 2. Imperial Porcelains from the Ming Dynasty

3 pm – 5 pm
Gallery I, Art Museum
The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shatin

The Ming Dynasty marked a golden era of the Jingdezhen porcelain production, and all imperial porcelains were imprinted with reign marks from the Yongle era onwards. However, no example of Ming ceramics from the 18 years of Zhengtong, Jingtai and Tianshun reigns was found. Ceramics scholars call this period the Interregnum. This exhibition, Refilling the Interregnum: Newly Discovered Imperial Porcelains from Zhengtong, Jingtai and Tianshun Reigns (1436-1464) of the Ming Dynasty, will showcase newly discovered imperial porcelains from Zhengtong, Jingtai and Tianshun reigns, as well as pieces from Yongle, Xuande and Chenghua reigns for comparison. Mr Tang Hoi-chiu will shed light on the mystery of this historical period in this guided tour.

Mr Tang Hoi-chiu, former Chief Curator of the Hong Kong Museum of Art, has curated a great number of exhibitions of both Chinese and Western art. He has also served as adjudicator and nominator for local and international art competitions.
