Museum Lab of
Lives in Disorder
The exhibition has been in the works since early 2019. Since then, the NPM collaborates with the Easy Clubhouse. The curatorial vision of the exhibition involves the NPM's artworks, people-oriented thinking, the participation of contemporary artists, and boundary-crossing collaboration. The exhibition is inspired by the art and life of the talented Ming dynasty painter Xu Wei (1521-1593). During his lifetime, Xu experienced hallucinations, inflicted self-harm, and was even imprisoned for killing his own wife. The exhibit explores important social issues, from the past to the present, and responds to societal prejudice, discrimination, and stigma by practicing social care and cultural participation.
The NPM uses cultural relics to exemplify the lives of both ancient and modern people, allowing participants to feel more connected to society by interacting and creating. In C-Lab, participants will learn about different perspectives through narrative, interpretation, and exhibition.
You are invited to join us in this experimental platform. Through reflection and dialogue, we can work to remove labels of “disorder” and inequality. Together, we can move away from sorrow and despair and towards a more "spirited" future.
