Reinterpreting Palace Museum Objects at the Hong Kong Palace Museum
Presented by Hong Kong Palace Museum
This talk will introduce two of the Hong Kong Palace Museum’s opening exhibitions, which centre on the themes of ceramics and the art and culture of the horse. Dr Raphael Wong will talk about the encyclopedic collection of Chinese ceramics from the Palace Museum, Beijing with reference to both iconic exhibits and rarely-seen objects from the collection. Dr Ingrid Yeung will introduce a diverse range of objects in different media from the Palace Museum and the Louvre, exploring the role of the horse in mythology, daily life, military power, and international exchange.
