A painting and calligraphy art show opened on Nov 1 at the National Museum of Art in Beijing. But rather than featuring pieces from painting masters, the exhibition gathers the work of researchers at the Central Research Institute of Culture and History.
More than 140 artists and researchers have a platform to give their perspective on the country’s rich art culture.
At the National Museum of Art in Beijing, traditional Chinese culture is taking center stage.
Over 140 researchers from the Central Research Institute of Culture and History are looking at ways to capture and promote the cultural achievements of ancient China.
Approximately 300 exhibits are on display, including the impressive work of the son of late painting master, Li Keran.
According to the organizer, each piece is a fusion of traditional culture and contemporary innovation.
“These landscape paintings are created by Feng Qiyong from our institute. And you can see he has studied the works of painters from the Ming and Qing Dynasty, using only ink to depict the mountains while putting a modern touch to it,” said Feng Yuan, deputy director, Central Research Institute of Culture & History.
The exhibition runs until Nov 9.
