Subject: 5, 000 Years of Chinese Jade - Oct.1, 2011 - Feb.19, 2012 - San Antonio

Dear CSSA Members and Friends,
The San Antonio Museum of Art (SAMA) has announced the forthcoming exhibition 5,000 Years of Chinese Jade Featuring Selections from the National Museum of History, Taiwan and the Arthur M. Sackler Collection, Smithsonian Institution. This major international exhibition organized by SAMA opens in the Museum’s Cowden Gallery on October 1, 2011. The exhibition is held in conjunction with the City of San Antonio’s yearlong celebration of Taiwan.

With its broad historical approach, the exhibition provides an opportunity to experience the great breadth of Chinese history through outstanding works of art. The exhibition and accompanying catalog for 5,000 Years of Chinese Jade is arranged chronologically. Principal types represented in the jade exhibition include ritual objects, weapons, scholar’s objects, adornments and jewelry, and vessels.  The jades vary greatly in color, size, date, and function. An Education Gallery located in the exhibition allows visitors to further explore the subject through videos, books, and computer resources.

The primary lender to the exhibition is the National Museum of History in Taipei, Taiwan. The National Museum of History has generously contributed forty-five outstanding jade works of art to the exhibition. Of particular interest are five jades from the Spring and Autumn period (770 - 476 BC) classified as Important National Treasures of Taiwan. Most of the jades from Taiwan, including the National Treasures, will be on view in America for the first time. Another prestigious lender to 5,000 Years of Chinese Jade is the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery at the Smithsonian Institution. Twenty-four jades from the celebrated Sackler Collection complement the jade objects from Taiwan.
