First Central China International Ceramics Biennal - Henan Museum

Dec 9, 2016 – Mar 12, 2017

The First Central China International Ceramics Biennale is a new cultural undertaking developed by Henan Museum as a groundbreaking event after three years of intensive research and all-out preparations.

The main exhibition “Cont{r}act Earth” invites 42 outstanding ceramic artists (or artist groups) from nearly 20 countries and regions to participate, with Ms. Wendy GERS, a French art historian, as the curator after winning the international bid.

In preparation for this Biennale, Jólan van der Wiel was in Henan province for residency in November and December 2016. The new series of ‘Dragonstone’ was the result of this collaboration and is now open for public viewing.
