A New Gallery for China and South Asia at The British Museum
THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
The British Museum is embarking on a masterplan and new display strategy to tell the stories of the world in a more coherent, relevant, and accessible way to its nearly seven million annual visitors. The first gallery to be renovated was the Sir Joseph Hotung Gallery of China and South Asia, which re-opened in 2017. That was followed by the Mitsubishi Corporation Japanese Gallery and the Albukhary Foundation Gallery of the Islamic World, both opening in 2018. Jane Portal, Keeper of the Department of Asia, talks about these projects, with particular focus on the Hotung Gallery.
This program is free with Museum Admission and will take place in the Stiller Auditorium.
