October 3-6, 2019.
The exhibition named The Great Chinese Calligraphy and Painting: One Belt – One Road, is to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the Russian Federation and China. The Soviet Union (USSR) and the People's Republic of China entered into diplomatic relations on October 2, 1949. It is anticipated to become the key cultural event in Moscow in 2019. Over 500 experts from federal ministries and authorities, universities, and non-governmental organizations in Russia and China are engaged in the run-up.
The event offers a specialized focus on ancient cultural links, which existed between the civilizations thanks to the Silk Road, demonstrating mutual diffusion and interaction between different cultures, languages and peoples.
The unique project will put on display more than just classic Chinese calligraphy, but examples of writing in rare national languages from across Chinese provinces: Manchurian, Mongolian, Uighur, Tibetan, Naxi (dongba writing), Dai (dai writing) and other ethnic minorities that today form an extensive family of peoples in contemporary China.
