|Dates:||18 June 2020|
|Times:||14:00 - 15:00|
|What is it:||Webinar|
|Organiser:||Manchester China Institute|
China’s history and geography are wonderfully rich and varied, yet it is neither as self- contained nor as isolated as is often thought. China’s written past and its material culture show interactions with other states in every period, from the Neolithic to the present. This illustrated talk will examine China’s past from some of the earliest archaeological relics and rituals through to the present with modern art and textiles using the collections of the British Museum.
Jessica Harrison-Hall is Head of the China Section, Curator of British Museum and Sir Percival David Collections of Chinese Ceramics, and Decorative Arts at the British Museum. Her research interests are in the visual and material culture of the Song, Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties and China’s global relationships.
Manchester Museum have recently worked with Jessica Harrison-Hall in bringing a Ming Emperor’s garden seat to Manchester as part of a prestigious spotlight loan from the British Museum.
