Tue - Sun: 10:00 - 18:00

The exhibition In the Dragon’s Claws is being held on the occasion of the Chinese lunar Year of the Dragon in the Special Exhibitions Hall on the second floor of the Kinský Palace in its permanent exhibition space. It presents Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese and central Asian artworks variously elaborating on the theme of the Dragon, a major symbol in many Asian cultures.

It is the first Asian art “chamber” exhibition project in the Kinský Palace, seeking not only to contrast and present Asian art in its entirety, highlighting its distinctive themes, but also to open a dialogue with the works on permanent display.

This show’s theme is linked with part of the permanent exhibition of Asian art on the first floor of the Kinský Palace, where dozens of other artworks with a Dragon motif can be seen in the room dedicated to Tibetan and Islamic art and several rooms presenting Japanese and Chinese art.
