Themed as “The Splendid Languages of Paper”, the Contemporary Art on Chinese Papermaking Culture exhibition is being held at the Zhejiang Art Museum in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province.

The exhibition not only interprets the unremitting efforts and exploration of contemporary art in the circulation of Chinese traditional culture, but also reflects the artist's protection and new interpretation to the Chinese civilization.
