Chinese characters have been used for over three thousand years. With their unique structure and shape, the characters have served as an important conduit and genre for literati and calligraphers to create their works throughout history. A vast array of applications for Chinese characters have been developed in different places. All kinds of creative adaptations can be found in the works of craftsmen, artists, literati, and even calligraphers. They can also be found in the everyday lives of ordinary people, through their games, religions, festivals, and ceremonies. The exhibition presents the value of Chinese characters in our cultural lifestyle and contemporary creation through research on Chinese characters in different areas, providing visitors with multiple perspectives to explore the relationship between Chinese characters, calligraphy and art creativity.
