The Art of Red: A Reflection on Chinese Culture and Society
The central idea behind this art gallery is the color Red, which holds a significant cultural and symbolic meaning in China. Known as the “good luck color,” it is often associated with bringing happiness and prosperity to individuals and families.
In Chinese culture, Red is a ubiquitous presence during important festivals and ceremonies, where it is used to decorate homes, streets, and buildings, creating a vibrant and festive atmosphere. On the other hand, it is strictly prohibited during funerals, where white is the traditional color of mourning.
In addition to its cultural significance, Red also has political implications in China as it is closely associated with the Chinese Communist government. The use of Red in propaganda and official state imagery has helped reinforce its association with power and authority.
The pictures displayed in this gallery are the works of the photographer Matteo Damiani.
