China's Terracotta Warriors: The First Emperor's Legacy

At talk by Michael Knight, Ph.D.,
Senior Curator of Chinese Art, Asian Art Museum of San Francisco

The Center is pleased to host Michael Knight, Senior Curator of Chinese Art at the Asian Art Museum, for an illustrated talk on the museum's current exhibit, "China's Terracotta Warriors: The First Emperor's Legacy (Feb. 22 - May 27, 2013). Along with more than 100 rare artifacts unearthed from the tomb of China's First Emperor, the Asian Art Museum presents some of the finest generals, archers, and infantrymen from the life-sized terracotta army. The exhibition paints the backdrop for the warriors' creation: the First Emperor's rise to power, his quest for immortality, and his complex legacy. Dr. Knight will present us with a survey of the objects in the exhibition and discuss some of the themes that are explored.
