Scroll masterpiece comes of ageLocal | Jane Cheung 12 Jun 2019
An animated scroll of Along the River During the Qingming Festival will return to Hong Kong for the second time in a decade with an immersive feature.
The scroll will be featured at a charitable exhibition between July 26 and August 25 at the AsiaWorld-Expo.
"By integrating art, culture and technology, the exhibition decodes the renowned Chinese painting in an unprecedented way that will promise to enlighten visitors through a fun and immersive experience," said Phoenix Television, a co-organizer of the exhibition.
The theme is "A Day in An Open City," which is manifested through seven aspects: Open City, The Heyday Scroll, The Bian River Harbour, Song Dynasty Park, Open Zone, a reading area and a souvenir shop.
"The whole theme provides a digital translation of the original scroll painting, a visual communication of the historical background, and a three-dimensional presentation of the painting details, which immerses the visitors into the experiential landscape along a spatial narrative as represented in the timeless masterpiece," the broadcaster said.
Tickets are going at HK$10 each at Cityline today. Those under three get free admission.
