Japanese Archaeology and Special Exhibition (Heiseikan) Special Exhibition Gallery 1 & 2
July 26, 2022 (Tue) - September 19, 2022 (Mon)
Located in central Beijing, the Palace Museum was formerly a palace complex called the Forbidden City, from which the emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties ruled China for approximately five hundred years. Today, the Museum is home to an extensive collection encompassing 1.9 million objects.
Visitors to this exhibition will experience the depth and richness of Chinese art: They will travel to the Forbidden City at the height of the Qing dynasty through virtual reality, witness beautiful decorative arts through high-resolution 3D imagery, and dive into A Panorama of Rivers and Mountains, a masterpiece of “blue-green” painting, via a massive theater screen. The exhibition will also present Chinese emperors and the tangible cultural heritage of the Qing dynasty through select artworks from Tokyo National Museum. These displays will present an immersive picture of the imperial palace during the brilliant Qing dynasty.
