BEIJING nike air vapormax scontate , June 3 -- Flying egrets, slothful capybaras, mighty llamas are just some of the works presented by a Chinese and American artist duo after they visited Ibera Wetlands, Argentina. The exhibition is being held to highlight environmental issues.

"A Summer Rendezvous," which opens in east China's Xiamen City on Saturday -- two days before World Environment Day on June 5, features 45 pieces of work by painter Liu Zhong and photographer Steven Rockefeller Jr.

Liu and Steven went to the Ibera Wetlands Provincial Nature Reserve in March 2016 for seven days.

Elegant and slender marsh deer nike vapormax 2018 scontate , howler monkeys, and Argentina's national emblem the rufous horneroes all come alive in works by the two artists.

Liu said he used his work as a platform to reflect on environmental protection.

"As an artist, I have the responsibility to advocate actions that make our environment better," Liu said. "Only in a sound environment can we produce beautiful works; in return, beautiful works propel us to create a sound environment."

This is the second time Liu and Steven have worked together. In 2015, the pair spent a week in Jackson nike air vapormax 2018 saldi , Wyoming, to capture the natural charm of western America.

"Liu and Steven's works manifest Argentina's picturesque natural scenery and Argentineans' unremitting awareness of environmental protection," said Liu Dawei, chairman of China Artists Association.

"Through communication and exchanges, Liu and Steven are exploring the mission and responsibility of artists," he said.

Gong Tingyu nike air max 2018 donne , vice chairman of the International Council for Caring Communities, said the exhibition transcends art and stands as a declaration of support for environmental protection and lives.

"The governments and people of China and the United States both care about environmental protection. Our efforts to improve the environment will be bound to benefit all human beings and Earth," Gong said.

LONDON, July 27 ( Xinhua) -- The free movement of people between European member states and Britain will end in March 2019, British government ministers said Thursday.

It was the clearest indication so far from Westminster about what will happen when Britain leaves the EU.

Home Office minister Brandon Lewis said the government will outline details of how it would manage immigration after Brexit in a white paper later this year. Proposals would then be included in a parliamentary immigration bill in 2018.

Home Secretary Amber Rudd, however nike air max 2018 uomo , issued in a media interview, an assurance to businesses who employ foreign workers that there will not be a cliff edge.

Rudd said during a visit to South Ayrshire in Scotland that an immigration implementation phase would involve new EU workers registering their details when they come to Britain.

From then EU workers moving to Britain will have to register, at least until a permanent post-Brexit immigration policy is introduced.

"We will ensure we continue to attract those who benefit us economically, socially and culturally. But, at the same time, our new immigration system will give us control of the volume of people coming here nike air max 2018 elite scontate ," said Rudd.

The governing Conservative Party, led by prime minister Theresa May, has pledged to reduce net immigration to "tens of thousands" compared to the several hundred thousand a year currently entering Britain.

Britain's Home Office has asked the Migration Advisory Committee to study the economic and social costs and benefits of EU migration to the UK economy, its impact on competitiveness, and whether there would be benefits to focusing migration on high-skilled jobs.

The committee is expected to report back by September 2018.

The year 2015 is a big one for Laurence Xu.

On Jan 27, Xu became the first Chinese designer to present a catwalk show for two years running at the Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week. From May through August nike air max 2018 saldi , three of his signature dresses will be exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum in New York at its major exhibition China: Through the Looking Glass.

Haute Couture is an expression of French national pride and Parisian self-belief, so the committee has a very tough procedure to approve foreign designers' applications. But Xu's couture impressed the committee so much that he was invited to return.

China: Through the Looking Glass is this year's themed exhibition of the Met's Costume Institute. Anna Wintour, US Vogue's editor-in-chief, and curator Andrew Bolton selected designs for the exhibition that explore how China has fueled Western fashion's imagination. Xu is one of the few Chinese designers who stand alongside some of the biggest names in the industry, such as Tom Ford, John Galliano and Karl Lagerfeld.

"It's my honor to be considered the Chinese representative at such international events nike air max 2018 scontate ," Xu says.

"As a designer, I want to make.
