This engaging encou上海419论坛品茶微信 ound and light sho

ow is the focus上海419论坛品茶微信 for Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience, an ong

oing exhibition at the National Museum of China that runs through Sept 22. Techn

icians have used cutting-edge technology to bring to life the work of the gifted artist through an all-encompassing pr

ojection display of images taken from more than 200 paintings and drawings from the artist’s oeuvre.

The 35-minute show is being staged inside a purpose-built rectangular box occ

upying a section of the spacious third-floor corridor of the National Museum of China.

The viewer first encounters Van Gogh through a space set out like a galler

y, in which the painter’s self-portraits are displayed on wall-mounted screens. Then the gal

lery changes into different scenes inspired by Van Gogh’s iconic works, where viewers “step inside” these fam

iliar landscapes. One moment, viewers are surrounded by blossoming almond trees, while the next, they watch cr

ows flying over expansive wheat fields. Overhead, a dreamy, starlit night sky unfolds.

In recent years, Van Gogh has been the subject of many popular interactive exhibitions at home and abroad, where digital t

echnology rather than the original paintings are used to offer an insight into the painter’s life and art.

The revised law bans civil servants from working as leaders of industry regulators or administrati

ve departments in charge of supervising businesses run by their spouses, children or in-laws.

The civil servant law first took effect in 2006.

“The human connection is always better,” said Goodrich.
