A Little Piece of China in Ardwick

2 Nov

On Friday 22nd October we installed  the China: Journey of the East off-site exhibition in the Manchester Chinese Centre, Ardwick. This is the fourth in a successful series of off-site exhibitions as managed by Andrea Winn Curator of Community Exhibitions.

Jenny Wong, Director of the Manchester Chinese Centre, and some volunteers selected a number of objects from the Manchester Museum Living Cultures collection. The group visited the Living Cultures Asia store and were able to choose from a fantastic array of Chinese objects. The objects on display include a beautiful jade thumbring and a lucky coin sword!

The exhibition will run until the beginning of February 2011 and will hopefully encourage Manchester Chinese Centre users to visit the main China: Journey to East exhibition in the Manchester Museum.
