Tomorrow, the "Chinese Contemporary Ceramic Artists Series Exhibition" will be held at the 117 Art Center of Ningbo Culture Museum. The exhibition will be held from June 18th to July 17th. The exhibition will feature more than 100 works by Chinese black pottery artist Liu Hao and Zisha artist Wu Ming. Liu Hao devoted himself to the study of black pottery art in the early 1980s and started the first modern black pottery art training class in Shandong. In 1990, he co-founded the China Black Pottery Institute with the Academy of Fine Arts of Tsinghua University and served as the director. In 2011, China Taoxie Association awarded Liu Hao the “China Ceramic Art Lifetime Achievement Award”. As the founder of China's modern black pottery, CCTV introduced him to the three themes of "Liu Hao and his black pottery art", "Qilu earth-burning pottery" and "Chinese style". Ningbo is the starting point of the Maritime Silk Road and the birthplace of Hemudu Black Pottery and Yue Kiln Celadon. The two cultural heritages of the "Maritime Silk Road" and the "Yue Kiln Celadon Site" have also been included in the preliminary list of China's declared World Cultural Heritage. Liu Hao said that this exhibition is also the root of Hemudu, the birthplace of black pottery. Later, he will often come to Ningbo to train black pottery artists. The works of Zisha artist Wu Ming are hailed as the pioneering of “Zisha Modern Ceramic Art” and “New School”. Later, from July 18th to November 17th, the pavilion will display a series of works by Zhang Hao, president of Hunan Ceramic Art Association, Lu Jingbo, inventor of China Gold Porcelain, and Hong Shude, a pottery artist. At that time, the pavilion will hold ceramic art appreciation activities, and authoritative experts will identify the collectors' collections on the spot. A special auction of pottery artists will also be held, and the general public are welcome to come to the exhibition. This series of works is to cooperate with Ningbo City's “declaration of world cultural heritage” work, revitalize the kiln celadon glory, build a new maritime silk road, and increase Ningbo's international and domestic popularity.
