This photographic exhibition present the on-going changes of Beijing; changes that not only refer to the surface of urban space, but also many aspects of people’s daily life and their attitude towards life in China. Hosted by the Confucius Institute, the photographs are jointly organised by the London Confucius Institute for TCM and the Xinhua News Agency London Bureau. Professor Yinong Xu , Executive Director London Confucius Institute for TCM adds that time and space cannot be separated; they are one. Playfully roaming between then and now, and between there and here, these sets of paired images present some fascinating narratives of on-going changes of the city of Beijing, which reveal the profound spatio-temporal nature of the Chinese Urban world.
The exhibition forms part of the institute’s Contemporary Chinese Art Season 'Transformation of Spaces' and will be officially opened on 16th Oct by Ms Jayne Hindle, Head of School Administration together with newly appointed Chinese director Dr Shuangxia Sheng. Viewers will have the opportunity to take part in a social media contest to win a FREE course at the Confucius Institute. Details can be found on the Confucius Institute Facebook page (@ConfuciusMCR).
