The Crow Collection of Asian Art, one of the few museums dedicated to Asian art in the country, has set its sights south of the border.
This month, in partnership with Puebla’s Museo Internacional del Barroco and the State Council for Culture and the Arts, the Crow debuts an exhibition of more than 100 Talavera ceramic works on loan from Museo Franz Mayer in Mexico City. Juxtaposing Mexican works alongside the Crow’s Chinese ceramics, the exhibition explores 11 centuries of cross-cultural connectedness between Puebla and Chinese design.
The show is part of Connect the World trade mission and will travel to Museo Internacional del Barrocco in early 2017, following its Dallas debut.
