The science cloister of the Historical Building of the UB is hosting –from today until February 8- the 2nd International Exhibition on Art and Design Barcelona-Shangai. The exhibition gathers works by forty Chinese students, using different techniques and supports but with a theme in common: cultural dialogue.

This exhibition results from a collaboration agreement between the University of Barcelona, the Shanghai Art & Design Academy, and NACG Digital Art Talent Training Project Office. These are the awarded awards in the 5th China College Art & Design Awards Ceremony, a prestigious contest which received more than 9.000 participants from the Asian country this year. The UB will be the only place outside China to exhibit the awarded works.

Moreover, apart from these works, the exhibition also shows works by six Chinese students from the Faculty of Fine Arts of the UB. The exhibition holds a selection of twelve works by students from the bachelor’s degree on Design of the same University who, under the supervision of the lecturer Jesús del Hoyo, volunteered and proposed some posters showing several visual and conceptual reflections that result from the common ground of this plastic challenge: representing Barcelona and Shangai. The uniqueness of this exhibition lies in the internationalization of design criteria and the culture contrast, according to the organizers.

Also, on the occasion of this exhibition, on February 8, at 1 noon, the sala d’actes (boardroom) of the Faculty of Arts will hold an award ceremony to honor the best works out of the six that were submitted by the Chinese students from the University of Barcelona and the twelve students that were chosen from the bachelor’s degree on Design.
