Age of Empires: Chinese Art of the Qin and Han Dynasties (221 B.C.–A.D. 220)
Monday, April 3–Sunday, July 16
10:00 am–6:00 pm
Metropolitan Museum Of Art

Featuring more than 160 objects of ancient Chinese art, this major international loan exhibition explores the unprecedented role of art in creating a new and lasting Chinese cultural identity. The works in the exhibition—extremely rare ceramics, metalwork, textiles, sculpture, painting, calligraphy, and architectural models—are drawn exclusively from 32 museums and archaeological institutions in the People’s Republic of China, and a majority of the works have never before been seen in the West. Highlights include renowned terracotta army warriors and a striking statue of a seminude performer whose anatomical accuracy, unheard of in Chinese art, brings to mind Greco-Roman sculpture first introduced to Asia by Alexander the Great.


Free with museum admission (Pay-what-you-wish, suggested $25, free/ages 12 & under)
