"Culture is the country’s basis" - the origin and inheritance of Damei
The Wu Family's First Exhibition in China and the Damei Art Center Commercial Opening Ceremony
On December 20th 2017, the Damei Center held two-month Damei Art Festival. With the opening of the Damei Art Festival, the Damei Art Center business will be grandly unveiled.
In this year's Damei Art Festival, the Wu Family Exhibition has attracted much attention as the most important exhibition. The Wu family is the largest cultural family in China and has 900 years history of culture. It has held the "Dwelling in the Fuchun Mountains" for half a century. The descendants of the family are one of the most important founders of the Palace Museum, and make such big impact on culture industry both at home and abroad. In the contemporary residence, it once became a place where everyone in the literary and art circles gathered. A scene described in a modern version of "The Orchid Pavilion" is often showed there.
In the era of material deprivation, the Wu’s Hall became the “Si He Yuan salon” with the highest status, the largest scale and the most gold content in China at that time. It made a breakthrough in the development history of the new Chinese cultural industry.
Nowadays, due to the high degree of conformity with the pursuit of culture and art, the two sides have reached an agreement, and the number one salon of the literary and art circles will continue in the World Cloud, Damei Center. In the future, more events will be held in the World Cloud.
With long history of glorious achievement of Wu’s family, it’s rising our expectation of coming guests. During Wu's exhibition, famous director Feng Xiaogang, great collector Xu Huachi, granddaughter of Qi Baishi , painter Qi Huijuan and other honourable guests will come to Damei as the keynote speaker of Wu Family’s Exhibition and Damei Art Festival. They will share their family history and artistic stories with Wu family.
In addition to the Wu Family Exhibition and Salon, the Damei Art Festival will also host the exhibition of art and space aesthetics, the Young Artists Project, and the Jingdezhen Ceramic Art Exhibition in the exhibition halls and showcases on both sides of Hall GALLERY. The Damei Art Center protects the history with a diverse and rich series of activities, inherits the present concept, and presents the future, creating a unique style of art and aesthetics.
