Our curators are continually on the lookout for just the right objects—objects of the highest quality and impact that build on our current collection or take it in a new direction. This exhibition will showcase 26 recent additions to the Cincinnati Art Museum’s permanent collection in the areas of fashion and craft. These works, all created since 1950, will be paired to highlight shared affinities that document the diverse trends, ideas, events and characters of our time.
Realm of the Immortals: Daoist Art in the Cincinnati Art Museum
October 12, 2013 to January 05, 2014
Realm of the Immortals is designed to introduce the important concepts of Chinese Daoism as both a philosophy and as a folk religion. Daoism has a deep and lasting influence on the cultures and arts of China, Japan, and Korea. The art objects selected here, except for a small number of loans, are all from the Cincinnati Art Museum’s collection and most have never been on public display before.
