This event has now passed.

Scholars’ rocks have long been a favourite among Chinese collectors and literati for their abstract quality. Literati often keep them in their studios for inspiration and meditation purposes. The scholars’ rocks that Shanghai Museum presents come from the personal donation by Ms Hu Kemin who inherited them from her father and prove an amazing opportunity for anyone who’s interested in abstract art and want to learn more about Chinese literati aesthetics.
