Shantou China Museums
SHANTOU, China - Chairman Mao's oversized figure is carved into the stone wall of the Guangdong Cultural Revolution Museum in Shantou, Guangxi Province, and an oversized image of him is embedded in the etching. The image is one of hundreds of engravings on cold gray tablets made in the late 1970s and early 1980s during the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution. They are from a 1995 book, "The CulturalRevolution Museum," published by Yang Kelin in Hong Kong. Authorities in southern China's Guangdong province have apparently cracked down on the only museum dedicated to the "Great Cultural Revolution" since it was created in 1976 by the late Supreme Leader Mao Zedong in response to his anti-communist policies.
Wang Huangsheng (ccc) is a Chinese artist, curator and educator currently living in Beijing. Wang is an outstanding art expert who enjoys special allowances from the Chinese State Council and was appointed professor at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.
The city of Chaozhou in the east of Guangdong is known to the world for its Chinese culture abroad. Chen was welcomed by Mao Zedong and became the founding chairman of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CCC) in Beijing, to which he has since returned. Nanhaijun was founded on the principle of unifying the whole country of China, and Chen became one of its founding chairmen. Although physically separated from GuangDong by a border with the People's Republic of Korea, it has been occupied by the non-Hansanian ethnic group since the late 19th century.
The Chinese Overseas Museum of History, hereinafter referred to as OCHMC, was opened in January 2005 to mark the 100th anniversary of the founding of Nanhaijun, China's first national museum. The museum is located in Chaozhou City, Guangdong Province, on the outskirts of Guangzhou and was opened to great fanfare on January 2005.
The privately financed museum was founded without the support or open resistance of the communist authorities. In many ways, what Mr. Peng built was a museum, primarily to document the nightmares that the Communist Party and its allies in the People's Liberation Army (PLA) have inflicted on a corner of China.
Ceramics, jade, bronze and carved bamboo form one of the most treasured collections in the museum's collection, which includes more than 1,000 pieces.
If you haven't visited Nan'ao Island in Shantou, it should be on your checklist, as it is designated by China's National Geographic as the most beautiful island in Guangdong and houses one of the world's largest collections of ancient and modern art. Exhibitions curated by us include a wide range of works of art, from ceramics to sculptures, paintings, sculptures and sculptures. The Cultural Revolution exhibitions, for example, are much larger than anything found in other Hong Kong museums, and they are permitted in private museums.
Also in the park is the Shantou Museum, where you can admire the cultural remains of past dynasties in the city and the legacy of the past dynasty. The museum is divided into two parts, the Cultural Revolution Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Art. Both museums are located in Nan'ao Park, home to the National Museum of Guangdong, China's oldest museum, and Qingdao National Park.
China's ongoing legacy - overseas Chinese manufacturing is no exception, and to this day, the hometowns of the aging Chinese are the site of most of their museums. Chinese Party and state leaders have made enormous efforts to establish a large number of museums about the history of overseas Chinese in China since the mid-1990s.
The approved agenda for exhibits about overseas Chinese is perhaps best illustrated by the date chosen by the Chinese authorities for the opening of the first museum in Shanghai, the Shanghai Museum of Overseas Chinese. The first such exhibition opened this year, just as unrest following China's civil war and subsequent crackdown on the Communist Party was easing.
Founded by Shantou's former mayor Peng Qian and financed by billionaire Li Ka-shing, the museum is located on the outskirts of the city, just a few blocks from the city center. The privately funded museum was founded without support or open resistance to the communist authorities, but it was founded with the support of a large number of residents and local government officials. He has scraped together enough money over two decades to create the Cultural Revolution Museum, which opened in the early 1990s and focuses on China's revolutionary past and cultural legacy.
Except in Hong Kong, they are only available in the US, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and the UK. Every museum in China has its own history and culture, but what is left behind must be seen for what it is.
