The Oriental Ceramic Society of Hong Kong is delighted to announce a guided viewing of the Hong Kong Palace Museum, Hong Kong’s newest arts and cultural landmark, located at the West Kowloon Cultural District (WKCD). The HKPM features thematic and special exhibitions drawn from the collections of the Palace Museum in Beijing that includes paintings, as well as the architecture and life of the Palace.
The Palace Museum is home to one of the world’s richest collections of Chinese ceramics. Presenting over 150 highlights from the collection, the exhibition ‘Clay to treasure: Ceramics from The Palace Museum collection’ surveys China’s ceramic traditions, with a focus on technical and aesthetic achievements in the Ming and Qing dynasties. The works on display range from everyday household goods to luxuries used by the ruling elite to display their status and taste. These treasures—many on view for the first time in Hong Kong—offer a stunning overview of one of China’s most enduring artistic traditions.
Following the guided viewing, members will be able to remain in the museum to view some of the museum’s other highlighted exhibitions. Members are further encouraged to support the museum by joining the HKPM members or patrons programme. More details can be found here:
