An Ocean Odyssey, the Adventure of Chinese Ceramics

Baur Foundation - Museum of Far Eastern Art
Geneva, February - August 2010

The exhibition presented a selection of pieces from the collection of Chinese export ceramics of Ambassador and Mrs Charles Müller, displayed in a wider cultural context along with navigational instruments, engravings and old books, sculptures and models of boats lent by various Geneva museums. The tour ended with a reconstitution of the deck of a junk, laden with spices and jars, tin ingots and gongs salvaged from the ocean depths during excavations directed by Franck Goddio in collaboration with the National Museum of the Philippines.
