Chinese calligraphy, long considered the most sublime art form in China, is like a carefully choreographed dance—precision, balance, poetry, rhythm... it's all there in perfect harmony. Calligraphers express their character through their characters. Our new exhibition features 40 artworks, including 15 noted masterworks (many on public view for the first time). It also includes a few major modern paintings and an animation by world-renowned artist Xu Bing. Unlock the complexities of calligraphy with this bold and unprecedented presentation.
