Silk Road Culture Tour | 'Code of Love'

  • Thursday, 14 Mar 2019 - 9AM

'The Code of Love' Chinese Contemporary Female Arts World Tour

The Silk Road Culture Tour is an exhibition of cultural exchange, exploring a Chinese expression of femininity through contemporary traditional Chinese visual artworks.

The Silk Road was an ancient trade route connecting China and Europe and was significant in fostering cross-cultural exchange between the East and West. The exhibition has been presented internationally, with previous shows held in Malta, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Spain. 
Perth is the last city on the tour and the final change to witness this cultural exhibition. 

Professor Chen Shenglai, head of the NBICER, founded the Shanghai International Arts Festival and is a research professor at the Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences. 

For Chen, the exhibition is not only an activity for the international cultural exchange but an opportunity to gain a new perspective on Chinese feminine art: 

"It highlights the peerless elegance of the Chinese female, with the more recently acquired sense of self-esteem, self -confidence, self-reliance and self-improvement. It is believed that this world tour will be a new page in the history of Chinese feminine art."
