Lu has served in the Palace Museum, the museum of Forbidden City, since 1984, working on the authentication, display and conservation of ancient ceramics. In the lecture, he explained in detail – with his rich knowledge and humor-filled delivery– the development history, appreciation and collection of ancient Chinese ceramics. The three-hour lecture attracted over 200 participants.

As previously reported by Hengqin Record, the Forbidden City Gallery has been designated a contemporary cultural and art space by the Palace Museum in Beijing and its Hengqin branch is expected to spread traditional Chinese culture to the Greater Bay Area.

The Zhuhai branch of Forbidden City Gallery will carry out a series of cultural activities including art exhibitions and highly interactive lectures as well as displaying publications of the Palace Museum along with cultural and creative products.
