Vietnam, France co-organise Champa culture exhibition (November 20, 2003)


The central city of Da Nang will co-operate with the French Guimet Museum to open a major exhibition on Champa artifacts in the near future.

The exhibition was initiated by Jean Francois Jarrige, director of the Guimet Museum, during his recent working visit to Da Nang.

Guimet is a prestigious museum for art and culture renowned not only in France but throughout the European Union. Since late 2002, Guimet has co-operated with Da Nang City in carrying out a project to preserve the collections displayed at the Champa Sculpture Museum in Da Nang.

Apart from providing equipment for artifact preservation, Guimet has also sent their experts to help Da Nang City restore many antiques in those collections.
