20 July 2011

Explore more of the bold and colourful imagery and slogans featured on posters, papercuts and even matchboxes during the Cultural Revolution in China.

The online version of the Cultural Revolution: State Graphics in China in the 1960s and 1970s (II) exhibition is now live.

Eastern Art Online presents the next instalment of an extended version of the Cultural Revolution exhibition, providing additional information about the works currently on display in the Ashmolean's Eastern Art Paintings Gallery, including zoom-able high-resolution images, as well as a considerable amount of further contextual material. This is the second of a two-part exhibition on the Cultural Revolution (the first part is still available online), also complemented by a concurrent exhibition of art from the same period, Cultural Revolution: Art in China in the 1960s and 1970s, in the Chinese Paintings Gallery.

After the physical display of all these exhibitions ends, the web-based versions of the exhibitions will remain online indefinitely, as archived resources that can continue to be explored.
