Bishop White Committee Symposium
Monthly free with admission lecture series featuring ROM experts in the fields of natural history, world cultures, the environment, anthropology and archaeology.
Coinciding with the opening of our newest exhibition The Forbidden City: Inside the Court of China's Emperors the Explore The Forbidden City lecture series will present multiple perspectives and deeper exploration of themes from the exhibition, from China and all around the world, both historical and contemporary.
Imperial regalia were strictly regulated by sumptuary laws in traditional China. These laws reveal much about the culture in China, and specifically in the Forbidden City. Imperial costume expressed the wants and desires of both the individual wearer, and of society as a whole.
Registration is required as space is limited. No waiting lists.
ROM Members only. Free.
