  • Xian Rui (Fresh and Sharp) 鮮銳
The Chinese Culture Center is pleased to introduce the Xian Rui
exhibition series.  The title of the series, ‘xian’ meaning fresh and
‘rui’ meaning sharp, embodies the art and artists the series aims to
capture.  Xian Rui holds significance in timing and content,
emphasizing recently created work and newly conceived exhibitions.
Exceptional Chinese and Chinese American artists, whose work is under
recognized in the United States, will present artworks that evoke a
fresh and sharp perspective on Chinese culture.  Exhibitions will have
been created within 18 months prior to their display at the CCC
gallery, with a special emphasis on debut pieces.  Whether it be by
utilizing Chinese art forms and techniques, or deriving inspiration
from Chinese motifs, all featured projects will ultimately be both a
product and reflection of the culture.  Xian Rui exhibitions grant
exposure to underrepresented artists and bring viewers a renewed
appreciation and fresh perspective on the contemporary Chinese
culture.

  • 中華文化中心推介歷史文化遊 ( 本報記者胡健宏三藩市報道 ) 隨著旅遊旺季的開始,中華文化中心再度力促華埠的歷史文化遊,希望為遊覽華埠的節目當中增添更多與中國傳統文化以及華裔歷史相關的元素,讓遊客和新一代華裔在遊覽華埠的同時,能夠增加對這方面的瞭解。 中華文化中心助理項目總監汲逢源表示,華埠歷史文化游其實是中心長期以來都有的項目,不過今年中心特別將該項目系統地加以整理,從而能更有條理地在介紹華埠時加入文化與歷史的內涵。例如會在遊覽的過程當中,向遊客介紹中醫中藥的歷史與現狀,還有一些中國的傳統節日以及這些節日的意義和習俗。 而在歷史方面,汲逢源表示除了介紹華埠以及一些主要僑團的歷史之外,還會加入華人移民來美160多年以來的歷史,當中會包括淘金潮、華人帶來的農業和漁業、排華法案等,當中也會加入一些實際的數據來證明華人對美國所作出的貢獻。 汲逢源認為這種帶有文化與歷史的華埠游計劃,除了對遊客來說增加了不少樂趣之外,對年輕一輩的華裔更是有非常重要的影響,因為透過這些活動,新一代的華裔能夠瞭解先僑的貢獻與艱辛奮鬥,從而增強自我的信心和自尊心,對於一些中國人的傳統禮教和習俗亦有更深刻的認識和理解。 中華文化中心的華埠歷史文化遊由中心負責提供,汲逢源表示中心方面已經在積極進行開展宣傳工作,包括在各大酒店派發宣傳單張,採訪一些參加該計劃的團友並將採訪短片上載到YouTube等來增加這個計劃的知名度。與此同時,該計劃還在這個經濟低潮時期創造工作機會,正在招聘雙語而且對中華文化有所認識的人士來擔任導遊,有關招聘的詳情可以與中華文化中心聯絡(415)-986-1822,或將簡歷電郵至fengyuan@c-c-c.org。
