Taipei, June 10 (CNA) An interactive art exhibit created by Taiwan's National Palace Museum (NPM) has won an award from the American Alliance of Museums, the museum said Tuesday. Qianlong C.H.A.O. New Media Art Exhibition, a mix of historic artifacts with contemporary youth culture, received a Silver Muse Award for interpretive interactive installations, the NPM said. The interactive display combines items that belonged to the Qianlong Emperor (r. 1735-1799) with modern-day street culture, cosplay, disc jockeying, anime, electronic music, avant-garde fashion and video games. The Muse Awards, now in its 25th year, recognizes outstanding achievements in museum media. It honors projects in 14 categories, including Audio Tours and Podcasts, Mobile Applications and Video, Film, and Computer Animation. The Qianlong exhibit also won a platinum award in April at the 47th WorldFest-Houston International Film and Video Festival, the third-oldest independent film festival in the United States. The National Palace Museum houses over 680,000 items and has one of the largest collections of ancient Chinese artifacts and artworks in the world. (By Christie Chen)
