We can see, across the great breadth and depth of Chinese history, streams of innovation, effectiveness accomplishment, and beauty. From the Paleolithic era to today, specialist craftspeople, designers and builders have maintained traditions of connecting to higher powers and practicing finely-tuned skills within carving, weaving, wood-working, ceramics, painting, calligraphy, and other artforms.

This exhibition, curated in association with the University of Wollongong, features some highlights of the Chinese collection at the Australian Museum, Sydney. The objects here provide glimpses into some of the great traditions of Chinese creativity, spirituality, governance, warfare, communication, music and calligraphy.
