Miro Ito film screened at Sense for Beauty Across Two Countries exhibition at Tsinghua University Art Museum from Sept. to Dec. 2022
Miro Ito & Media Art League created a 33 min-long film: Nara, Japan’s first imperial capital and the eastern terminus of the Silk Road – a cultural corridor to 1400 years of spiritual tradition, commissioned by Japan’s Agency for Cultural Affairs for the cluster project: Ikasu-Nara Regional Council in Spring 2021.
This film is now being presented at the exhibition co-organised by Nara Prefecture and Tsinghua University to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the normalisation of postwar Sino-Japanese diplomatic relations at the Tsinghua University Art Museum in Beijing—as an integral part of the Sense for Beauty Across Two Countries: Cultural Exchanges Between Japan and China During the Han and Tang Dynasties exhibition—from 24th September to 4th December 2022.
This production concludes 15 years of researching, photographing and filming at the Seven Great Temples and the Kasuga-Taisha Shrine that comprise the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage—Historical Monument of Ancient Nara—the first permanent imperial capital of Japan.
We hope our engagement to promote mutual historical understanding may help us cope with the worsening global crises…
