Exhibition : the Forbidden City in Monaco

The Forbidden City in Monaco, Imperial Court Life in China 14 July - 10 September 2017

In 2001, Grimaldi Forum Monaco honoured the "China of the First Emperor" with an absolutely unforgettable exhibition. In the summer of 2017 the focus will be on the last imperial Chinese dynasty (1644–1911), with a celebration of its pomp and circumstance, its tastes and its grandeur.

"The Forbidden City in Monaco: Imperial Court Life in China" – jointly curated by Jean-Paul Desroches, honorary general curator, and Wang Yuegong, director of the Imperial Court Life Department at the Forbidden City – will bring together some 200 remarkable exhibits, from the former palace of the emperors and loans from major European and American collections: the Musée Cernuschi and the Musée du Louvre in Paris, the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the Royal Museums of Art and History in Brussels, and the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery in Washington. The exhibition will invite visitors into the very heart of an emblematic setting, rooted in China's collective memory and home to a heritage of inestimable value.
Designed to allow a relaxed stroll through the palace and into the gardens, the itinerary includes such emblematic features of the Forbidden City as the Temple of Heaven, the Throne Room, the Buddhist temple, the Temple of the Ancestors and the tea pavilion, immersing visitors in a trip to the historic heart of a civilisation several thousand years old.
The scenography addresses the heritage question in an instructively modern way, notably through archival audiovisual material made public for the first time, and the immersiveness of its tour of the Forbidden City.
