10.00 – 17.30
Ceramics, Room 146 & China, Room 44
This display showcases historic pieces from the V&A’s Asian and European ceramics collections, as well as a selection of new works by contemporary makers including: Babs Haenen, Lucille Lewin, Liang Wanying, Jeffry Mitchell, Su Xianzhong, and Peter Ting. Retelling the story of porcelain-making in Dehua, this display will build a bridge between the past and the current, tradition and innovation, and breaking the boundary of Chinese and non-Chinese ceramic practices.
Thank you to curator Xiaoxin Li for making this possible, and, of course, Jeffry for his never ending talent.
