ADELAIDE, Australia — The "China Today" arts week was launched in Adelaide, the capital city of South Australia, on Jan 28 in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Australia.

Co-hosted by the China Federation of Literary and Art Circles, the Chinese embassy in Australia, the Consulate General of China in Adelaide and the Adelaide Festival Center, the arts week runs until March 19.

It features an exhibition of ceramic artworks from East China's Jiangxi province and paintings and prints from the northeastern Heilongjiang province.

The 50 items from Jingdezhen, a world-famous porcelain town in Jiangxi, were created by three generations of inheritors of an intangible cultural heritage, while the 39 works chosen from traditional Chinese paintings, oil paintings, prints, watercolor and other forms of art showed the scenery of northeastern China as well as people's life there.

Douglas Gautier, CEO of the Adelaide Festival Center, says that cultural collaboration between China and Australia helped enhance understanding between peoples.

Song Yanqun, minister-counselor for culture at the Chinese embassy in Australia, says that the exhibition had special significance, hoping that many Australian people could visit.
