Exhibition Watch: New “China,” Porcelain Art from Jingdezhen

Exhibition, Lecture & Symposium At China Institute

Jingdezhen has been a center of porcelain production for centuries

Running from September 21-December 9, 2012, New York’s China Institute will present the exhibition “New ‘China’: Porcelain Art from Jingdezhen, 1910-2012,” exposing a new audience to China’s famed “Porcelain Capital,” Jingdezhen, Jiangxi province. For the launch on September 21, guest co-curators Lili Fang, Director of the Art Anthropology Research Center of the Chinese National Academy of Arts in Beijing and a leading author on Jingdezhen studies, and Nancy Selvage, former Director of the Ceramics Program at Harvard University, will take part in a curator’s lecture at the China Institute discussing the history of Jingdezhen and the work of artists inspired by this famous city.

One day later, the Institute will hold an accompanying symposium, at which a selection of artists and curators will present on topics including “Jingdezhen: History and Development of Contemporary Chinese Porcelain,” “Chinese Porcelain: Contemporary Global Impact on Artists and Education,” and “Contemporary Chinese Porcelain: Curatorial Perspectives.” For anybody interested in traditional and contemporary Chinese ceramic arts, this will be an event not to miss.

The exhibition includes contemporary and traditional porcelain
