Blue & White:
A Global ProductJanuary 30, 2021 - January 30, 2022 Curated by Heng Wu, AGGV Curator of Asian Art and Michelle Jacques, AGGV Chief Curator
The upcoming AGGV exhibition, Blue and White, opening on January 30, examines blue and white porcelain as a global product that contains diverse cultural traits in its birth, development and thriving. It is truly a fruit of cross-cultural communication and exchange. This exhibition is our initiative in experimenting with new curatorial approaches to our permanent collections by breaking the boundaries that have been artificially placed on these collections, such as Asian vs. Canadian or Historical vs. Contemporary.
