The "In Touch with Palace Museum" campaign covers an array of activities related to the arts and culture of the Palace Museum being launched from end of 2016 to July 2017. Through a series of exhibitions, talks, workshops, television and radio programmes, events and educational activities, the campaign highlights the essence of traditional Chinese culture and its modern connotations, as well as the role and contribution of Hong Kong and the Palace Museum in the inheritance of Chinese culture. It leads the public to discover that far from being anachronistic or outmoded, traditional culture still holds a wealth of wisdom for their daily lives.
Shiqu Baoji was the name given to the catalogues of the Qing dynasty imperial collection of Chinese painting and calligraphy during the Qianlong period. This exhibition features 13 works selected from the Xubaizhai Collection.
