Unearthed: Recent Archeological Discoveries from Northern China

by The Staff on June 14, 2012

Just because the construction workers are still busy on the campus of the Clark Art Institute doesn’t mean the curators aren’t equally busy readying new exhibits for you to experience. Three China-related exhibits open this weekend.

Unearthed: Recent Archeological Discoveries from Northern China, which opens in the Manton Research Center, features antiquities recently discovered in excavated tombs in Northern China. Clark director Michael Conforti has said that “this exhibition not only celebrates the magnificent objects discovered through archeology, but also examines how recent finds are influencing modern China’s sense of its cultural identity.”

The other two exhibits, Through Shen-Kan: Sterling Clark in China, and Then & Now: Photographs of Northern China, will be on view in the Stone Hill Center.

Unearthed: Recent Archeological Discoveries from Northern China and the accompanying exhibits open Saturday (June 16) at the Clark Art Institute (225 South St., Williamstown, Mass.). Unearthed will be on view through Oct. 21; the two other exhibits will be on view through Sept. 16. For more info, call (413) 458-2303.
