The exhibition introduces more than 100 calligraphic works in Han (Chinese script) and Nom (Vietnamese ideographic script) by 100 calligraphers at home and abroad.

The works on display praise Vietnam’s tradition of respecting teachers and talented people and the tranquil beauty of historical monuments throughout the country.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, Deputy Director of the Hanoi municipal Department of Culture and Sports Tran Thi Van Anh said that the exhibition introduces to the public the ideological, cultural and aesthetic values of Vietnamese poems and literature, through the art of calligraphy.

The event also aimed to gather those who share a passion for calligraphy, and called on their joint efforts to safeguard and uphold traditional cultural values, she stated.

She expressed her hope that the exhibition will provide visitors with a deeper understanding of Vietnamese culture, which has been preserved and promoted throughout the journey from tradition to modernity.
