01/16/2017 - Arts of Iran
The modern-day country of Iran, known in ancient times as Persia, has a history of civilization dating back approximately ten thousand years. The first few millennia of its development witnessed the rise of impressive cities such as Susa, Persepolis, and Ctesiphon, from which ruled such fabled monarchs as Cyrus the Great (559-530 BCE). At this time the population primarily followed the Zoroastrian religion and they spoke an ancient form of the Persian language written in cuneiform, and later in Pahlavi script.

When the religion of Islam gained prominence in the seventh century, more layers of cultural complexity were applied to the region, and new kinds of political ties were fostered with neighboring lands. At times, connections within the Middle East were strong—for instance when Iran was part of the Abbasid Empire (566-653 CE), a vast entity stretching from North Africa to Central Asia with a capital in Baghdad, Iraq. At other times, such as during the Safavid era (1501-1722 CE), Iran had closer diplomatic and economic ties to Afghanistan and India. Artists and works of art traveled between these areas and certain commonalities can be found in the types of art produced, especially in ceramics, paintings, and Persian-language calligraphy, now written using the Arabic alphabet.

Admission/Cost: $8 - $15

Location:

Ongoing through January 31, 2019

01/16/2017 - Art of East Asia
This exhibition vividly animates the philosophical and creative traditions that inspired Asian luminaries and everyday people throughout China, Japan and Korea. This story begins with a section devoted to Chinese tomb art and develops through Buddhist icons; Daoist visions in the setting of a formal Chinese reception hall; the mixture of Buddhist, Daoist and Shinto domestic piety embodied by the objects of a Japanese living space; and a much-anticipated display of arts of Korea. Throughout the galleries, hands-on elements offer visitors chances to interact with East Asian art in an uncommonly tactile way.

Occupying the space once known as the Asian Court these galleries have been extensively renovated, thanks in part to a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. Reclaimed teak floors, atmospheric exhibition design and state-of-the-art lighting all come together to create a unified and powerful environment for these exceptional arts.

Admission/Cost: $8 - $15 (17 and under free)

01/21/2017 - Radical Machines: Chinese in the Information Age Opening Reception
The San Diego Chinese Historical Museum will launch the international debut of Radical Machines: Chinese in the Information Age, which explores the seemingly impossible, yet technologically crucial Chinese typewriter - a machine that inputs a language with no alphabet, yet has more than 70,000 characters. The exhibition, curated by award-winning Stanford historian Dr. Tom Mullaney, will be at the Dr. Sun-Yat Sen Memorial Extension building at SDCHM from January 21 to April 16, 2017.

Join SDCHM as Dr. Mullaney gives a special presentation on Chinese in the Information Age and the significance of the Chinese typewriter. Following the presentation, guests will embark on an in-depth tour of the exhibition with Dr. Mullany in the SDCHM Extension.
