More Info

Empress Dowager Cixi (1835-1908) stands in the center of modern Chinese history. While most commonly understood as a politician, this formidable matriarch was also introduced to Western audience or reader as a connoisseur, patron and even creator of art in the early twentieth century, a phenomenon that interestingly fell unnoticed in modern scholarship.
This exhibition is the first of its kind in the United States to explore the empress dowager’s roles beyond politics. It has been organized through a groundbreaking partnership with the Summer Palace Museum in Beijing.

Empress Dowager Cixi: Selections from the Summer Palace is organized by the Summer Palace Museum, Beijing, China and the Bowers Museum and is guest curated by Ying-chen Peng, Assistant Professor of Art History at American University.
