Confucius Institute at the University of Melbourne supporting Qianlong Exhibition at NGV of Victoria
Confucius Institute at the University of Melbourne
On April 18th, the Confucius Institute at the University of Melbourne's Chinese calligraphy and painter teacher delivered a public lecture as part of the Qianlong Exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV). Over 60 guests enjoyed Xu Huawen's insights on "the intricate and precise nature of Chinese calligraphy."
A Golden Age of China, Qianlong Emperor(1736-1795), tells the story of China’s foremost art collector Qianlong emperor, one of China’s most successful rulers and fourth emperor of the Qing dynasty (1644-1911).
During Xu Huawen's talk he discussed Qianlong Emperor's artistic skills in poetry, art and calligraphy and detailed the intricate details of calligraphy through Emperor Qianlong's calligraphy works.
The Confucius Institute at the University of Melbourne will celebrate the 10th Anniversary of its establishment in 2017. Therefore, we would like to invite our past and current students to explore their relationship with China from their own perspective. We encourage all of current and past students to enter the competition for the chance to win a free air ticket to China!
