The Herman Herzog Levy Gallery is the ROM's main venue for special East Asian exhibitions. The continually changing nature of the gallery makes it a dynamic space to showcase the broad scope and diversity of the ROM's collection of Chinese, Japanese and Korean artifacts, while ensuring the preservation of these collections. Many of the temporary exhibitions are drawn from fragile, light-sensitive (thus rarely-seen) artifacts, such as prints and textiles.
The gallery is named after Dr. Herman Herzog Levy (1902 - 1990), collector of East Asian art and long-time friend of the ROM. Thanks to his generous bequest of over $15 million, almost 300 objects of East Asian art were added to the Museum’s collection.
