Palace Museum and Cultural Exchanges between China and the Rest of the World
Presented by Hong Kong Palace Museum
Since the opening of the Hong Kong Palace Museum in July, over 300,000 visitors have come to admire the precious Palace Museum collection. Many objects from the collection represent cultural exchanges between China and the rest of the world during the Ming and Qing dynasties in areas such as craftsmanship, technology, ideology and religion. These interactions demonstrate the collision and integration of Chinese and western cultures. Dr Louis Ng, Director of the Hong Kong Palace Museum, will utilize objects from the Palace Museum collection to examine cultural exchanges during Ming and Qing dynasties. He will also share the vision of the Hong Kong Palace Museum as a platform for art and cultural exchanges between China and the world.
