Bowdoin Chinese bronzes

Dear CAFAM members,

The newly renovated Bowoin College Museum of Art is opening an exhibition of ancient Chinese bronzes on September 1.

The exhibition features 60 magnificent bronze vessels and monumental bells from the middle banks of the Yangzi River in southern China that were cast between 1300 B.C.E. and 221 B.C.E. Recent excavations have radically altered contemporary perspectives on the art and culture of one of the cradles of the Chinese civilization.

The exhibition is organized by the China Institute, New York, in cooperation with the Hunan Provincial Museum.

A series of lectures will be presented in conjunction with the exhibition. The first, “Along the Yangzi River: Regional Culture of the Bronze Age from Hunan” by Jay Xu, director of the Asian Art Music in San Francisco, will be presented at 4:30 p.m., Thursday, September 22, in Kresge Auditorium, Visual Arts Center.

Best regards,

Craig
