Honouring Tradition and Heritage: Min Chiu Society at Sixty

Overview

Commemorating its 60th anniversary this year, the Min Chiu Society, formed by a group of art collectors in Hong Kong, has been an important cultural force devoted to fostering intellectual exchange and collecting, studying and promoting Chinese art. Guided by its founding ethos––"an earnest pursuit of classic knowledge, with a passion for antiquity"––the Society's art collections are eclectic, ranging from Chinese paintings and calligraphy, ceramics, jade, glass, lacquer wares, carvings in bamboo and wood, furniture, textiles as well as China Trade arts. This exhibition will present the very best of Chinese art from the collections of Society members. Over 300 works of art will be featured, bringing the artistic and cultural taste of Chinese imperial courts and literati across generations.
