The Six Dynasties period, from 3rd to 6th centuries, was one of the most dynamic periods in Chinese art history, akin to the European Renaissance in the impact it had on artistic creativity and the celebration of individual expression. The exhibition will present the archaeological findings in from both the Southern and Northern across Dynasties across four major disciplines: ceramics, sculpture, calligraphy and painting. Each of these disciplines provides different glimpse into daily and ritual life during this time.
