SZ Museum winter vacation events
    2018-January-29  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

Shenzhen Museum is organizing a series of traditional handicraft workshops and cultural events this winter vacation. Sign-ups will be held on the day of each activity at the museum.

Paper-cutting

Paper-cutting is one of the oldest and the most popular folk arts in China. In the Spring Festival, red papercuts are often used to decorate doors and windows, as red is associated with festivities and happiness in Chinese culture.

Time: 2:30-4:45 p.m., Feb. 4

Guided exhibition tours

Chinese-language guided tours will be held for the “Majolica: An Exhibition of the Legacies of 1,000 years of Italian Ceramics” exhibition. A selection of 150 ceramic pieces from Italy’s International Museum of Ceramics in Faenza is on display at the museum, portraying Italian ceramic history from the Middle Ages to the 20th century.

Time: 3-4 p.m., Jan. 31; 10:30-11:30 a.m., Feb. 3

Meanwhile, two other Chinese-language guided tours will also be held for the museum’s “The Wisdom of Achieving Inner Peace” exhibition. More than 100 ancient Guanyin statues and paintings on loan from Capital Museum in Beijing are on display.

Time: 3-4 p.m., Feb. 2; 10:30-11:30 a.m., Feb. 10

Decoupage making

Decoupage is the art of decorating an object by gluing colored papercuts onto it in combination with special paint effects, gold leaf and other decorative elements. Commonly, an object like a small box or an item of furniture is covered by cutouts from magazines. Each layer is sealed with varnishes until the “stuck on” appearance disappears and the result looks like painting or inlay work.

Time: 2:30-4:45 p.m., Feb. 9

Guqin appreciation

Chinese guqin player Yang Qiong will give a lecture and performance. The guqin is a plucked seven-string Chinese musical instrument of the zither family. It has been played since ancient times, and has traditionally been favored by scholars and literati as an instrument of great subtlety and refinement. It is sometimes referred to by the Chinese as “the father of Chinese music” or “the instrument of the sages.”

Time: 2:30-4 p.m., Feb. 11

Lectures

Shenzhen Museum’s vice curator Guo Xuelei will give a Chinese-language lecture on the exchange of Chinese and Italian ceramic techniques since the Renaissance.

Time: 2:30-4:30 p.m., Feb. 3

Meanwhile, Dr. Huang Yangxing, a researcher of Shenzhen Museum, will give a Chinese-language lecture on Guanyin and Buddhism.

Time: 2:30-4:30 p.m., Feb. 10

Venue: Shenzhen Museum, Block A, Civic Center, Futian District (福田区市民中心A区深圳博物馆)

Metro: Line 2 or 4, Civic Center Station (市民中心站), Exit B
