Asian Export Art Gallery

Presented by Peabody Essex Museum at Peabody Essex Museum, Salem MA

Ongoing
Asian Export Art Gallery

PEM’s Asian Export Art collection, foremost in the world, explores cross-cultural exchange and celebrates the interplay of commerce and creative expression. The gallery features more than 200 works of art made in China, Japan and South Asia.

Beginning in the 16th century, many luxuries made in Asia such as translucent Chinese porcelain, fine Indian textiles, and glittering Japanese lacquer were superior to anything the rest of the world could produce. Merchants across the globe went to great lengths to acquire these spectacular commodities. Now known as Asian export art, these objects connected societies and created a complex global economy that continues to shape our world to this day.
