Jointly organized by the Dunhuang Academy, the research and management institution of the Mogao Gro
ttoes and the Chicago-based Pritzker Art Collaborative, the exhibition opened last week and will run until Oct 22.上海乌托邦
According to David Pritzker, co-curator of the exhibition, the event
上海乌托邦品茶微信aims to display only the highest quality objects, both in terms of aesthetics and historical impo
rtance, to reflect the cultural interactions between the Tubo regime and its neighboring regions.
“To start with beauty is the best way to draw the general public into history,” the curator says.上海乌托邦
During its peak, the Tubo regime also controlled the oases in the Taklamakan Desert, l
上海乌托邦ocated in today’s Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, as well as certain areas of Central Asia.
Dunhuang was also ruled by the regime from 781 to 848, when 56 caves were carved out at the Mogao Grottoes－with Ca
ve 158 being the most representative of them. A large number of documents written in the Tibetan language were left be上海乌托邦品茶微信
hind during this period, according to Zhao Shengliang, director of Dunhuang Academy.
“The exhibition is not only about the origins and development of the Tubo regime,” Zhao says. “It also provides a plat上海乌托邦
form to show the mutual influences between the different cultures along the Silk Road.”
Consequently, the exhibition presents a much bigger picture thr

earthenware figurines from the Tang Dynasty, to a silver dish featuring a royal banquet scene from the Sogdian peo
ple, an ancient ethnic group living in Central Asia who acted as middlemen along Eurasian trade networks.上海乌托邦品茶微信
The exhibition hall is a glittering world. A burial mask with engraved animals, a figurine of a rid
er on horseback, a brooch inset with turquoise, amethyst and aquamarine－all made of gold－all de
monstrate, not just the prosperity of that ancient era on the plateau, but its different facets.
Gilded silver ornam上海乌托邦品茶微信ental artifacts provide one of the highlights of the exhibition. Six p

“When people talk about the Silk Road, it is largely about the East-West connection, yet little is said about the influ
ence of Tubo on the Silk Road, since its timespan is relatively short,” Pritzker says. “However, its role is important.”

he Liaison Office of the Central People’s Government in the Hong Kong SAR said in a stateme

That office also expressed its firm support for the SAR government in dealing上海乌托邦品茶微信
with the violence in accordance with the law, safeguarding the rule of law and social o

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Office of the Commissioner of the Ministry
of Foreign Affairs in the Hong Kong SAR joined the condemnation of violent protesters and blasted the “double standard” of forei

Responding to remarks by the United States, United Kingdom and the European
Union on the violent protest, a statement from the office urged them to stop interfering in China’s sovereignty and security and Hong Kong’s prosperity and stability.
Deploring the “selective ignorance” of foreign governments, the office que

World-renowned architect Ieoh Ming Pei, commonly known as I.M. Pei,
has died at the age of 102 at his home in Manhattan, according to multiple reports on Thursday.
Praised as “one of the most revered architects in the world” by The New York Times, Pei has le

Pei’s modern designs and high-profile projects led him to be considered one of the most high-prof
ile architects of the 20th century, with the renovation of Paris’ Louvre Museum perhaps the most famo
us project he embarked on. He was also involved in the building of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland.
What Pei valued most in architecture, as he put it, was that it must “stand th
e test of time”. He also valued simplicity: “The simpler the solution, the more powerful it is,” he once said.
