在今年的亚裔文化节 (explorASIAN festival) 期间,温哥华亚裔文化月协会联袂大温哥华中华文化中心为观众呈现【跨越丝绸之路】——一个庆祝过去和未来多元文化交流和共融的摄影展。

“古代的丝绸之路连接了亚洲与欧洲大陆,开通新的贸易往来,打开了新的思路,同时也导致了人们的迁移和冲突。自然形成的一个商业网络使各社会之间建立联系、做出改变和增强适应力。虽然君王们下令修建高墙并派军队控制这些接触和交流,但是信仰和文化依然穿透了沙漠、绿洲和海洋。丝绸之旅是个艰难的历程,它需要人们具有技巧、力量和谈判的能力。现在的世界已经今非昔比,当初用数月或几年才能到达的地方,现在只需点击几下鼠标即可做到。高速的互联网使我们的交流更容易了,丝绸之路这个古老的传统交易方式,始终影响着我们的日常生活并帮助我们更好地交流互动。

【跨越丝绸之路】摄影展将呈现亚洲丝绸之路商业网络的沿途景象,以及丝绸之路文化在温哥华的印象——展现古代之路与我们现代生活的连接。这次展览提供给我们机会去发掘和瞭解更多温哥华本地的亚洲文化。参展图片融汇成一个摄影大篷车,打开我们的想象,激发我们寻找更多本地有趣多元文化的所在。” -策展人: Leticia Sanchez

During explorASIAN 2016 Vancouver Asian Heritage Month Society in partnership with Chinese Cultural Centre of Greater Vancouver presents Following the Silk Routes and Beyond in Vancouver, an interactive photographic exhibition celebrating the past and present of exchange and multiculturalism.

Societies connect, change, and adapt thanks to the networks we naturally create. The ancient silk routes that connected Asia and the European continent opened doors to trade, new ideas, migration, and sometimes conflicts. Even when emperors ordered to build walls, and sent armies to control these exchanges, beliefs and culture trickled through sandy deserts, oases, and oceans.

Traveling the Silk Routes then was not easy; it required skill, strength, and the ability to negotiate.The world today has shrunk and what used to take months or even years to reach a destination is now a finger click away. Fast internet and web networks have made our exchanges so easy that we barely think about the past, but the legacy of the ancient trading ways, echoes in our everyday lives helping us interact better, and more than ever in today’s world.

“Following the Silk Routes and Beyond in Vancouver” will portray visual examples of spaces and commercial networks in Asia and Vancouver, connecting the ancient routes to our modern life. It will give us the opportunity to find more about Asian cultures in local spaces here in Vancouver. It promises to be a photographic caravan that will open our imagination and tickle our curiosity to find some interesting places and exchanges right here in Vancouver.
