This event has ended.

The Daghlian Collection of Chinese Art comprises over 1,600 pieces of art and spans 5,000 years of Chinese history. Donated to Queens College, CUNY, in 2012 by private collector William Daghlian, this comprehensive, didactic collection will be used to illustrate Chinese art and art history, as well as Chinese history, culture, anthropology, religion, philosophy and language.

This exhibition will focus on 60, primarily ceramic, objects from The Daghlian Collection. Also on display will be pieces by Queens College ceramics students, alumni, and faculty who have studied The Daghlian Collection and created their own artwork in response.

According to Distinguished Professor of History Morris Rossabi: “The arts of China yield vivid and appealing insights about its economy, politics, religions, society, history, and culture, and offer a remarkable guide to the development of Chinese civilization. Visitors can scarcely gain a better introduction to Chinese culture than by examining its works of art.”

Images of the 60 exhibition objects as well as essays on The Daghlian Collection of Chinese Art can be seen at daghlian.qc.cuny.edu.
