Gallery II, Art Museum, Institute of Chinese Studies, The Chinese University of Hong Kong


Event Details:

The history of Chinese Ceramics is a long one. As an indispensable part of the nation’s excellent cultural heritage, ceramics witnesses the development of China’s science, technology, culture and its cultural-economic exchanges with other civilizations of the ancient world. The exhibition features a fine selection of ceramics dating from the Neolithic to late-Qing period in the Art Museum’s collection. Thanks to the support of generous donors over the years, the Art Museum has been able to build up a comprehensive collection of ceramics and over 200 pieces will be on display in phases at the present exhibition. It is our hope that the present exhibition will further facilitate teaching and research through actual objects and provide our visitors with a better understanding of the development of Chinese culture through ceramics.
