The Understand China by Insight-Arabic Distinguish Artists China Tour Exhibition opened at the National Art Museum of China on Sept 10. The exhibition, co-hosted by the Ministry of Culture of The People’s Republic of China and the Secretariat of the League of Arab States, was jointly hosted by China Arts and Entertainment Group and the National Art Museum of China. Ding Wei, the vice minister of China’s Ministry of Culture, attended the opening ceremony.
Understand China by Insight implies sensing China through “soul communication”, that is, the Arabic artists observe China with their own eyes, understand China with soul and depict China with a paint brush. In the past five years, over 50 artists from Arabic countries such as Jordan, UAE, Bahrain, Tunisia, Algeria, Djibouti, Sudan, Syria, Iraq, Oman, Palestine, Comorin, Kuwait, Lebanon, Egypt, Morocco, Mauritania and Yemen have participated in this event. The Understand China by Insight series has become an important multilateral exchange platform between China and Arab countries in culture and art.
The over 40 pieces of exhibits of this exhibition, which were selection from around 150 pieces in previous shows, are reviewed and summarized to the previous five sessions. In spite of the difference in perspective of observation, creation technique, detail selection and painting style, the Arabic artists’ remarkable talent and exquisite artistic conception all express their love and praise to China, the Chinese people and Chinese culture.
