The Hong Kong Palace Museum, at the West Kowloon Cultural District (WKCD), is pleased to present the online “Palace Museum Culture Lecture Series” from April 2021 to May 2022, featuring leading experts from the Palace Museums in Beijing, Taipei, and Hong Kong. Highlighting exchanges, dialogues, and the academic prowess from the three museums, the lecture series introduces the distinctive expertise of Palace Museum scholars to the public, bringing Palace Museum culture to life. Reaching out to local and non-local audiences including Mainland China, Taiwan, and overseas, the lecture series also demonstrates the Hong Kong Palace Museum’s vision to foster understanding and appreciation of Chinese art and culture globally.
The lecture series will be presented in three instalments. The first instalment will be held online on 10 April, 8 May, and 12 June 2021. The second and third instalments of the series will be held in late 2021 and early 2022 respectively.
In the inaugural online public lectures, the current and former deputy directors of the three Palace Museums will also be invited to discuss the variety, essence, and importance of Chinese art and culture, with topics ranging from the architecture of the Forbidden City to the art collections and culture of the imperial court.
