Exhibition “From Silk to Silk Road” Opens at Belgium


From September 29 to October 15, 2021, the exhibition From Silk to Silk Road was held at the Confucius Institute in the Vives University of Applied Sciences, Belgium.

The exhibition is curated by the China National Silk Museum. It starts with "Silk Road Living Room", followed by three parts of "Silk-making Craftmanship", "Silk Art" and "Silk Road", which runs from introducing silk-making craftmanship and displaying silk patterns to the past and present of the Silk Road.

In addition, in order to enable the Belgian people to have a better understanding of the Silk and the Silk Road, the China National Silk Museum has donated to the Vives University of Applied Sciences over two hundred selected books covering silk, the Silk Road, textiles and clothing, Dunhuang art, and the Belt and Road Initiative, which will be exhibited and collected by the Confucius Institute there.
