Added On June 16, 2019

A China-New Zealand art exchange exhibition is underway at the New Zealand Parliament Building, featuring China's unique aesthetic art.
Let's take a look.
The exhibition, named "2019 Image and Imagination", features works of 20 Chinese artists, showing China's traditional art. It also brings together 20 works of art by New Zealand artists with strong multicultural characteristics.
New Zealand officials praised the exhibition, saying the display will boost cultural and artistic exchanges between the two countries.
SOUNDBITE 1 (English): ADRIAN RURAWHE, Assistant Speaker of New Zealand Parliament 
"It’s a wonderful thing that we have this kind of exhibition in Parliament, where all parties can have access to, but even more than that, this place is the People's House. I think art, as my colleague has said, is a great way to express."
SOUNDBITE 2 (English): MICHAEL WOOD, Under-Secretary for Ethnic Communities of New Zealand
"One of the ways in which we can build links and come to understand one another more is through the arts. I am absolutely convinced that the key to building a community of well being in social cohesion and harmony between different people of different cultures, faiths and ethnicities is through understanding."
The exhibition will be open till July 18.
