This event has ended.

Characterized by elegant brush-like carving techniques, bamboo sculptures from the Jiading District of Shanghai express narratives from poetry, books and paintings through their three-dimensional representations. Appreciated for their high artistic value suited to those with literary interests, they were considered a gift to the court in the early days of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1912). The craft was traditionally passed down through blood lines and shared primarily among families and apprentices. In 2006, it was registered as China’s first National Intangible Cultural Heritage. Around 80 bamboo sculptures by contemporary crafts people from Jiading will be on exhibit here.



from February 01, 2018 to February 25, 2018
Exhibition Hours: 10:00-17:00. Closed on Wednesdays.
