On February 6, "Ancient Chinese Culture: Costume and Adornment" was opened to the public at the National Museum of China.The NMC is dedicated to hosting the exhibition “Ancient Chinese Culture: Costume and Adornment” by making full use of its academic advantages, further exploring its collection resources and broadly connecting with fellow museums.
This exhibition is based on decades of research by Mr. Sun Ji and other scholars from the NMC. It is divided into six sections according to historical periods. A total of nearly 130 cultural relics are exhibited across the exhibition, including jades, bones, ceramics, costumes, gold and silver adornments, calligraphy and paintings, supplemented by more than 40 exhibits and close to 170 pictures and multimedia facilities. The content of this exhibition is both systematic, academic and intellectual. It not only vividly depicts the production process, aesthetic orientation and typical scenes of ancient Chinese costume, but also systematically displays the evolution of ancient Chinese costume and explains its deep social and cultural connotations.
In addition to a large number of material objects that directly portray the form of ancient costume, this exhibition also contains numerous charts and 15 lifelike figures of different eras. It strives to present the overall image of ancient Chinese costume and adornment and fully demonstrate the splendid achievements of ancient Chinese material and spiritual civilization. In a sense, it can be said to be an abridged three-dimensional version of the history of ancient costume.
The exhibition also sets up an immersive experience area, combining ancient Chinese traditional culture with modern technology to immerse visitors in "Chinese embroidery".This exhibition aimstoguide audiences to gain a comprehensive understanding of ancient Chinese costume culture, and a deeper understanding of the continuous development of Chinese culture in the process of inheriting traditions and engaging in exchanges and mutual learning through the medium of costume.
The exhibition is located in Gallery N18 of the National Museum of China and is intended to be on display for one year.
