The Blue Road: Mastercrafts From Persia That Celebrate A Timeless Colour

Why We Recommend it

The Blue Road is a comprehensive exhibit surveying different uses of blue in Persian art and history, a colour that has had widespread appeal and significance through centuries and across Asia.


With materials and categories ranging from glass, ceramic, textile, painting and manuscript, this showcase of 94 carefully selected artefacts illuminates the significant role of blue in the visual and material culture of Iran.

Collaborating with eleven major institutions worldwide including the Victoria & Albert Museum in the United Kingdom; the David Collection in Denmark; the Asian Civilisations Museum in Singapore; and the Freer and Sackler Gallery Archives in the United States of America, the exhibition draws from an unparalleled scale of collaboration between a Hong Kong private museum and public international institutions.
