Come to the green and leafy Chinese University campus for a morning at the Art Museum to view Chinese furniture and contemporary art.

Simplicity and Splendour: Chinese Furniture from the 18th to 20th Century

We are delighted that Dr. Xu Xiaodong, Associate Director of the Art Museum, will give us a guided tour of the Art Museum's exhibition, "Simplicity and Splendour: Chinese Furniture from the 18th to 20th Century". The exhibition features 30 sets of furniture, some Beijing style but mainly Canton style which was the Chinese style of furniture that showed the earliest influence of European features in its designs. The exhibition also includes a stunning 12 panel late Kangxi Coromandel lacquer screen gifted to the Museum by The Friends.

The exhibition also includes a selection of the Museum's collection of sets of Export Paintings.

We expect this guided tour will last approximately one hour with Q&A.

"Nowhere", the Graduate Art Show
There will also be an opportunity to view the Graduate Art Exhibition of 14 students from the Master of Fine Arts programme. The exhibition has been inspired by ideas and concepts from the short story, "The Garden of Forking Paths" , by Argentinian writer and poet, Jorge Luis Borges. The works reflect the students' experiences over the past two years. At least one of the artists will be on hand to show us around the exhibition.

And...for those of you who have still not visited the wonderful Ren Bonian Exhibition, it is still on view at the Museum.

So do join us on 27th July!
