Shanghai Museum: 60th Anniversary Exhibitions

Founded in 1952 with a collection of several thousand works, Shanghai Museum has grown to be one of the country’s leading museums of early Chinese art. Its collection now comprises some 120,000 works of art, across 21 categories, with particular strengths in bronzes, ceramics, paintings and calligraphy. In 2012, the museum celebrates its 60th anniversary with a series of historic exhibitions. Of particular note is one featuring outstanding Yuan period paintings and calligraphy from the museum’s internationally renowned collection alongside exceptional works from the collections of four US institutions: The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Cleveland Museum of Art, The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. An exhibition of Yuan dynasty blue-and-white porcelain from museums in China and overseas is equally groundbreaking. Joyce Zhang Hui met with Director Chen Xiejun, Vice Director Chen Kelun, and Director of Chinese Paintings and Calligraphy Shan Guolin to discuss the anniversary events
