Terra Cotta Warrriors pulled from Western Canadian tour
I just received notice that the Chinese government has rescinded its promise to allow the current Terra Cotta Warriors exhibition at the ROM to continue its tour into Western Canada. Its concern, the ROM says, is the preservation of the artifacts, meaning it will limit future international exhibitions to one year.
What that means is the Montreal Beaux Arts will get the show next year as planned, but the Glenbow in Calgary and the Royal BC in Victoria lose out. Given how long in advance such things are planned, it could leave them scrambling.
