"Ordinary Hangzhou: An Exhibit

Local residents will be able to view what it’s like to live in Hangzhous, China — an Indianapolis Sister City. 

A special exhibit “Ordinary Hangzhou” is now on display through Sept. 30 during regular Library hours in the South Display Hall at Central Library, 40 E. St. Clair Street.

The exhibit includes 55 images of what Hangzhou residents eat, and wear, how they live and how they compute.  Hangzhou is the capital of China’s Zhejiang province.

Indianapolis is one of 10 cities worldwide with the exhibit in commemoration of Hangzhou’s hosting of the International Group of Twenty Summit on Sept. 4 and 5. The G20 is an international forum for governments and central bank governors from 20 major economies. It was created as a response both to the financial crisis of 2007–2010 and to a growing recognition that key emerging countries were not adequately included in the core of global economic discussion and governance.
