Beauty in Asian Instruments: As Blossoms Fly and Fade

Date: Sept. 21 & 22

Nanguan is one of the oldest remaining musical styles in China. The instruments of Nanguan are quite similar to those used in ancient Chinese music, with most of them no longer being played or having changed their original forms. Wang Xinxin started learning Nanguan at the age of four. Since then, she has mastered various types of this Chinese ancient music and is particularly famous for her singing. She established the Xinxin Nanguan Ensemble in 2004 and has been dedicated to promoting the traditional art by upholding the principle of "the most ancient is also the most modern."

Exhibition: "The History and Prospect of Xiang Embroidery"

Xiang embroidery, or Hunan embroidery, is the general name of Hunan embroidery articles with distinctive Xiang-Chu culture characteristics, which is centered in Changsha, capital of central China's Hunan Province. It is one of China's most storied traditional folk art forms, with a history of more than 2,000 years. Xiang embroidery, along with Suzhou embroidery, Sichuan embroidery and Cantonese embroidery, is regarded as one of the most distinguished embroidery styles in China. Replicas of embroidered works unearthed from the Han tomb at Mawangdui in Changsha in 1972 and related Xiang embroidery relics in modern China are on display.
