"2018 Chaozhou International Embroidery Art Biennale" was launched in Chaozhou, South China's Guangdong province, on December 20. It was the first national embroidery art biennale in China and the first international embroidery art biennale in the world as well.

The Biennale has attracted more than 300 designers from 13 countries, namely China, Austria, Poland, Denmark, Germany, South Korea, the Netherlands, Canada, the United States, Norway, Japan, Sweden and Switzerland. This year, the Biennale features three topics: “Life & Fashion”, “Inheritance & Rejuvenation”, and “Integration & Transcendence”, exhibiting nearly 200 works. Gao Yong, Party secretary and secretary general of CNTAC, delivered a speech at the opening ceremony, saying that Chinese embroidery is one of the most outstanding national traditional skills in the world. Chao embroidery originated from Chaozhou.

Artists from abroad and home spoke on the topic of Embroidery and Life Today. Fashion designer and curator Yang Beibei shared her experience of using embroidery into designing as well as her inspiration from the traditional Chinese embroidery. Now, Chao embroidery, with Su embroidery, Shu embroidery and Xiang embroidery, has been listed in the National intangible cultural heritage project in China. It is hoped that this Biennial could pave the way for traditional skills like embroidery entering contemporary life and provide a platform to promote exchanges and cooperation between the embroidery industry at home and abroad. The Biennale will last until January 5, 2019.
