China News Agency, Lanzhou, November 29th (Reporter Ding Si) Luo Yao, director of the Dunhuang Grottoes Cultural Relics Protection Research and Exhibition Center of the Dunhuang Academy, recently accepted an exclusive interview with a reporter from China News Agency, saying that since the 1940s, Dunhuang art has moved towards the exhibition in the form of exhibitions. At home and abroad, it has continuously evolved from a general exhibition to a special exhibition. It sorts out and compares the "everything in the world" such as clothing, makeup, furniture, architecture, and daily life in Dunhuang murals across time and space, and reproduces the cultural exchanges along the ancient Silk Road. It has gradually become a bridge and link for two-way communication between Eastern and Western cultures.

  Different nationalities and cultures meet, communicate and blend in Dunhuang, forming a colorful, rich and profound Dunhuang culture.

At present, the Dunhuang Academy has held Dunhuang art exhibitions in more than 20 countries and Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan regions, telling Chinese stories and recreating exchanges along the Silk Road.

  "The exhibition will focus more on the human world in the Dunhuang murals, reflecting the diversity of cultural exchanges." Luo Yao said that the exhibition no longer only presents portraits of religious figures such as Bodhisattvas, Joy Letians, and Feitians, but also seeks to explore the various aspects of Dunhuang murals. The pattern is presented from multiple life scenes such as clothing, architecture, transportation, and tools, so that overseas audiences can see, "Although we are in different countries, people's living conditions have many similarities, which brings different cultural backgrounds closer together. The distance between the people of the country."

  In order to better present the forms in the murals, the Dunhuang Art Exhibition uses new technologies to three-dimensionally restore the "fireworks".

  Luo Yao revealed that at present, the hospital has implemented VR virtual tours of four replicated caves; it is exploring naked-eye 3D technology to realize the infinite display of exhibition content in a small space. Visitors do not need to wear glasses, and only need to move their fingers to view Zoom in, zoom out, or cross out with a wave to satisfy the immersive viewing experience.

  The two-way communication of different cultures is a feature of Dunhuang exhibitions, and the exploration of human cultural and artistic exchanges is also the goal that the Dunhuang Academy has been committed to.

In 1955, the Dunhuang Art Exhibition went to India and Myanmar for the first time, and selected a large number of mural reproductions; in 1988, the thematic art exhibition "Chinese Xixia Exhibition" entered Japan for the first time... The Dunhuang Academy continues to explore the integration and mutual learning of Chinese and Western cultures historical facts.

  "The early outreach exhibitions focused more on the significance of cultural exchanges between countries. The exhibits were mostly precious documents, replicas of mural paintings, large sutra paintings, single Buddha statues, reproduced colored sculptures, and cave photos, etc., aiming to make more Many people know the art of Dunhuang Grottoes and the stories of Dunhuang," said Luo Yao.

  Since the 1980s, Dunhuang studies have been vigorously revived, and the number of foreign exchange exhibitions of the Dunhuang Academy has increased day by day. The themes, contents, and methods of the exhibitions have been innovated.
