Chinese Ritual Bronzes from the Minneapolis Institute of Art
Demonstrating a continuing commitment to the study of Asian Art, the museum presents a new exhibition showcasing nearly 100 Chinese bronze objects from the Minneapolis Institute of Art (Mia). The works on display reveal the evolution of bronzes in Chinese society. The exhibition highlights the many uses of these objects including their role in ancestral rites, as symbols of power, and as luxury items and art objects. ‘Eternal Offerings’ also demonstrates the significant role of inscriptions on bronzes, especially in the later Western Zhou dynasty. Find out more about the ‘Eternal Offerings’ exhibition from the Ringling Museum of Art’s website.
