A Journey Inside Paintings and Calligraphy—VR Art Exhibition

At the end of 2018, the National Palace Museum (NPM) collaborated with HTC’s virtual reality team, HTC VIVE, in organizing “A Journey Inside Paintings and Calligraphy—VR Art Exhibition”, a state-of-the-art VR art exhibition in the museum’s main building. Displayed alongside genuine artifacts, the exhibition presents VR installations inspired by three different works of art from the museum’s collection. It is also the first ever large-scale VR art exhibition featured in a museum with a permanent ancient Chinese art collection. Through virtual reality technology, we can now enter the extraordinary world of ancient Chinese art and calligraphy, and view the artworks in a new light and in ways never before thought possible.
