The Program in Early Cultures Presents: Soundscapes of Early China: A Conversation on Exhibiting Ancient Bells
Keith Wilson, curator of ancient Chinese art at the Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Asian Art, and Jeffrey Moser, assistant professor of East Asian art at Brown University, will discuss cast bronze musical instruments from early China. They will explore some of the challenges that Wilson faced in developing the exhibition Resound: Ancient Bells of China (Oct. 14, 2017–July 5, 2021), and discuss the strategies that he and his team adopted to give life to the fragile sounds and furtive musicality of these instruments. Free and open to the public. Participants are encouraged to visit the online exhibit prior to the conversation:
