“Along with the objective of national revival, how to realize this revival will become the most important issue of exploration among cultural circles across the Strait, in Hong Kong and Macao as well all over the world.” “Confronted with two main barriers in the globalization, that is, cultural conflicts between China and the West and hegemony in science competition, we need to work hard to find the way and the approach to promote cultural development.” “It is expected that cultural talents across the Straits as well as in Hong Kong and Macao, with self-awareness, will hold fast to their mission and cultural root and strengthen exchange so as to realize common development. “The outcome and achievement of this Forum will significantly enlighten us on how to realize revival of Chinese culture and arts.” From December 9 till 11, the 6th Chinese Art Forum of Mainland, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan, under the theme of “Root and Dream—Chinese Culture and Arts as well as its Current Revival”, took place in Taichung City of Taiwan. Xia Chao, vice president of CFLAC, Liu Lanfang, vice president of CFLAC and honorary president of China Quyi Artists Association, Yen Tsun-tai and Lee Mai-hwi, vice chairs of Sheen Chuen-chi Cultural and Educational Foundation, Wong Ying-wai, chairman of Hong Kong Arts Development Council, Zhong Yi, member of Executive Committee of Macao Foundation as well as over 100 celebrities, scholars and experts from mainland, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macao, along with working personnel from CFLAC and related units attended this Forum to discuss “the root and dream” of Chinese culture.
During the Forum, more than 100 experts and scholars from the four regions of China such as Luo Huaizhen, Lin Shengfen, Jin Daiqiang, Dai Dingcheng, Mei Mosheng and Wang Hsing-wen conducted in-depth exchanges concerning many cultural issues. In the round table dialogue under the theme of “Culture and City”, 4 representative experts from various regions, namely Ye Shuxian, Niu Chuanhai, Ji Shuoming and Chan Chi Vai, discussed together the spiritual enhancement of a city as a key factor and important venue of culture formation and diversity. Wang Yichuan and Tian Qing, two scholars from mainland, held two special lectures of “Art and Life in the Eyes of Contemporary Literary and Art Masters” and “Process of Intangible Cultural Heritage Preservation” respectively in Asia University of Taiwan and National Yunlin University of Science & Technology. As most participants agreed, this Form is like an essay with liberal formality and theme focus, a traditional Chinese painting of both fine brushwork and freehand, and a “wormhole” that transcends space and spiritual cultures. Thanks to detailed exploration of such keywords as “time”, “scientific technology”, “conversion” and “value”, this Forum has obtained a considerable achievement.
Initiated in 2009, the Chinese Art Forum of Mainland, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan, as a brand exchange event of CFLAC with its counterparts in Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan, has witnessed a consecutive success in Hainan, Taiwan, Macao, Hong Kong and Chengde.
