Ditsong: Museums of South Africa in collaboration with the China Three Gorges Museum and the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in South Africa are hosting an exhibition entitled ‘Dream of the Homeland-Chinese Peasant Painting’.

The Curator of the exhibition is Li Xiaolong from the Three Gorges Museum in Chongqing City. This city is known as the ‘mountain city’ and is home to the world renowned ‘three gorges’ as well as the Yangtze River that runs through it.

This colourful exhibition encompasses the development as well as the culture in this region. The paintings were created by peasant artists in rural areas and depict their daily experiences of farming, festivals, music, village customs and children.

“If you are becoming weary of watching the classic and abstract paintings, these works will provide you with a unique alternative that strikes you with its extreme liveliness, vivacious rural style and bold imagination,” said Mr Makgolo Makgolo, CEO of DITSONG: Museums of Africa.

In his remarks Ambassador Tian Xuejun of the People’s Republic of China in South Africa said, “Culture is an important area for different countries to have exchanges and cooperation. It is also the bonding tie that enhances the mutual understanding and friendship between the people. Since the beginning of this year, our embassy in South Africa has been engaging in close cooperation with the museum and galleries of South Africa and facilitated more than 20 exhibitions of Chinese culture of different kinds in 8 provinces of South Africa.”

 The Exhibition runs at the museum in Pretoria from 20 November 2012 to 20 January 2013.
