A Moving Masterpiece: The Song Dynasty as Living Art

with 2 comments

Went to ‘A Moving Masterpiece: The Song Dynasty as Living Art’ exhibition a while back.

There’s a pre-show hall, a main hall and a post-show hall. You can refer to this link for more details.

Below, as seen in the pre-show hall:

The tickets are priced at $21/adult, which I find expensive since the main exhibition is the moving art! The pre-show hall is very meh. Regardless, it seems like many people went for it o.0

I went during a weekday afternoon so it was relatively empty. Here’s a photo of the whole thing (almost anyway!):

β€œQing Ming Shang He Tu” stands out from the many customary Chinese paintings due to its panoramic capture of the richness of society, from the poor to the wealthy. A classic depiction of a Northern Song era painting, it is famous for its aesthetics and accurate geometric depiction of both natural and man-made elements. As they say, a picture paints a thousand words, and this painting is a valuable lesson in history – giving us a glimpse into the economic, cultural, customary and daily life of the Northern Song Dynasty.

I spent quite some time in this main hall because I wanted to observe the day and night changes in each section. And there were over 20 sections! =o Got quite tired at the end but it was pretty interesting to see all the details.

After the show, I headed to Red Dot to chill with Jobi πŸ˜€

I really like the ambience there and think it’s a great chill out place! Not too crowded which is a nice change. Another location that’s more convenient would be KPO but there’s no live band there, boo 😦

Looking for more of such places, if you know of any great hideouts, please give me a shoutout πŸ˜€
