This event has ended.

This exhibition celebrates the musical heritage of China—one of the oldest continuously documented traditions with roots reaching back more than 8,000 years. Featuring some 60 objects and illustrations—drawn largely from the Museum’s collections of Asian art and musical instruments – Silk and Bamboo: Music and Art of China reveals the dynamic interplay of cultures, the continuity of musical practice, and the diversity of China’s musical traditions from the fifth century B.C. to the present.
