Detail: Chinese Ceramics from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, comprising works from LACMA’s permanent collection, presents an introduction to Chinese ceramics from c. 2500 BC (Neolithic period) to the 19th century. The exhibition explores Chinese cosmology, religion, history, and society through a survey of the technical development of Chinese ceramics; symbols and narratives embedded in the decoration of Chinese ceramics; and ceramics exported to Japan, Southeast Asia, the Near East, Europe, and the Americas between the 14th and 19th centuries.

On view at the Vincent Price Art Museum (VPAM), this exhibition is created in partnership with VPAM and East Los Angeles Community College (ELAC). The partnership is an important component of On-Site: Neighborhood Partnerships with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.Through this program, LACMA is creating ways to make its collection and programs accessible to the communities of Los Angeles County in hopes of broadening participation in cultural experiences. By building on existing partnerships, establishing new relationships, and seeking community input, LACMA aims to create educational and shared experiences that resonate with community members.
