Growing up in Beijing, The Forbidden City was never something remote or mysterious. However, it was a little too familiar for me to feel curious about it. Later studying art history in the US, I learnt a little about how the West looks at this Chinese imperial palace. Now, seeing this exhibit in a much younger Canadian city, I had a closer and fresher look of the life inside this thousands-year-old Forbidden City. #theforbiddencity #vscocam #vancouver (at Vancouver Art Gallery)
