In 2021 the OCS visited the Chinese University Art Museum for a guided viewing of the exhibition ‘Enchanting Expeditions: Chinese Trade Porcelains across the Globe’. We were fortunate to have the expertise of the curator, Dr Wang Guanyu, as our guide to this superbly curated and expansive exhibition. At the time, the exhibition’s publication had not yet been published. We are therefore delighted now to be able to invite Dr Wang to present a talk based on her research and findings in the course of preparing the exhibition.
In advance of this talk, we encourage you to visit the exhibition which will remain on view until 21 August 2022. The exhibition is divided into six themed sections, which showcase the material culture of the maritime trade and the different kilns and manufactures in China that were involved in the trade. The details of the exhibition that were published for our previous guided tour can be viewed here.
Dr Wang graduated from Peking University, majoring in Field Archaeology and Ceramics Archaeology at the School of Archaeology and Museology, and got her Ph.D. at the Department of Fine Arts, CUHK. She participated in archaeological works at the Qin mausoleum and Ding Kiln sites, which were awarded respectively as the top ten archaeological discoveries of China in 2006 and 2009.
