EXHIBIT OPENING Arts of China: Glimpses of an Ancient Civilization


The Curator Presents… Lisa Claypool: Elegance in Relief: Jades, Bronzes, and Ceramics of China

Lisa Claypool, Associate Professor, History of Art, Design & Visual Culture at the University of Alberta will discuss the meaning of jades, bronzes, and porcelain in the culture of the last dynasty of China (Qing dynasty, 1644-1911), exploring how they were made, circulated, and collected.

Lisa Claypool publishes widely on late imperial and Republican-era visual culture and design in China, and has curated and published a series of essays and interviews about contemporary art. She is currently at work on two projects: a book about the mediation of science through the ink brush in early 20th century China, and; an article about curatorial practices of contemporary artists in China.

Followed by the OFFICIAL OPENING of the new exhibit, Arts of China: Glimpses of an Ancient Civilization [JAN 31 – MAY 19, 2014], organized and circulated by the Royal Ontario Museum.
