Event Details:

This exhibition, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Art Museum, is a journey of retrospection and reconstruction from the depths of still waters to the breadth of rivers, leading audiences to delve into the flow of thought of Guangdong cultural elites in relation to arts, culture, and history. It also illustrates the unparalleled efforts and enthusiasm of these pioneers in their quest for applying their learned knowledge of statecraft to practical affairs and attaining a place in the nation’s intellectual community. Featuring around 130 pieces of paintings, calligraphy, and objects by well-known artists during the Ming and Qing dynasties such as Chen Xianzhang, Lin Liang, Zhang Mu and Chen Gongyin, two phases of the exhibition will be held in the spring and autumn of 2021 respectively.


***The Art Museum will resume normal opening hours starting from 23 February 2021 (Tue). Enhanced precautionary measures will be implemented to safeguard the health of visitors and staff members.***
