CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- On November 20, as an important part of 2020 Chongqing Dutch Day, the “China-Dutch Reaction” Chongqing/Rotterdam Photo Exhibition was held in Baguocheng Ecological Park.
The exhibition is organized by the Consulate General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Chongqing, Chongqing Jiulongpo Culture and Tourism Development Committee, and undertaken by Chongqing Longli Baguocheng Culture and Tourism Development Co., Ltd. The exhibition has nearly 60 works, taken by Dutch photographer Patrick and Chinese photographer Wu Liang respectively.
According to the organizers, the exhibition is a process of mutual exchange between China and the Netherlands. It includes images of Chongqing taken by the Dutch photographer and images of Rotterdam taken by the Chongqing photographer. The two photographers have very different styles and different perspectives of the city.
The reporter of Chongqing Daily saw that the exhibition uses a wooden container as the work carrier, turning the conventional photo exhibition into a large-scale photo art installation, connecting and amplifying the cultural attributes between the two cities of Chongqing and Rotterdam. “By viewing the exhibition, it is hoped that visitors will learn more about the commonalities between Chongqing and Rotterdam,” Wang Yuanling, Exhibition Organizer, said.
“The holding of Chongqing/Rotterdam Photo Exhibition will undoubtedly further promote continuous cultural and artistic exchanges between China and the Netherlands, show the unique cultural charm of the two countries, and advance the development of the cultural and tourism industries of them,” Wang Tianlan, CEO of the event’s organizer, Chongqing Longli Baguocheng Culture and Tourism Development Co., Ltd., said.
It is reported that the “China-Dutch Reaction” Exhibition will last one month and opens to the public for free. (Translated by Wang Huixin, Fathom Language Limited)
