Jade carving in China and around the world

Wednesday 4 October 2017, 10.00-15.30
Sackler Room A&B

Jade has been prized by the Chinese for more than 7,000 years as the most precious of all materials. This symposium will look at examples of jade from China and elsewhere in the Museum's collection.

The British Museum is acquiring six contemporary jades which will be exhibited in the newly refurbished Sir Joseph Hotung Gallery of China and South Asia and the Selwyn and Ellie Alleyne Gallery of Chinese jade, reopening in November. The Museum's collection also contains remarkable examples of jades from other cultures across the world, allowing illuminating comparisons to be made during the symposium.
