In Mu Xin’s Words: Treasures of the British Library

In Mu Xin’s Words: Treasures of the British Library takes place at the Mu Xin Art Museum in Wuzhen, from 15 October 2017 to 14 January 2018. Mu Xin (1927-2011) was an ardent admirer of English poetry, drama and fiction and the exhibition features original manuscripts – loaned by the British Library – of four of his favourite writers: Lord Byron, Charles Lamb, Oscar Wilde and Virginia Woolf. In this collection we explore these four works in greater depth, with insights and commentary from world-experts.
