The 2nd International Exhibition of Calligraphy in Moscow
Don’t miss this! The great event is back!
From October 14th – November 14th, Moscow will see the 2nd International Exhibition of Calligraphy featuring, inter alia, Chinese calligraphy and calligraphy from other Oriental countries.
The Chinese Calligraphy and Tibetan and Mongolian Calligraphy sections are located in the Victoria Pavilion 7a. The list of the Chinese masters on display is available at the exhibition’s official website.
In 2009, Moscow has become the Calligraphy Capital of the World, the crossroads of the West and East, the meeting place of professional and amateur artists, the battlefield of classical and ultramodern calligraphy. The exposition will feature works by renowned calligraphers from thirty-three countries: exquisite samples of Slavic and European writing, strict forms of classical Japanese and traditional Chinese writing, and subtle inscriptions of the Jewish and Arab calligraphy.
The Moscow audience has a unique chance to savour paintings and rare manuscripts, listed into the Guinness World Records as well as to participate in mini-festivals of Japanese, Tibetan, Slavic cultures and in calligraphy master-classes.
The exhibition is held under the auspices of the Commission of the Russian Federation for UNESCO and the RF Ministry of Culture. It has also been approved by the Russian Orthodox Church, the Chief Rabbinate of Russia, the Mufti Council of Russia, and Russia’s Buddhist organizations. All this emphasizes the prominent role of the project in the preservation of the world cultural heritage.
