NPM opens exhibition at Chiayi high-speed station
Taipei, April 24 (CNA) The National Palace Museum (NPM) opened an exhibition of some of its collection at the high-speed railway station in Chiayi County, southern Taiwan Monday for a run scheduled to last for over three months, in a move to bring art closer to the everyday lives of the people.
The NPM opened the exhibition, titled "Opening the Door to Asia," under the theme of travelers.
The exhibition is designed to begin with an ancient map of Taiwan and the Penghu Islands, as well as illustrations of royal tribute by Xie Sui, an imperial painter in the Qing Dynasty, to show visitors about the interactions between travelers in Asia in the past, said NPM Deputy Director Lee Ching-hwi.
The visitors will then be given a glimpse of the multiple facets of the beauty of Asian art and culture with a display of historic artworks from Korea, India and the Middle East, Lee said.
At the exhibition site in the Chiayi high-speed rail station, visitors can also listen to a guide to the exhibits on their mobile phones by scanning a QR code available at the exhibition site, according to the NPM.
In a statement, the NPM Southern Branch, which has organized the exhibition along with the Taiwan High-Speed Corp., said it hopes the show will allow NPM collections to be part of people's everyday lives in a way that is multi-dimensional, relaxed and engaging, and not be confined to glass display cases in museums.
The exhibition will run through Aug. 10. (Courtesy of CNA)
