How to Fulfill an Ideal Exhibition Logic using Digital Technology: A Case Study of Northern Wei Murals Exhibition at PKU Sackler Museum
如何應用數字技術實現一個理想展覽的邏輯 ─ 以北大賽克勒博物館大同沙嶺北魏壁畫展為例

1) Brief History of SMPKU SMPKU was opened in 1993 and was the first teaching museum in China. SMPKU has not only showcased the university's accomplishments in archaeological and cultural relics studies, but also has served as an important academic exchange center by working with artists and specialists from various cultural backgrounds in organizing art exhibitions and symposiums.

2) Topics Covered by the Exhibition An Imaginative World of Afterlife: The Northern Wei Murals of Shaling M:7 and Yungang Grotto Art Exhibition -- an exhibition organized by the School of Archaeology and Museology at PKU in collaboration with Yungang Grottoes Research Institute from 12 Jan 2017 to 26 March 2018. This exhibition has focused on the murals found in the tombs (AD435) of Northern Wei Dynasty in Shaling near Datong, Shanxi province. The finding of these murals was among the top 10 Archaeological Discoveries of 2005, in China.

In this exhibition we have displayed several reproduced murals and some original statues from Yungang Grottoes. These mural reproductions have been created by the joint efforts of the archaeologists at Yungang Grottoes Research Institute and muralists from Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. They worked on the project for 2 years. The statues and mural paintings have depicted the affluent life styles enjoyed by Northern Wei's ruling class, and their wishes to continue the prosperity into the world of afterlife.

3) Highlights of the exhibition This exhibition emphasizes on collaboration of professionals across disciplines, including archaeologists, curators, art historians, ancient architectural history experts, artists and computer experts. During the presentation, I will further discuss the latest research results and new approaches in utilizing digital technology, such as 3D printing and VR, to expand audience's participation experiences as well as how to create an exhibition audio video tour with the WeChat app.

1、北京大學賽克勒博物館簡史 北京大學賽克勒藝術與考古博物館於1993年對外開放,是中國第一所教學博物館。賽克勒博物館不僅展示了北京大學在考古和文物研究方面的成就,而且還通過與來自不同文化背景的藝術家和專家合作舉辦藝術展覽和研討會,是一個重要的學術交流中心。

2、展覽所涵蓋的主題 由北京大學考古文博學院與雲岡石窟研究所合作舉辦的《另一個世界的想像──大同沙嶺7號北魏墓葬壁畫與雲岡石窟藝術》展覽於2017年1月12日至2018年3月26日在北京大學賽克勒博物館舉辦。本次展覽基於山西省大同市沙嶺北魏7號壁畫墓葬考古發現。這些壁畫的發現被評為2005年「中國十大考古發現」之一。在這次展覽中,我們展示了幾幅複製的壁畫和一些來自雲岡石窟遺址出土的雕像。這些壁畫複製品是在雲岡石窟研究所的考古學家和內蒙古自治區的壁畫家共同努力下創作的。他們在這個項目上通力合作了2年。雕像和壁畫描繪了北魏統治階級所享有的富裕生活方式,以及他們想像的來世的奢華生活。

3、展覽亮點 本次展覽強調跨學科專業人士的合作,展覽團隊包括考古學家、策展人、藝術史學家、古代建築史專家、藝術家和電腦專家。在以後的演講中,我將進一步討論如何利用最新研究成果以及數位技術(如3D列印和VR)等新方法來擴展觀眾的參與體驗,以及如何使用微信創建展覽語音導覽等問題。
