History scholar serves as guest curator of bronze mirrors exhibition
25 Aug 2017
Dr Sammy Li, Assistant Professor of the Department of History, was invited to serve as the guest curator of the exhibition “Universe within Inches: Bronze Mirrors Donated by Professor Mark Kai-keung” organised by the Art Museum of the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
Dr Li not only advised the museum on how to access the donated mirrors, he also designed the exhibition theme and authored Universe within Inches: Bronze Mirrors Donated by Professor MARK Kai-Keung, the volume produced to commemorate the exhibition.
Dr Li is an emerging authority on Chinese bronze mirrors. He focuses on investigations into the technology of manufacturing the bronze mirrors, which has rarely been addressed before.
The exhibition features 35 Chinese and Japanese bronze mirrors, with the earliest dating back to the Warring States and Western Han periods, and with the majority from the Song-to-Qing period. Audiences at the exhibition will be able to learn about the development of the mirrors by exploring their history.
The collection was donated by HKBU’s distinguished alumnus Professor Mark Kai-keung.
