On 04 July, the Palace Museum of China started exhibiting artefacts in Hong Kong as part of a campaign to increase support for Beijing in the former British colony that returned to Chinese authority 25 years ago. The exhibition, which is located in a seven-story building in a recently constructed harborside arts district, makes extensive use of calligraphy and silk paintings that date back more than 1,000 years. After 30 days, the artworks will be safely returned to Beijing for storage, but China's Communist Party leaders want the exhibition's cultural and political effects to last much longer.
