Register now for the next Arts of Asia lecture series and join us as we explore the arts, culture, and history of China. Featuring prominent scholars and curators from across the globe, the 15 Fall lectures will showcase the collection of the Asian Art Museum. These works of art help us understand early Chinese philosophies, religions, technology, trade, and the rise and fall of its great dynasties from pre-history through the end of the Tang dynasty in 906 CE. Lectures will cover China's linguistic, religious, ritual, and artistic structures as well as early China's wide spread economic and cultural clout.
