According to China Economic Net, an exhibition titled ‘Image-Making’ recently debuted at the Baoku Art Centre in Shanghai to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the beginning of diplomatic ties between China and Pakistan.
The exhibition aims to carry out dialogue between two ancient Silk Road civilisations, reveal the connotation of “community with a shared future for humanity,” and provide inspiration for the development of art globalisation in the new era, using Pakistani carpet art collection and Chinese contemporary paintings and images as carriers.
The year 2021 marks the 70th anniversary of bilateral friendship between China and Pakistan. It also marks the 100th anniversary  of the founding of the Communist Party of China. Chinese weavers combined Pakistani weaving techniques with traditional Chinese craft of hand-knitting carpets. The video and part of the photography works on display were created by Li Rongkai, a director of art films in China.
