‘Silk Road in Colors’ – New Perspective of Chinese Painters
On December 18, Chinese Embassy in Georgia, Georgian Ministry of Culture and Georgian National Museum launched another event of Cultural Days of China – exhibition of contemporary Chinese painters called “Silk Road in Colors”.
Mikheil Tsereteli, Deputy Director General of the Georgian National Museum opened the soiree: ‘I am deeply convinced that culture is the lever that offers the opportunity of close cooperation between the two countries. This exhibition is the bright example of that.”
After that, Marina Mizandari, Deputy
Minister of Culture and Monuments Protection, delivered a speech: “The conception of this exposition is strengthening the cultural dialogue. A group of painters was formed in China; it has visited all the countries of Silk Road that made up around 10 countries, Rome being the final point of their route. This display is a compilation of emotions that they accumulated during their journeys. I would like to say that in spite of great difference between Georgia and China, there are two main features that we have in common: ancient culture and traditions that go back to several thousands of years and Silk Road. I hope that this exhibition will become the prerequisite of much larger scale of cultural relations.”
Chen Jianfu, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the People’s Republic of China, said in his speech: “We can say that Silk Road is the starting point of our bilateral relations. Silk Road was the crossroad of eastern and western cultures. It was also where our cultural ties started. This exhibition aims to show you Silk Road in a new perspective. Next year, we are expecting Georgian Cultural Days in China. Georgia can be proud of its high level of art. You have such great figures as Rustaveli, Pirosmani, Gudiashvili, etc. Therefore, Chinese people look forward to seeing the masterpieces of your culture in their country and the Chinese government fully supports and welcomes these days, which will boost the bilateral cultural cooperation. I hope that the Cultural Days of China will be successful”.
Famous Chinese painters painted over 30 pictures. They are done either in the ancient Chinese technique – using brush made of bamboo and tail of wolf, or in oil; they depict China and Orient in general as well as Italy, where the journey ends.
Mr. Meng Jianguo, Deputy Secretary General of the Shaanxi Province Government, which was the most representative region of China, in the sense of the origins of the above said painters, arrived specially to attend the exhibition: “The city of Shan Su Province was the capital of China during 13 dynasties. The aim of our exhibition is to strengthen the relations with Silk Road countries. We wish to expand economic, political and social ties between Georgia and China via cultural relations.”
The exhibition “Silk Road in Colors” will continue till December 24, at the Georgian National Museum.
