Mounting exhibitions to show the history, culture and social life of China's ethnic groups has long been a commitment of the National Art Museum of China.
One Home for All Ethnicities, an exhibition themed on ethnic unity and just closed at the museum this week, showed more than 70 Chinese paintings by 10 artists from diverse ethnic backgrounds who excel at applying different techniques of classical ink painting in their works. Also on show were a dozen sculptures in the National Art Museum's collection.
Several ink artists whose works were featured at the exhibition attended a forum at the museum to discuss the renewed creation of artworks centering around the preservation of ethnic cultures and poverty alleviation in areas inhabited by different ethnic groups. It also reviewed the exhibitions at the museum to show ethnic arts and crafts.
