Saturday, February 20, 2016 was presented to the Museum of Oriental Art in Turin the general catalog of the exhibition at the Chinese Pavilion and the cultural activities of the current year.
Turin. After six months of successful exhibition in the pavilion of Chinese companies in Expo Milan, with over two million visitors, the artistic initiative “The Qualities of China” by Qualitaly has now become a catalog and it anticipates the tour of the selected works on display in major Chinese cities over the course of the year 2016.
The book was presented in the Conference Room of the Oriental Art Museum in Turin, Via San Domenico 11, Saturday, February 20, 2016, supporting the initiatives of MAO related to China, such as the important exhibition “The Dragon and the Flower of Gold. Power and Magic in Imperial China Carpets”.
“We also proposed with videos and critical interventions, the unique and exciting experience lived for six months in the Universal Exposition – said the president of Qualitaly, Massimiliano Panero – and the extraordinary collaboration built with China about the promotion of the global contemporary art and the next steps that we shall do, on a national and international stage”.
Through the 136 pages of the catalog, enriched with the critical nods by the head of the Scientific Committee Giorgio Barberis and the head of the Italy-China National Federation Shaogang Hu, you scroll all the selected works and the exhibition in the Chinese pavilion at EXPO, the results of the art contest connected to the global initiative and a photo gallery of moments and characters that have driven the hundred and eighty days of Qualitaly in the center of the world.
“The Qualities of China is just the beginning of a journey that, by the event in the MAO museum of Turin, Qualitaly will accomplish throughout 2016 – says the association’s artistic director, Nikolinka Nikolova – and the innovations that enrich the presentation of the catalog are amazing. Beginning with the exhibition tour in China and up to a close contact with the organization of the EXPO 2017 in Astana and Dubai in 2020, with a series of events ranging from Australia to Russia via Italy and new collaborations with some of the most important players for art and culture in the world”.
