The two exhibitions will run for 5 days from June 26 to June 30.
„The Amazing Shanghai” was developed to amplify a new modern vision of Shanghai, boost its cultural influence and communicate its true emotional identity to people around the world. The upcoming events in Budapest aim to strengthen the bond between the two friendly cities: Shanghai and Budapest, to present the culture of Shanghai to Hungarian public, to promote the China-EU high-level people-to-people dialogue, and to advance the cultural and artistic exchanges between China and countries along the route of the Belt and Road Initiative.
Headlined as ìAmazing Shanghaiî, the Photography Exhibition will have 80 photographs on display, providing visitors an immersive journey to Shanghai. Through the artistic lens on Shanghai’s city landscape, city development, cultural characteristics and heritage, the exhibition reveals the urban images of the metropolis and its concrete substance in a cultural and spiritual context.
Hungary, as an important partner of China’s the Belt and Road Initiative, shares a long and deep friendship with China, while Shanghai and Hungary also enjoy a special bond dating back to the first half of 20 centuries. Hungarian architect L·szlÛ Hudec used to be responsible for some of Shanghaiís most notable buildings including the Park Hotel, the Grand Theater, the Wukang Mansion, the (original) Shanghai Beer Factory and many more masterpieces. These buildings have been well preserved and have been regarded as an important part of Shanghai’s cultural heritage. In this Photography Exhibition, visitors can get a glimpse of the historical sites and witness the profound friendship between Hungary and Shanghai.
