The China Institute, located at 100 Washington Street, has a new gallery exhibition open for the summer: Dream of the Kings: A Jade Suit for Eternity.
This solo exhibition from Xuzhou Museum, debuting in the U.S. for the first time, displays more than 100 newly-excavated artifacts of jade, terracotta soldiers, and bronzes from the Western Han dynasty (206 BCE-8 CE). Featuring the country’s best golden-threaded jade burial suit, the exhibition explores the long-enduring Chinese belief in eternal afterlife.
The China Institute offers programs on education, culture, business and art since 1926 to advance a deeper understanding of China
The exhibit will run through November 12. The Institute is open Monday-Friday 10am – 5pm. On Thursdays, it is open until 8 pm and is free from 6 pm until closing. On Saturdays the Institute is open from 11 am – 5 pm. Tickets are free for members, $10 for adults, $5 for seniors and students, and free for children under 16.
