Memory on Fabric – Textiles of Revolutionary China, 25-29 Sept

Following up on our spectacular exhibition “Poster Art of Modern China, 1913-1997” in 2014, we are proud to bring back Yang Peiming, Director of the Shanghai Propaganda Poster Art Centre to present his unique collections of Textiles of Revolutionary China to Edinburgh.

This exhibition presents a unique perspective and an intimate window into everyday Chinese life in the 1950’s and 1960’s, the collection of Chinese Bed Quilts uncovers more than a simple fondness for the auspicious colour red.

Lovingly preserved by the private collector Yang Peiming of the Shanghai Propaganda Poster Art Centre, this rare and unique collection will exhibit in Europe for the first time.

Offering viewers not only an opportunity to come face-to-face with the traditional beauty of an ancient culture, the exhibition also provides an insight to the complex history of a modern-day superpower.

Date and Time: 25 September – 29 September, 1000-1700
Location: Riddle’s Court, 322 Lawnmarket, Edinburgh, EH1 2PG
