Jie xiang, an art exhibition dedicated to the development of communication and artistic exchanges between China and Japan began Friday in Suzhou, in Jiangsu province (east China).
The exhibition follows the curatorial logic of ‘twin flowers’, showcasing works of art in various forms such as ink and oil paintings and sculptures by 13 artists from China and Japan. Over 60 works of art are exhibited to showcase various artistic trends in Chinese and Japanese art history and their constant changes.
Next to the exhibition, an art forum discussing the wider cultural divergence and similarities between Chinese and Japanese cultures will also be held.
Among the many cities in China’s urban center, Suzhou has a special connection to Japan that dates back to 2,000 years ago, when economic, trade and cultural exchanges between the two began.
