Endless Green Mountains 3: The Tang Poetry Road, a Special Exhibition of Works by Chinese and Japanese Artists
HANGZHOU, China, Nov. 18, 2022 //PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

The year 2022 marks the 50th anniversary of the normalization of diplomatic 
relations between China and Japan. One of the activities to celebrate the 40th 
anniversary of the friendly relations between China's Zhejiang Province and 
Japan's Shizuoka Prefecture is a special exhibition of works by Chinese and 
Japanese artists entitled Endless Green Mountains 3: The Tang Poetry Road, a 
Special Exhibition of Works by Chinese and Japanese Artists that recently 
opened at Zhejiang Exhibition Hall. The exhibition shows how the deep 
historical and cultural ties between China and Japan served as a bridge to 
facilitate exchanges between the countries in the field of humanities. At the 
same time, Tang Poetry Road acts as a spiritual messenger that pays tribute to 
Sino-Japanese friendship and culture.

The exhibition displayed more than 200 artworks that are the inspirations of 
some 70 Chinese and Japanese artists including works by research fellows at the 
Zhejiang Provincial Culture and History Research Institute, professors at the 
China Academy of Art, and artists from Shizuoka University and Tokyo University 
of the Arts. The artworks were displayed for viewing simultaneously both online 
and in person, divided into groups each bearing a distinct theme: "A path all 
the way here", "The upper reaches of the cold, distant mountain" and "Far 
across the mountains and seas". The works comprised not only traditional 
Chinese art forms such as Chinese painting and calligraphy, but also included 
nearly all types of contemporary art forms: oil paintings, video, new media, 
sound, and installations, blending the traditional and the modern. Most 
notably, the exhibition combines the heritage of The Tang Poetry Road in 
eastern Zhejiang with digital Internet technologies to show in 3D the history 
of exchanges and mutual appreciation between China and Japan, with a particular 
focus on Zhejiang Province and Shizuoka Prefecture. The exhibition interprets 
the magnificent Chinese poetic culture that has been passed down through the 
ages, highlighting the deep cultural lineage in which Zhejiang Province has a 
key role, and reflecting the harmony and friendship expressed by Chinese and 
Japanese people through Zhejiang Bears Gifts, a work featuring artistic fusion 
and mutual appreciation. An authentic calligraphic work by Ikkyu Sojun was also 
on display.

The exhibition is open to the public from November 15th to November 26th.
