The Refined Beauty Of Porcelain, Bringing Cultures Together

“White Gold﹒East and West Porcelain Capital: From Jingdezhen to Meisson Porcelain Exhibition” and the “Ming and Qing Dehua Porcelain Exhibition” opened at Shanghai History Museum. More than 100 pieces of refined porcelain products stood as witnesses of the cultural and economic exchanges between East and West.

 

Daniela Antonin, director of the German Ceramics Museum, brought 54 exquisite porcelain exhibits, not only of Meisson ‘s porcelain but also Chinese porcelain. She hopes that through the porcelain exhibition, both Jingdezhen and Meisson, the two capitals of porcelain, will have a dialogue across time and space to deepen the Eastern and Western cultures.
