Director's welcoming address
If you name your museum the Contemporary Museum of Calligraphy, you have to assume considerable responsibility. A 21st century museum is an international cultural and educational centre, as well as an open creative space where artists and spectators, masters and disciples can easily swap roles. It is a unique laboratory which affords visitors boundless insights, both historical and contemporary. Such reality shifts affect all our senses: every country has its special aroma, music, symbols and imagery … Festivals and exhibitions organized by our staff are real transformations on a universal and personal scale engendering a sense of breathtaking beauty. Masters of calligraphy inscribe new fascinating chapters into the history of our museum.
