亞歐堂 meet asian art The Colour of Jade and Eternity. 2500 Years of Chinese Celadon Ceramics

14 June 2018 - 13 January 2019

To the Chinese, jade has always been more valuable than silver or gold. In Chinese culture the precious stone with the milky grey-green lustre is seen as a symbol of long life and immortality. The high regard for this material explains the enduring popularity of jade-coloured pottery glazes in China ever since the first millennium BC.

Starting in June 2018, the Museum Angewandte Kunst will be showing a selection of celadon pottery in its meet asian art exhibition and event forum. With pieces produced over a period of two and a half thousand years, this cabinet exhibition will bear impressive witness to the skilful craftsmanship of Chinese potters who used simple, elegant shapes and the unique colour of jade to create objects of great expressive power.

Curator: Dr Stephan von der Schulenburg
