Curated by Julia B. Curtis, with contributions from Stephen Little and Mary Ann Rogers, and edited by J. May Lee Barrett, this exhibition will focus on a particularly fascinating period in the history of Chinese porcelain when dramatic upheavals in the Chinese political and social landscape forced potters to look towards foreign markets to support their works. Showcasing over 100 blue-and-white porcelain objects, this exhibition sheds light on the process by which Chinese porcelains adapted to the demands of the Japanese market, thus reflecting the greater cultural interaction of the times.

This exhibition will bring together collections from the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco and various private collections to create the first-ever comprehensive gallery exhibition in the West of Chinese export porcelain wares produced between 1620-1645.
