Themed as “Beyond Time”, an exhibition in memory of Audrey Hepburn opens in Beijing Chaoyang Joy City from December 12th to February 20th. The exhibition organized by Shanghai Calanstar Culture Co. Ltd is paying tribute to the late Hollywood actress’ elegance and nobleness.
The exhibition, spread over two-stories, is filled with memorabilia and imaginative art. The “time-tunnel” corridor, decorated by mirrors, tinfoil hangings and suspended postcards of Hepburn, is a mesmerizing tribute to both her Hollywood heyday and later humanitarian work. The exhibition also features several replicas, including the scooter she rode while starring in “Roman Holiday” and her black sleeveless dress from “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”. These replicas serve to remind us of the iconic movies that continue to fuel her eternal popularity.
Sun Wen, the exhibition’s liaison from Shanghai Calanstar Culture Co. Ltd said that the beauty of Audrey Hepburn has been appreciated by both the western and eastern audiences, and she is really a nice and good-hearted person.
Starting from her film “Roman Holiday”, Hepburn won immense popularity from people around the world. In 1989, she was appointed to be UNICEF’s Goodwill Ambassador. In the following years, she paid many visits to underdeveloped countries, including, Ethiopia, Guatemala and Bangladesh, where she helped children suffering from starvation and women afflicted by disease, poverty and severe gender inequality.
