Dr Tao Wang has been Senior Vice President and Head of the Chinese Works of Art department at Sotheby’s New York since 2012. He previously taught Chinese archaeology at the School of Oriental and African Studies and UCL . He has extensive knowledge and experience in many branches of Chinese art, in particular bronzes, jades, ancient inscriptions, and scholarly works of art. Dr Wang also writes for The Art Newspaper, Orientations and Arts of Asia, and has acted as consultant for the BBC and Discovery Channel, and as a judge for Asian Art in London. He organised a conference on the Chinese art market and set up the SOAS international Seminar for Chinese Auction Houses. Dr Wang works extensively with museums and universities in China and with institutions across the world which have collections of Chinese art.

How has bronze as an essential invention of the ancient Chinese civilisation become a highly valuable ‘commodity’ that is worth several million dollars today? With his excellent academic background in archaeology and his experience at Sotheby’s, Dr Wang will give us exciting insights into the more and more important role of Chinese bronze on the international art market.
