Chinese artists will demonstrate the country’s rich artistic legacy and innovative ideas. They will combine traditional techniques like nut carving, kesi (a type of silk tapestry), and metal craftsmanship with modern design.

The exhibition’s goal is to explore the evolution of traditional craftsmanship through modern innovation, as well as discuss new paths and forms of traditional arts in the present day.

Experts also attended the 12th International (Shanghai) Intangible Cultural Heritage Protection Forum on June 6, where they shared their experiences, management methods, and conservation plans. The forum has also served as a conduit for global exchanges and cooperation on the preservation of intangible cultural assets.
