On 5 April, 2017, at 16.00 the Central State Museum of the Republic of Kazakhstan together with the General Consulate of the People's Republic of China in Almaty will open a photo exhibition "New image and achievements of the Great Silk Road".
The Great Silk Road is one of the most significant achievements in the history of world civilization. Branched networks of caravan roads crossed Europe and Asia from the Mediterranean to China and in the era of antiquity and the Middle Ages served as an important means of trade networks and dialogue between the cultures of the West and the East. The longest section of the silk route passed through the territory of Central Asia and Kazakhstan.
The Central State Museum of the Republic of Kazakhstan in partnership with the General Consulate of the People's Republic of China continues to acquaint with the rich history, culture, traditions, customs and art of China through the work of Chinese photographers represented at the new exhibition "The New image of the Great Silk Road".
The exhibition consists of three parts: "New look", "Joint construction and usage" and "To live together, to develop together". At the exhibition more than 70 photographs, reflecting not only the history of the Great Silk Road, but also the successes of Kazakh-Chinese relations in politics, economy, construction, business, education, culture, tourism and sports are presented. In the works of photographers, architectural monuments, rich picturesque natural places and places of interest of China were also reflected.
The exhibition will last till 11th April.
