What's on > Historical Expression of Chinese Art
chinese art, canberra exhibition

This Australian-first exhibition explores the breadth and tradition of Chinese calligraphy and painting through artworks from the National Museum of China’s collection.

See exquisite paintings by three Chinese modern artists — Xie Yun, Xiao Lang and Wang Naizhuang — and a rare copy of an extraordinary 20-metre-long 18th-century scroll documenting Emperor Qianlong’s 1751 tour to the southern provinces. A mesmerising and immersive animation brings the story of the scroll and its historical figures to life in intricate three-dimensional detail.

The National Museum of Australia’s Harvest of Endurance pictorial scroll, painted in the traditional gongbi style and representing two centuries of Chinese contact with, and migration to, Australia forms a companion element of the exhibition, with eight of its 50 metres on display.
