Event Details:

In the Chinese astrology, 2018 is the year of the Dog. Dog is the first domesticated species in human history, and the only one before settled agriculture was developed. Thus, dog is said to be men’s first friend. In Chinese history, dog is an integral part in various aspects of people’s daily life, such as home guarding, hunting, as well as accompanying and entertainment. Abundant of themes and works of dog were found in Chinese art and literature. Aiming to demonstrate the story of dogs in Chinese culture and history, this exhibition features over ten artifacts from the Warring States period to modern China, taken from the Art Museum and the Hong Kong private collections.
