THE SILK ROUTE IN CENTRAL ASIA: UZBEKISTAN & TAJIKISTAN

Would you like to join the Oriental Ceramic Society, London,  September 9th- 30th, for  its fall tour to see Tashkent, Dushanbe, Sha’artuz, the Pamirs, Wakhan Valley and Ferghana Valley? I would! Mail to  mail@christineannrichards.co.uk.
THE  PRINCESSEHOF MUSEUM in Leeuwarden, Netherlands, has a special exhibit April 24th-November 27th, 2011,
TEN THOUSAND TIMES HAPPINESS! AUSPICIOUS MOTIFS ON CHINESE CERAMICS.
I remember the Kraak ceramics and the Martaban jars in this museum.


VICTORIA & ALBERT MUSEUM, London will show 
AI WEIWEI: DROPPING THE URN, October 15th-March 18th, 2012, with ceramics, photographs and films. Perhaps the Chinese government will see it fit to release WeiWei so that he can participate in at least one of the exhibits  featuring his works.


Also at the Victoria & Albert,
JAPANESE ENAMELS: THE SEVEN TREASURES, June 14th- August 19th, 2011.
Featuring cloisonne enamels of the “Golden Age”, made between 1880 and 1910, and sophisticated inlaid metalwork of the late 17th century to the 20th century, including such masters and studios as Hayashi Kodenji, Namikawa Yasuyuki of Kyoto,  Namikawa Sosuke of Tokyo, and Ando Cloisonne Company of Nagoya.

    Hi there! Thank you for that post. Brilliant just brilliant.

    I am actually curating a project in London for Ai Weiwei’s capture-awareness and release. It is called The Chinese Art Project, http://wp.me/p1yUbw-15, and I am looking to do an exhibition using art as a symbol of unique interpretation and freedom of expression. Hopefully I’ll have 25 peices of art to exhibit from 5 unique artists. You’d be so welcome to come! I guess it’s about pulling together and standing for our rights. Especially in an age of social media power. I’ve put a project video plan up here http://www.youtube.com/ChineseWhisperProj it would be great if you could find an outlet to let readers know.

    Many thanks! Keep up the good work.
    Mr Taurus.
