Exhibition Tour of Contempora­ry Italian Sculptures Starts in China


A collection of contempora­ry Italian sculptures began an exhibition tour across China on January 7 in the Zhejiang Art Museum in Hangzhou, east China’s Zhejiang Province.

The exhibition, themed “Gaze of Tranquilit­y,” put on display 35 wood carvings and seven stone carvings created by eight contempora­ry Italian sculptors, including Aron Demetz, Bruno Walpoth, and Gehard Demetz.

After Hangzhou, the exhibition will continue its tour in the cities of central China’s Wuhan and south China’s Guangzhou.

Bruno Walpoth’s works were once put on display in the Zhejiang Art Museum in 2016 and were well received.

“Since the show, we had been thinking about a larger exhibition of contempora­ry Italian sculptures,” said Ying Jinfei, curator of the museum.

The exhibition is meant to demonstrat­e the ingenuity of Italian sculptors, according to Ying.
