Made in China: Experiences and Exports
16th June - 16th September
This unique exhibition has been designed, researched and curated by local young people at the Oriental Museum to coincide with the opening of the London 2012 Olympics. Young people will be investigating Britain's relationship with China from 1500 to the present day at the Durham Oriental Museum!
This Stories of the World exhibition will explore relations between Britain and China between 1500 and the present day. The exhibition is being designed and curated by local teenagers and will combine the internationally significant Chinese collections of the Oriental Museum with archaeological evidence discovered in Durham city, personal memories from the local community, and archival material from the university archives. It will make use of new and innovative ways of displaying the museum and archival collections and will allow visitors to offer their own interpretations.
From early-European maps of China, to an English bishop's chopstick holder; from porcelain beer mugs, to Olympic mascots, the exhibition explores the diverse ranges of objects and experiences that link Britain and China.
