BEIJING, June 29 (Xinhuanet) -- An artistic dialogue has been created between the Chinese mainland, Hong Kong and Macao Special Administrative Regions, thanks to the 2010 Hong Kong and Macao Visual Arts Exhibition.
The show, which opens Monday at the Beijing World Art Museum, encourages open-minded thinking and creative techniques within the visual arts scene in Hong Kong and Macao.
On display are over one-hundred exhibits covering a wide range of genres, including paintings, posters, sculptures, calligraphy, and installation art. All aim to recreate different perspectives of life among people in the Hong Kong and Macao SARs.
Participating in the exhibition are 83 Hong Kong and Macao artists of different generations. Their various backgrounds and experiences help to create a panoramic view of the cultures of Hong Kong and Macao, which are two indispensable cogs on the wheel of Chinese culture.
Chai Bu Kuk, one of the exhibition's curators, says over the years ink-wash painters in Hong Kong have been working tirelessly pursued their cultural roots while sticking to the tradition of Chinese fine arts.
