The Forbidden City

For over 500 years, the gates of the world’s largest imperial palace were closed to all but the emperor, his family and servants. This stunning new exhibition invites you to cross the threshold to see over 200 national treasures from Beijing’s Palace Museum – some travelling outside China for the first time.

Compelling characters, engaging stories, and family adventure frame these extraordinary objects as you journey from the gates of the outer court, through the inner court and into the emperor’s private spaces, revealing the everyday lives of all those who paid a price to live inside.

Fashioning the Intangible: the conceptual clothing of Ying Gao

The expressive garments of Canadian designer Ying Gao appear to be made of air and light. Bridging art, science and technology, Gao’s clothing materializes the immaterial with interplay between matter and imagination, and between the tangible body and the infinite expression of its embellishment. Poetic effects are developed through computational systems, motors, sensors, embedded electronics, pneumatic and interactive technologies – and with a distinctive aesthetic grace. A focus on urban cultures and transformation is central to this exhibition, which presents six installations produced between 2008 and 2013.
