Art and ritual objects are presented as they would be in an elaborate private household shrine. The new fourth-floor installation of the Shrine Room will more than double the visitor capacity of its current location.

    New From the Imperial Theater: Chinese Opera Costumes of the 18th and 19th Centuries
    Place: The Metropolitan Museum of Art - New York, 1000 Fifth Avenue, USA
    Date: Jun 25, 2016 to Oct 09, 2017
    Detail: Drawn entirely from The Met collection, this exhibition examines these luxury textiles from artistic and technical points of view. It is organized in two rotations. The first focuses on costumes used in dramas based on historical events; and the second will feature costumes from plays derived from legends and myths. The presentation showcases eight robes, each of which was created for a specific role—court lady, official, general, monk, nun, and immortal. A set of album leaves faithfully depicting theatrical characters wearing such robes is also displayed.

    The 18th and 19th centuries witnessed a flowering of Chinese drama. Under the patronage of the Qing court (1644–1911), performances—including the \"Peking Opera\"—filled the Forbidden City in Beijing. A form of traditional Chinese theater, Peking Opera was developed fully by the mid-19th century, and because of the form\'s minimal stage settings and the importance of exaggerated gestures and movements, costume played an unusually significant role.

    This exhibition includes superb examples with interior markings indicating their use in court productions.

    New Cinnabar: The Chinese Art of Carved Lacquer, 14th to 19th Century
    Place: The Metropolitan Museum of Art - New York, 1000 Fifth Avenue, USA
    Date: Jun 25, 2016 to Oct 09, 2017
    Detail: This exhibition, featuring 45 magnificent examples of Chinese carved lacquer drawn entirely from The Met collection, will explore the development of this significant artistic tradition. Among the objects on view will be works created as birthday gifts bearing symbols of long life, such as peaches, cranes, the character for longevity (shou), and representations of children. One of the highlights is a unique, large, lobed tray of the 14th century, carved with a delightful scene showing two women and 33 children. Other early pieces on view include a dish with a scene of long-tailed birds and hollyhocks. A rare screen that was produced by Lu Guisheng—a famous 19th-century artist and one of the few individuals working in lacquer whose name is recorded in Chinese history—provides a spectacular finale to this tradition.

    Lacquer, the resin of a family of trees found in southern China, hardens when exposed to oxygen and humidity and can become a natural plastic. Tinted with cinnabar (red), carbon (black), and other minerals, it has been used as an artistic medium in China since at least the sixth century B.C. Carved lacquer, which involves applying multiple layers of lacquer onto a substructure (usually wood) and then entails carving through the layers, is the most laborious and time-consuming of all lacquering techniques.

    New Colors of the Universe: Chinese Hardstone Carvings
    Place: The Metropolitan Museum of Art - New York, 1000 Fifth Avenue, USA
    Date: Jun 25, 2016 to Oct 09, 2017
    Detail: Hardstone carving is one of the oldest arts in China, dating back to the fifth millennium B.C. It was not until the Qing dynasty, however, that an abundant supply of raw material, extraordinary craftsmanship, and keen imperial patronage allowed the art to flourish. During the 18th century, widespread prosperity and successful military campaigns brought political stability, while also securing the trade routes that permitted the importation of gemstones over the Silk Roads and through sea trade routes from as far away as Europe.

    Showcasing a selection of 75 exquisite carvings drawn from The Met collection, this exhibition presents the lapidary art of China\'s Qing dynasty (1644–1911). Featuring not only jade, the most esteemed of East Asian gems, but also agate, malachite, turquoise, quartz, amber, coral, and lapis lazuli, the exhibition reveals the extensive variety of hardstones and full palette of vibrant colors that were favored at the imperial court. Exploring the diverse subjects and styles of Qing lapidary art, Colors of the Universe illustrates the extraordinary imagination and technical virtuosity behind these miniature sculptures.

    Place: Asian Art Museum of San Francisco - San Francisco, 200 Larkin St, USA
    Date: Jun 28, 2016 to Feb 26, 2017
    Detail: In this intimate exhibition, a selection of paintings from the museum’s collection focuses on three aspects of female power: as devout worshipers; as goddesses and consorts to male gods; and as ascetics (yoginis). The galleries nearby display additional manifestations of the goddess figure in sculptural form.

    New Chinamania
    Place: Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, Smithsonian Institution - Washington, D.C., 1050 Independence Ave SW, USA
    Date: Jul 09, 2016 to Jun 04, 2017
    Detail: A mania for Chinese blue-and-white porcelain swept through London in the 1870s as a new generation of artists and collectors “rediscovered” imported wares from Asia. Foremost among them was American expatriate artist James McNeill Whistler. For him, porcelain was a source of serious aesthetic inspiration. For British shoppers, however, Chinese ceramics signified status and good taste. Cultural commentators of the time both embraced and poked fun at the porcelain craze. Illustrator George du Maurier parodied the fad in a series of cartoons for Punch magazine that documented what he mockingly called “Chinamania.”

    More than a hundred fifty years later, American artist Walter McConnell explores Chinamania in our own time. In this exhibition, he juxtaposes two monumental porcelain sculptures, which he terms stupas, with export wares from China’s Kangxi period (1662–1722). Those blue-and-white ceramics are similar to those that once filled the shelves of Whistler’s Peacock Room in London. These historical porcelains also inspired McConnell to create a new work based on 3D-printed replicas. His interest in replication and in the serialized mass production of ceramic forms began after he visited China more than a decade ago. The large kilns and busy factories at Jingdezhen prompted McConnell to look at China as an enduring resource for ceramic production.

    Chinamania complements the exhibition Peacock Room REMIX: Darren Waterston’s Filthy Lucre, a contemporary installation that reimagines the Peacock Room as a resplendent ruin. Inspired by museum founder Charles Lang Freer’s collection of Asian ceramics, Waterston painted scores of vessels and arranged them on the buckling shelves of Filthy Lucre. These oozing, misshapen ceramics convey a sense of unsustainable luxury and excess. They also echo McConnell’s interest in the interplay of creativity, the mass production of aesthetic objects, and the powerful forces of materialism and conspicuous consumption.

    New A Billion Buddhas: The Awakened Cosmos of Himalayan Buddhism
    Place: Asian Art Museum of San Francisco - San Francisco, 200 Larkin St, USA
    Date: Aug 09, 2016 to Apr 09, 2017
    Detail: We have selected five Tibetan paintings from our collection to illuminate the countless roles that Buddhas play in Himalayan religious thought and practice. You’ll meet the historical Buddha Shakyamuni; the blue Medicine Buddha, who specializes in healing; red Amitabha, who presides over the paradise known as the “Land of Bliss” (Sukhavati); and stunning “meditation deities” (yidam), often depicted as male and female deities in sexual union. According to Tibetan religious doctrine, their symbolism is so powerful that visualizing these meditation deities can produce enlightenment “in this very life.”

    The paintings on view in A Billion Buddhas are thangka paintings, sacred pictures that can be rolled, transported and stored. Because they are fragile and fade easily, they can only be exhibited in our gallery for a limited amount of time. A few of these paintings are on display for the very first time, so don’t miss this rare chance to see them.

    New Asian Art at 100: A History in Photographs
    Place: The Metropolitan Museum of Art - New York, 1000 Fifth Avenue, USA
    Date: Sep 05, 2016 to Oct 11, 2017
    Detail: Since The Metropolitan Museum of Art was founded in 1870, the institution\'s physical space and collection have grown and its curatorial departments have diversified. The first Asian works of art to enter the collection—mostly ceramics and lacquers—were acquired in 1879 and originally accommodated in what was then called the Department of Decorative Arts. Only in 1915 was a separate Department of Far Eastern Art established, and it was not until 1986 that its name was changed to the Department of Asian Art. The timeline presented in the photographs in this exhibition chronicles the changing face of The Met\'s galleries of Asian art as the building\'s footprint has expanded, exhibition styles have evolved, and the collection has grown.

    Forever a work in progress, The Met\'s collection of Asian art is ultimately the product of the passion and scholarship of the many collectors, curators, donors, dealers, and directors who have together shaped the Museum\'s holdings and legacy.

    New Chen Chan Chen
    Place: Honolulu Museum of Art - Honolulu, 900 S Beretania St, USA
    Date: Sep 30, 2016 to Mar 12, 2017
    Detail: The idea for the exhibition Chen Chan Chen began when the three participating artists discovered overlaps among their histories. Their surnames are the same in Chinese characters. All born in the 1950s, they grew up during the years when the Chinese Cultural Revolution took place. Nevertheless, their experiences as Chinese-American women have unfolded in different ways. The artists conceived of a project that would examine what impact this period of history might have had on their individual lives.

    Place: The Metropolitan Museum of Art - New York, 1000 Fifth Avenue, USA
    Date: Oct 20, 2016 to May 14, 2017
    Detail: This tribute to a great collector reveals the distinctive features of Japanese art as viewed through the lens of 50 years of collecting: the sublime spirituality of Buddhist and Shinto art; the boldness of Zen ink painting; the imaginary world conjured up by the Tale of Genji and classical Japanese literature; the sumptuous colors of bird-and-flower painting; the subtlety of poetry, calligraphy, and literati themes; the aestheticized accoutrements of the tea ceremony; and the charming portraiture of courtesans from the \"floating world\" (ukiyo-e).

    New Show and Tell: Stories in Chinese Painting
    Place: The Metropolitan Museum of Art - New York, 1000 Fifth Avenue, USA
    Date: Oct 29, 2016 to Aug 06, 2017
    Detail: In China, paintings that tell stories serve as powerful vehicles to promote political agendas, endorse cultural values, or express personal thoughts. With masterpieces dating from the fourth century, narrative is the earliest established genre in Chinese painting. This exhibition is the first at The Met to explore the various ways in which Chinese artists have gone beyond mere illustration to convey multiple layers of meaning.

    Displaying works from the 12th century to the present, this exhibition introduces three distinct modes of pictorial storytelling: multipart illustrations presented in long handscrolls, often punctuated with passages of text; single iconic scenes that evoke an entire story; and generic landscapes or flower-and-bird paintings that acquire narrative significance through the artist\'s inscription. The exhibition is further organized by theme: historical events, seasonal progression, warfare, journeys, Buddhist and Confucian values, and family and friendship. One special gallery focuses on a grandiose military narrative—that of China\'s annexation of East Turkestan in the 1750s. The installation, a collaboration among three Museum departments, features a suite of European engravings alongside Chinese weaponry and a painting to show how an emperor exploited art for his own aggrandizement.

    Contemporary Chinese artists have continued the narrative tradition with an expanded repertoire of subjects and approaches. The examples on display range from reflections on the creative process to critiques of modern technology and government policies. Together, the approximately 60 pictorial works and 30 decorative art objects, most from The Met collection, present a comprehensive view of the narrative genre, demonstrating its expressive versatility and continuing relevance.

    New The Sculptural Turn: Contemporary Japanese Ceramics from the Kempner and Stein Collection
    Place: Asian Art Museum of San Francisco - San Francisco, 200 Larkin St, USA
    Date: Nov 09, 2016 to Jun 04, 2017
    Detail: Contemporary Japanese artists are taking a number of turns—from functional forms, from apprenticeships, from traditional materials, and from exclusively male production—to shape sculptural ceramics.

    The Sculptural Turn showcases the work of fourteen Japanese clay artists, all born after World War II, whose work expands on early twentieth-century experimental forms. Unlike previous generations of Japanese potters who learned exclusively from master craftsmen, these artists studied in universities and in many cases came to ceramics after exploring other fields. They are masters of technique, material, and concept. Their practices are informed by various cosmopolitan sources, even when they are part of a longstanding family lineage or regional tradition. Drawn together by collectors with an eye for abstract, minimalist, and expressionistic contemporary art, this exhibition tells a story of the changing character of clay in Japan.

    New Jitish Kallat: Covering Letter
    Place: Philadelphia Museum of Art - Philadelphia, 2600 Benjamin Franklin Pkwy, USA
    Date: Nov 13, 2016 to Mar 05, 2017
    Detail: Covering Letter is an immersive installation and video projection by Mumbai-based artist Jitish Kallat. Projected onto a traversable curtain of cascading fog, this work presents a historical letter by Mahatma Gandhi to Adolf Hitler, written just weeks before the start of World War II. In the spirit of his doctrine of universal friendship, Gandhi begins the letter with the greeting “Dear friend.” Mist diffuses Gandhi’s projected text, echoing the fate of his message, which went unheeded.

    Jitish Kallat describes this correspondence as a plea from a great advocate of peace to one of the most violent individuals who ever lived. It is equally an open invitation for self-reflection, as its scrolling words speak to the extreme violence in the world today.

This exhibition, drawn from The Met collection and private collections, features 25 watercolor paintings, augmented by musical instruments and archival photographs.

    New Celebrating the Year of the Rooster
    Place: The Metropolitan Museum of Art - New York, 1000 Fifth Avenue, USA
    Date: Jan 25, 2017 to Jul 04, 2017
    Detail: Each of the 12 animals in the zodiac corresponds to a year in a repeating 12-year cycle that makes up the traditional East Asian lunar calendar. The association of these zodiac animals with the Chinese calendar first appeared in the third century B.C., and became firmly established by the first century. In sequence, the 12 animals are: rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, ram, monkey, rooster, dog, and pig. Each animal is believed to embody certain traits that are personified by the character of the people born in that year. This Lunar New Year, beginning on January 29, is the Year of the Rooster. Since the rooster is an early riser, people born in the year of the rooster are thought to be diligent and industrious.

    Archaeological finds date the rooster\'s domestication to prehistoric times. The rooster is also one of the six animals (liuchu) recorded in the Chinese classics; the other five are the horse, ox, sheep, dog, and pig, each of which plays an essential role in the life of humans. According to Chinese legend, there is a heavenly rooster in the land of the immortals that lives in a peach tree on top of Taodu Mountain. It crows when the sun casts its first rays on the tree, thus awakening the whole world. The rooster is also an auspicious figure, because its crowing brings out the sun and dispels the darkness. Consequently, roosters have been a popular motif in Chinese art since ancient times. A few choice examples from The Met collection are featured here.

    Date: Jan 30, 2017 to Jul 09, 2017
    Detail: Like all Buddhas (fully enlightened beings), the Cosmic Buddha, a life-size limestone figure of Vairochana, is wrapped in the simple robe of a monk. What makes this sixth-century Chinese object exceptional are the detailed narrative scenes that cover its surface, representing moments in the life of the Historical Buddha as well as the Realms of Existence, a symbolic map of the Buddhist world. With help from the Smithsonian’s Digitization Program Office, the Cosmic Buddha also exists as a 3D model, enabling scholars to study the work as never before and providing worldwide access to this masterpiece of Buddhist sculpture. Body of Devotion is an interactive installation that explores not only the work itself, but also the evolving means and methods of studying sculpture, from rubbings and photographs to the technological possibilities of today.

    New Voice of the Thunder Dragon
    Place: 263 Bowery - New York, 263 Bowery, New York, USA
    Date: Feb 11, 2017 to Feb 28, 2017
    Detail: Voice of the Thunder Dragon
    The First Group Exhibition of Bhutanese Contemporary Art in the US
    Exhibition Dates: February 11 – 28, 2017
    Opening Reception: February 11, 2017

    Voice of the Thunder Dragon presents works from four visual artists who are pioneering contemporary visual art in Bhutan. It is the first group exhibition of Bhutanese contemporary art in the United States. The show is comprised of 25 paintings by artists Asha Kama, Pema “Tintin” Tshering, Phurba Namgay, and Gyempo Wangchuk, whose diverse practices offer unique insight into the Himalayan kingdom’s burgeoning contemporary art scene. The pop-up exhibit opens at 263 Bowery on February 11, 2017 and is on view until February 28, 2017.

    Bhutan, nestled in the Western portion of the Himalayan mountain range, is one of the last surviving Himalayan kingdoms. Although small in size, particularly in comparison to its land neighbors India and China, Bhutan is becoming an increasingly powerful voice in the call for conservation of traditional identities, the protection of natural resources, and the importance of happiness in political models. Bhutan has long resisted the forces of modernity, globalization, and industrialization, maintaining isolationist policies and a close connection to its traditional culture. Within the aesthetic system of Bhutanese traditional art, the art object functions as a tool to provide the viewer greater access to spiritual Enlightenment. The works on view offer an alternative, oscillating between contemporary and traditional Bhutanese modes of aesthetic representation.

    New Sa Peng at Agora Gallery NYC!
    Place: Agora Gallery - New York, 530 West 25th St, Chelsea, New York, USA
    Date: Feb 14, 2017 to Mar 07, 2017
    Detail: NEW YORK, NY – Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature the original work of Chinese artist Sa Peng in Mélange of Milieu. The exhibition opens February 14, 2017 and runs through March 7, 2017 with an opening reception on Thursday, February 16 from 6-8 pm. Any art lover who enjoys thought-provoking artworks and meeting talented and interesting artists is encouraged to attend.

    About the Artist

    While Sa Peng works in mediums that range from woodblock prints to sculpture, she says that oil painting is the “primary language” she uses in her work. In her images, the soft, rich colors that oils provide are used in a surprisingly powerful way. Creating strikingly textured abstract works as well as intimate portraits of people, the artist is skilled at balancing those soft tones with bursts of bright color or sharply rendered effects of light and shadow, leading the viewer’s eye through the image and giving each scene or human subject a strong sense of life.

    That feeling of life is further enhanced by Peng’s eye for line and composition. Each painting has a firmly grounded sense of space and proportion, bringing the viewer into the artist’s world. Expressing that world is central to her process. “I draw on my personal memories, emotions and experiences,” she says, “treating them as residents in my imaginary world and allowing them to develop organically on their own.” That complex interaction between artist and subject gives her paintings their unique, dynamic quality.

    Born in 1993 in mainland China, Sa Peng moved to Vancouver, Canada when she was 14 years old. She came to New York alone in 2012, where she currently lives and works.

    About the Exhibition

    Mélange of Milieu: Defying Category

    This February Agora Gallery presents Mélange of Milieu, a group exhibition highlighting the newest ways to bend genre practiced by artists working today. The eight featured artists hail from the Ukraine, Switzerland, Austria, Japan, and the United States - among others - yet have much to say to each other. The hazy, Impressionistic landscape paintings on one wall seem to both inform and take cues from the brash figural paintings on the next. Mélange of Milieu is unique in the current crop of gallery shows for featuring sculpture as prominently as painting, or indeed any works on paper. The exhibition makes a conscious effort to include a range of three-dimensional works, the result being an unusually revealing look at the field. There are highly realistic bronze figurines of invented animals, sleek and gestural depictions of the moving body in stone, and assemblages of brightly colored wooden blocks that have been both painted and embroidered, in a way, to evoke the patterns of the cosmos.

    New Yoshiko Kanai: Bridging East and West with Colorful Thread
    Place: Agora Gallery - New York, 530 West 25th St, Chelsea, New York, USA
    Date: Feb 14, 2017 to Mar 07, 2017
    Detail: NEW YORK, NY – Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature the original work of Japanese artist Yoshiko Kanai in Mélange of Milieu. The exhibition opens February 14, 2017 and runs through March 7, 2017 with an opening reception on Thursday, February 16 from 6-8 pm. Any art lover who enjoys thought-provoking artworks and meeting talented and interesting artists is encouraged to attend.

    About the Artist

    The mixed media art of Japanese artist Yoshiko Kanai is both a poignant tribute to traditional Japanese art and a beautiful expression of the many ways in which our global cultures intersect to create new and lovely themes and contextual meanings. Kanai’s art is unique, in that she uses acrylic paints on small wood pieces and then wraps them with threads to form a variety of visual effects. Each pattern contains its own visual connotation, inspired by nature and the modern world in both physical and metaphysical ways.

    Although she studied and worked in the United States for decades, today Yoshiko Kanai lives and works in Yugawara, Japan. Her art, in a way, reflects this journey... inspired at once by an early 20th century NYC thread factory and Japanese artistic traditions. As the artist explains quite eloquently, "My work is a reflection of my life. It contains everything about myself in the present and the past strung through by a long piece of thread. Now, these beautiful threads will lead me to new creative possibilities."

Selected objects illustrate the story of the active exchange of goods, ideas, and culture in Asia more than one thousand years ago. The exhibition will bring to light how this discovery—one of the most important archaeological revelations of the twentieth century—has changed the way we understand ninth-century Asia.

    Secrets of the Sea: A Tang Shipwreck and Trade in Early Asia is jointly organized with the Asian Civilisations Museum, Singapore. Objects are from the Khoo Teck Puat Gallery, Asian Civilisations Museum, Singapore. The Tang Shipwreck Collection was made possible by the generous donation of the Estate of Khoo Teck Puat in honor of the Late Khoo Teck Puat.

    New A Third Gender: Beautiful Youths in Japanese Prints
    Place: Japan Society - New York, 333 East 47th Street, USA
    Date: Mar 10, 2017 to Apr 10, 2017
    Detail: In many societies, gender has been defined according to a binary framework based on biological sex. In Edo-period Japan (1603-1868), however, several additional factors were taken into account, including age and appearance. Fundamental to this structure were attractive male youths termed wakashu: neither men nor women, wakashu constituted a distinct “third gender,” occupying their own place within the social hierarchy. Organized by the Royal Ontario Museum, A Third Gender is the first exhibition in North America to focus on the portrayal of wakashu in Japanese art, shedding light on the complex rules that governed gender constructs during the Edo period. Featuring over 65 woodblock prints, as well as paintings, luxury objects, and personal ornaments, this groundbreaking exhibition offers a critical artistic and historical context for considering gender performance and sexual expression—topics that are particularly resonant within contemporary society.

    New Inventing Utamaro: A Japanese Masterpiece Rediscovered
    Place: Smithsonian Institution - Washington, D.C., 1050 Independence Ave SW, USA
    Date: Apr 08, 2017 to Jul 09, 2017
    Detail: In 2014, the Okada Museum of Art in Hakone, Japan, made an announcement that startled the art world. The new arts center revealed it had discovered a long-lost painting by Kitagawa Utamaro (1753–1806), a legendary but mysterious Japanese artist.

    Titled Snow at Fukagawa, the immense work is one of three paintings by Utamaro that idealize famous pleasure districts in Edo (now Tokyo). This trio reached the Paris art market in the late 1880s and was quickly dispersed. Museum founder Charles Lang Freer acquired Moon at Shinagawa in 1903. Cherry Blossoms at Yoshiwara passed through several hands in France until the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art in Hartford, Connecticut, purchased it in the late 1950s. And Snow at Fukagawa had been missing for nearly seventy years before it resurfaced in Hakone.

    For the first time in nearly 140 years, these paintings reunite in Inventing Utamaro at the Freer|Sackler, the only location to show all three original pieces. Contextualizing them within collecting and connoisseurship at the turn of the twentieth century, the exhibition explores the many questions surrounding the paintings and Utamaro himself.

    New Company School Painting in India (ca. 1770–1850)
    Place: The Metropolitan Museum of Art - New York, 1000 Fifth Avenue, USA
    Date: Apr 10, 2017 to Oct 01, 2017
    Detail:

    As the British East India Company expanded its purview in India beyond trade to include diplomacy and administration, greater numbers of officers, and eventually their families, were stationed in the region. Many became active patrons of the arts, giving rise to the so-called Company School of painting—or simply Company painting—of the 18th and 19th centuries.

    Responding to their patrons\' European tastes, scientific interests, and sense of discovery, Indian artists—some previously trained in late-Mughal techniques of painting—evolved their styles to create large-scale images of India\'s flora, fauna, people, and landscape. While formal natural studies comprise a major genre of Company painting, other idioms, such as the picturesque—which offered romanticized views of landscape and architecture—also flourished.

    This exhibition brings together works from The Met collection that have never before been shown together and features the debut of two recent acquisitions.

    New Hong Ling - Selected
    Place: Museum of East Asian Art - Bath, 12 Bennett Street, United Kingdom
    Date: Feb 25, 2017 to Jul 02, 2017
    Detail: MEAA is delighted to host a small selection of paintings from the Hong Ling retrospective exhibition touring Europe.

    The exhibition begins with early works from the late 1980s when Hong Ling completed his graduate training in western oil painting at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing (CAFA). In the 1990s, his work was richly informed by his extensive travels across China, Asia, and many remote parts of the world. During this time, Hong Ling also started setting up his studio residence in the region of Mount Huangshan, a picturesque UNESCO World Heritage Site, in Anhui Province in eastern China. Since then, he has focussed exclusively on landscape painting, encapsulating the traditions of Chinese aesthetic philosophies with western painting medium. Working in parallel studios in Huangshan and Beijing, devoted to both oil and ink painting, Hong Ling’s works tell the story of one artist’s embrace of the natural world, his personal development, and his versatile creativity.

    Shiqu Baoji was the name given to the catalogues of the Qing dynasty imperial collection of Chinese painting and calligraphy during the Qianlong period.

This exhibition features 13 works selected from the Xubaizhai Collection that were previously in the imperial collection. The exhibition also highlights the significant role of Hong Kong as refuge and in conservation of China's cultural heritage during the last century.

    New Seeking the Beauty of Japanese Glass: The Bindeisha Collection
    Place: Miho Museum - Shigaraki, Shiga, 300, Tashiro Momodani, Japan
    Date: Mar 18, 2017 to Jun 18, 2017
    Detail: Though there are countless outstanding glassworks in the world, is there anything more ephemeral and delicate than vidro from the Edo period (1600-1868) with its indescribable sublime color? The artisans who handled the glass, melted in the flames, created intricate variations with their craft and skill. The differences created by the air blown into the bottles, the subtle gradations of blue, green, and pruple, the exquisite color composition of marble glass, the gentle feel of the surface, and each facet cut carefully with a metal file all give Japanese glass a soft cut unlike the lines made by cutting wheels.

    Ronin Gallery is honored to present Munakata and the Disciples of Buddha during Asia Week 2017. This exhibition invites you to experience the woodblock prints of Shiko Munakata (1903 - 1975) and to discover the Buddhist roots of Japanese woodblock printing. Culminating in his iconic series Ten Great Disciples of the Buddha, the exhibition explores the vital interplay of artistic tradition and religious practice behind Munakata’s groundbreaking work. Starting with the origins of Japanese woodblock printing in the 12th century, to the ukiyo-e prints of the Edo and Meiji periods, the exhibition Munakata and the Disciples of Buddha places this innovative master of modern woodblock printmaking within centuries of tradition. Also on exhibit will be an exceptionally rare calligraphy kakejiku (scroll painting) by Munakata from the private collection of Munakata\'s granddaughter, Yoriko Ishii, as well as other important hand-colored works.

He breaks the landscapes down into their constituent elements, then reconstructs them, selectively, into tableaux.

    New Encounters Between Chinese and Western Art
    Place: The Museum of East Asian Art - Bath, 12 Bennett Street, United Kingdom
    Date: May 19, 2017
    Detail: Speaker: Dr Zhu Ling (Chinese painting specialist, Lyon & Turnbull)

    Western art has provided a significant impetus for the transformation of Chinese painting in the modern period. Almost every Chinese painter who has achieved fame in the 20th cent. has lived in Europe, or at least studied Western art in China.

    There are two waves to this Chinese absorption of Western influence: one in the 1920s and 1930s, the other in the 1980s after the Cultural Revolution.

    This talk discusses the works of some key twentieth-century Chinese artists and how they injected new blood into the tradition of Chinese painting by incorporating this Western influence.

    New Chinese Gardens – History, Design and Meanings
    Place: The Museum of East Asian Art - Bath, 12 Bennett Street, United Kingdom
    Date: Jun 02, 2017
    Detail: Speaker: Dr Alison Hardie

    The fascination with Chinese gardens has lasted for centuries. Miniature worlds built for pleasure, escape, or to impress, they reflect the ideological harmony and balance that could exist between man and nature.

    Dr Hardie will explain the historical development of Chinese gardens, relating this to parallel or contrasting developments in European garden history, along with the different types of Chinese gardens. The cosmological ideas and design principles underlying the layout and features of Chinese gardens will also be explored, as well as the social significance and uses of Chinese gardens, particularly in the late imperial period.

    New Japanese Art from a German private collection
    Place: Auctionata - Berlin, Franklinstrasse 13, Germany
    Date: Mar 22, 2017
    Detail: In this auction Auctionata is honored to present an outstanding selection of Japanese art works from an important German private collection. The collection of rare tea ceramics has been exhibited and published for the most part. Beside the highly sought-after Oribe Ware, like a rare large sake bottle from the early 17th century, the auction offers pottery from the Mino kilns and Karatsu ware which had been influenced by Korean traditions.

    The exceptional range of works in this collection gives also evidence of the renewal of Japanese pottery traditions during the first decades of the 20th century by famous studio ceramists like Tomimoto Kenkichi and Kato Tokurō. The highly individual collection is complemented by tea utensils like Kōro, Natsume and dishes for the Kaiseki meal. The splendid selection of Japanese paintings from the 16th to the 20th centuries includes works in the neo-traditional Nihonga style, like a work by the eminent painter Domoto Inshō, making this auction a unique chance for the collector.
