A special exhibition marking the opening of the new treasure repository at
National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts is set to kick off Dec. 15 in Taichung City.
Featuring around 120 Eastern gouache, installation, ink, oil and watercolors, as well as photographic and print pieces, “An Exhibition of Collection Conservation—Decoding the Treasure Trove” offers visitors a unique opportunity to peruse some of NTMFA’s rarer items. It also sheds light on the demanding process of artwork repair via a maintenance display and interactive painting exhibit.
Museum Director Hsiao Tsung-huang said Dec.13 at a promotional event that the exhibition introduces the latest technology employed in preserving the facility’s valuable pieces. “By opening part of the largest and most advanced storage room in Taiwan to the public, we hope to foster a greater appreciation for our facility’s extensive collection of artworks.” [FULL STORY]
