Korean and Chinese Student Calligraphy Exhibition

“Chinese Characters” as the East Asian nations’ common language, has become the media for the co-creation and co-development of the magnificent Eastern Culture with Korea and China.  Especially Chinese calligraphy which was inscribed in 2009 on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO was invented in ancient China and spread to Korea that used Chinese characters.

The successful Korean and Chinese Students Calligraphy Competition in Seoul in November 2018.This competition is divided into two groups, Korean group and Chinese group, we received 35 pieces of calligraphy artworks recommended by Tsinghua University, Shanghai Jiaotong University, Zhejiang
University, Central South University, Chinese University of Hong Kong (Shenzhen) and City University of Hong Kong of the Chinese group; and 25 pieces of calligraphy artworks from Seoul National University, Daejeon University, Kyunggi University and Sungkyunkwan University of the Korean group.  The roving exhibition in Hong Kong in January 2019, has become the focal point for the exchange of art and calligraphy.

University of Edinburgh, City University of Hong Kong and Jigu Institute present the “Science and Art” calligraphy exhibition from 5-20 September. The exhibition engages winning artworks selected from Korean and Chinese Students Calligraphy Competition after Seoul and Hong Kong. We hope this calligraphy exhibition will give everyone a golden opportunity to appreciate students from 10 universities in Korea and China who consulted ancient classics related to “sustainability” and expressed their understanding of philosophy and wisdom hidden in the East Asian classics.

All are welcome!
