The director of China Cultural Centre Sydney Mr. Xiao Xia Yong indicates that the 6 women artists have brought in different artistic styles which are incredibly beautiful, unique and meaningful. We have learned mutual respects, cross cultural artworks and communications through these artworks. It allows us to broaden our horizons, understand different perspectives and acquire new inspirations from these beautifully crafted artworks.
However due to the spread of COVID-19 in Australia, China Cultural Centre in Sydney has suspended the opening ceremony and discussion forum for this exhibition as to avoid public gathering and cross infections. But the centre will implement a “cloud recording mode” to promote the exhibition online, that includes the official website, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Youtube and WeChat official account. A similar photo exhibition will be posted online for audiences who are interested. Once we have overcome this special period of time, “WHOSE story is this?…anyway!” will meet you offline in our centre officially!
