The First Emperor Exhibition

The First Emperor: China’s Entombed Warriors at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, presented over 120 rare objects including ten complete terracotta warrior figures with foot soldiers, generals, kneeling bowmen and horses that have rarely been seen outside China.
Sydney, Australia


“The opening and indeed the whole installation demonstrates the power of good exhibition design to lead the viewer into the experience of works and to shape the order and pace of the encounter, as well as creating an ambience conducive to attention and sympathetic to the quality of the material displayed.”
Christopher Allen, The Australian, in ‘Buried Treasure,’ December 2010
