About The Exhibition

An installation by Peng Wei in collaboration with the Cleveland Museum of Art

Surrounded by classical Chinese paintings and instruments from the museum’s collection, the central installation Migrations of Memory—Wild Geese Descend on Level Sands (平沙落雁) by contemporary Chinese artist Peng Wei addresses the vital role of music and the arts during the COVID-19 pandemic. Made of music stands, letters by Western composers, and paintings, Peng Wei’s installation is dedicated to the Cleveland Orchestra and musicians worldwide.

This exhibition celebrates the redisplay of musical instruments from the CMA’s Ralph King collection and the Cleveland Orchestra’s return to its concert hall in the Severance building. Both the installation by Peng Wei and the orchestra’s return to live performances are gifts of and for the Cleveland community aiming to keep us spirited, resilient, and connected.

This exhibition is accompanied by a free, fully illustrated booklet.
