Calligraphers express their character through their characters. Our new exhibition features 40 artworks, including 15 noted masterworks (many on public view for the first time). It also includes a few major modern paintings and an animation by world-renowned artist Xu Bing. Unlock the complexities of calligraphy with this bold and unprecedented presentation.
