The sixth China-South Korea-Japan Artistic Design Works Exhibition of University Teachers and Students kicked off in Jiaxing Art Museum, Jiaxing, East China's Zhejiang province, on Nov 26.
The event was sponsored by the design school, international exchange and cooperation department, and academic affairs office of Jiaxing University.
Dai Ming, vice-chairman of the CPPCC Jiaxing Municipal Committee, said at the opening ceremony that the design school of Jiaxing University has played an active role in boosting the development of the fashion industry and rural revitalization in the city in recent years.

Dai expressed his hopes that universities in China, South Korea, and Japan will promote cultural and artistic exchanges to a higher level via the exhibition and that participants will learn from each other.
Zhang Qi, assistant principal of Jiaxing University, noted that the localization and internationalization of design are common subjects faced by the art and design circles in the three countries and that artistic design education in universities is the key to dealing with the subjects.
She expected that more universities from Asia will participate in the following editions of the exhibition.

The annual exhibition received 145 entries from the three countries this year: 60 from China, 66 from South Korea and 19 from Japan.
