Tapestry was introduced to China along the Silk Road, and in China craftspeople turned the material from wool to silk, developing a new craft known as kesi. In the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), kesi techniques, subjects and styles evolved, and great artworks soon started to emerge.

Shanghai Museum is also planning to hold a ceramic-art exhibition by collaborating with some leading museums in the West, such as the Metropolitan Museum in New York, Great Britain Museum and the Louvre Museum. This showcase is scheduled to take place from June 8 to Sept 12.

Other events art buffs can look forward to are an exhibition of Chinese paintings, a special showcase of donated objects, a bronze exhibition featuring the ancient E Kingdom, and an exhibition of lacquer art from Dec 17 to Feb 16, 2022, that presents artworks from the collections of Shanghai Museum and the Tokyo National Museum of Japan.
