Heaven and Earth in Chinese Art: Treasures from the National Palace Museum, Taipei

Another beauty from AGNSW, this exhibition will transport you a world away. Heaven and Earth in Chinese Art brings together over 150 pieces of Chinese art from the National Palace Museum of Taipei. It’s the first exhibition of its kind in Australia, and will feature an array of works, from paintings and calligraphy to illustrated books, bronzes, ceramics and woodcarvings. The attention to detail is insane. The must-see work is the Meat-shaped stone. Dating from the Qing dynasty (1644-1911), it’s considered one of the museum’s top three treasures and is rarely loaned out. Lucky us!
