New Chinese Galleries
Explore the Philadelphia Museuem of Art's recently redone Chinese galleries, full of newly restored art, textiles and photographs.
Rediscover four thousand years of the art of China in our newly reimagined and reinstalled Chinese galleries. Go deeper into the stories behind the objects, grouped thematically in four eye-opening sections: Belief in the Afterlife, Nature and Self-Cultivation, Exchanges with the West, and Order in the Imperial Court.
The new installation features recently conserved works, improved lighting, and a wide variety of objects, including a stunning collection of costumes and textiles, photographs, and contemporary art on view together for the first time.
