary and secondary school students, they jointly recorded and depicted this Olympic event that went down in history."
