The opening ceremony of the Classic Love - Chinese Ethnic Minorities Traditional Love Culture Exhibition co-organized by Nanning Museum and China Ethnic Museum was recently held in Nanning Museum.
With 113 pieces (sets) of collections of China Ethnic Museum on display combined with modern image devices, the exhibition let the citizens pass through time and space and present the traditional culture of free and ardent love among Chinese ethnic minorities embodied in songs, dance, and poetry. Instead of plain and ungarnished displaying, this exhibition paralleled the devices and exhibits and illustrated the traditional love culture of ethnic minorities in four parts, namely, poetry, garden house, story, and ceremony. The exhibition hall is based on the element of “round” (“yuan” in Chinese), creating an artistic conception of blooming flowers and full moon - perfect conjugal bliss. Every part of the exhibition hall are decorated with elements of ethnic groups with abstract symbols and light and shadow changes to interlace the tradition and modernity, presenting a romantic and free world of love. The exhibition aims to break the boundary between tradition and modernity, and remind the audience of their love while seeking the trail of classic love.
