China's Forgotten Kingdom


Together with Chinese partners, the Communications University of China in Beijing, Lijiang digital media center for Naxi Dongba Culture and the Chinese Government; staff and students from the University of Northampton are hosting a one-of-a-kind exhibition of Chinese art. The exhibition focuses on the artistic identity of the Naxi ethnic minority from Yunnan, showcasing the traditional processes of carving, painting and drawing that are synonymous with the Naxi culture. Following the showing at Avenue Gallery the exhibition will travel to Bankside Gallery in London and RBSA Gallery 2 in Birmingham. Paul Middleton, Executive Dean at the School of The Arts said: "The University of Northampton is very proud to be the launch venue for this exciting exhibition. We have worked closely with the Communications University of China in Beijing and the Chinese Government to bring this extraordinary art work to the UK, this experience is a real treat for our students and art lovers."
