Sino-French Cultural Exchange Exhibition

2021-10-20 Download Print

A special exhibition entitled “The Parisianer, Chronicles of Our Planet”  opened at the Changsha Library on October 15, 2021, as part of the cultural exchange activities of the Franco-Chinese Month of the Environment 2021.

The exhibition is curated by the French National Museum of Natural History and the magazine cover team of The Parisianer. It brings to life the great naturalistic discoveries from the geological age to the future through a series of novel illustrations. Twenty-one covers take visitors through the history of the earth and explore important natural discoveries.

By incorporating luminaries like Voltaire and Boufon into humorous settings, the exhibition leads visitors to imagine what earth might look like in the future, with the help of sci-fi scenarios about melting ice caps and migrating to Mars.

The friendship between China and France is long-standing and well-established. The French Consulate General in Wuhan has maintained close contacts with Changsha since its establishment. The Changsha Library has also established a long-term and solid friendly relationship with the French Consulate General in Wuhan, with frequent and colorful cultural exchange activities, including “Croisements Festival", "French Time in Changsha", and "Franco-Chinese Month of the Environment".

Following an exhibition themed “Insects that Save the Earth” in April this year, Changsha residents have once again embarked on a romantic, imaginative, yet rigorous and scientific journey.

The exhibition will run until November 15, 2021, and its exhibits will be on display for a tour exhibition at the member libraries of Changsha-Zhuzhou-Xiangtan Public Library Alliance.   

Mr. Yann Moreau, science and technology commissioner of the French Consulate General in Wuhan, and Wang Ziyang, curator of the Changsha Library, jointly unveiled the exhibition. After the opening ceremony, Mr. Yann Moreau introduced the exhibition to visitors in French.
