The National Palace Museum, Taipei, holds one of the finest selections of Chinese art in the world. The treasures of the National Palace Museum are rarely seen outside Taipei.

Drawing on this exceptional collection, Heaven and earth in Chinese art celebrates the rich heritage of Chinese cultures through the ancient Chinese concept of tian ren he yi — unity or harmony between heaven, nature and humanity. The exhibition presents over 80 artworks of outstanding beauty including paintings, calligraphy, illustrated books, bronzes, ceramics, jade, and wood carvings.

Our viewing will be led by Yin Cao, The Art Gallery of NSW's Curator of Chinese Art. This is the first exhibition from the National Palace Museum, Taipei to come to Australia and the Art Gallery of New South Wales is the exclusive venue. 

Following the tour you are welcome to join us for lunch in the Member’s Lounge (own expense).
