Free lecture on Chinese imperial ceramics

If you are in Malaysia and is a collector of antique ceramics or simply just interested to learn more about imperial porcelain from China, the Bank Negara Museum in Kuala Lumpur is where you would want to head to tonight.

There will be a free public lecture on National Ceramic Treasures of the Beijing Palace Museum organised by the South-East Asian Ceramic Society, peninsular Malaysia Chapter, in collaboration with the Bank Negara Museum & Art Gallery.

The ground-breaking lecture will be given by guest speaker Wang Liying, secretary-general of the Beijing Palace Museum in China, a leading expert and scholar on ancient Chinese ceramics. She is a central figure on policy matters pertaining to Government museums in her country.

Wang's presentation will be based on the most important ceramic artifacts on display at the Beijing Palace Museum, where they are originally found.

Given the nature of the museum’s collection, the ceramics to be highlighted will be extraordinary ceramics of imperial quality.

Explained Wang: “I will explain the course of development of ancient ceramic and pottery production in China. I will also include the appraisal system and appreciation of ancient Chinese ceramics. If time permits, there will be a brief analysis of the ancient Chinese ceramic arts in the auction market today.”

Bank Negara Museum & Art Gallery
is located at 2 Jalan Dato’ Onn, Kuala Lumpur. Tel: 603-91792784 / 91794077. The lecture is from 7.30pm-9.30pm, tonight.
