Terracotta Warriors: Guardians of Immortality & Cai Guo-Qiang: The Transient Landscape

In a dual presentation of Chinese art and culture past and present, the NGV will present China’s ancient Terracotta Warriors alongside a display of new works by one of the world’s most exciting contemporary artists, Cai Guo-Qiang.

 

Terracotta Warriors: Guardians of Immortality is a large-scale presentation of eight warriors and two horses of the Qin Emperor’s Terracotta Army accompanied by more than 150 exquisite treasures of Chinese historic art and design lent by leading museums and archaeological sites from across Shaanxi province. Presented in parallel, Cai Guo-Qiang: The Transient Landscape will see contemporary artist Cai Guo-Qiang create all new art works inspired by his home country’s culture and its enduring philosophical traditions.

 

Highlights include a monumental installation of 10,000 suspended porcelain birds that create a three-dimensional impression of the sacred Mount Li, the site of the ancient tomb of China’s first emperor, Qin Shihuang, and his warriors.
