Celebrating the Year of the Tiger
Exhibition Period: From 21 January 2022 to 18 May 2022
Venue: Gallery II, Art Museum, The Chinese University of Hong Kong

***The Art Museum has resumed normal opening hours since 22 April 2022 (Friday).***

The Art Museum of The Chinese University of Hong Kong celebrates the Year of the Tiger with a selection of tiger-related artefacts from the collection of the museum and Huai Hai Tang. Featuring paintings, calligraphies, seals, and ceramics, the exhibition demonstrates the apotropaic nature of the fierce feline and the worship they enjoyed in traditional Chinese culture. Often depicted alongside deities and Luohan monks, tigers served as witnesses to the magical powers of immortals. Their different artistic representations also reflect cultural exchanges over time.

Celebrating the Year of the Tiger has been launched at our Google Arts and Culture page. During the museum’s closure, join us online to appreciate tiger artefacts of different historical periods when celebrating the new year to come! (Click here to visit the online exhibition)
