"The show, titled “Emperor’s Treasures,” will draw upon objects from Taipei’s National Palace Museum, some of which were made by the Han Chinese, Mongol, and Manchu rulers themselves. The exhibition covers a thousand years of this history, with a focus on the sovereigns — eight emperors and one empress — who ruled from the 12th to the 20th century. The carved jasper stone–turned–braised pork will be accompanied by paintings, calligraphy, bronze vessels, ceramics, lacquerware, textiles, enamelware and documents, some making their first appearance in North America."
"Jay Xu, director of the Asian Art Museum, and Li He, associate curator of Chinese art will organize the show, which opens June 17, 2016 and runs through September 18, 2016."
