The brick and stone pictorial reliefs from the Han Dynasty (206 BC-AD 220) are known for their highly illustrative style, and provide an encyclopedic overview of history, social etiquette, geography, astronomy and other aspects of life that reveals the extent of the knowledge people at the time had about themselves and the world. The wealth of information the images contain, as well as their vivid presentation, still inspires artists today. Among them is Lu Yifei, a calligrapher who has taken an interest in studying the Han art form. The Han Dynasty, an exhibition in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province, curated by Lu, displays work by artists drawing upon the mystic, vibrant world portrayed in Han brick pictures. The show marks the inauguration of Inxx Gallery, and runs until Sept 26.

10 am-5 pm, daily. Building 27, 266 Tinglan Street, Linping district, Hangzhou, Zhejiang province.
