Summary

Since the early 20th century, plenty of archaeological discoveries, represented by Tibetan Buddhist statues of Longxing Temple in Qingzhou, have provided new materials for China’s historical study and new perspectives to re-interpret China’s art traditions for us. As early as the 9th century, the first general art history book in the world was written in China, which is Famous Paintings of the Past Dynastiesauthored by Zhang Yanyuan. However, a large number of ancient artworks have been unearthed in the latest century, which are unimaginable and incomprehensible even for Zhang Yanyuan. It is these new materials that allow us to trace the art history of China to ancient times and to reflect on some basic concepts, terms, classification standards and research methods of art history. As a special project of the 34th World Congress of Art History, the exhibition “Smashed and Reassembled” demonstrates refreshing images of Chinese medieval art. These important art pieces have been put on display at home and abroad many times over the last two decades and documented in various textbooks of Chinese and global fine arts history. Enlightening and inspiring, this exhibition offers us a new perspective by stressing on the original intention of Buddhist sculptures and the way they were buried. I hope these new opinions and thoughts about traditional Chinese art can contribute to the research in art history. It is also my wish that the discipline of art history can make more progress among the diversified culture and bring new vigor to contemporary art practice. (Fan Di’an)

冷风起,冬意浓! 这个冬日的北京刻意显得不那么的温暖,不禁想逃离这荒凉几日,寻一处刺眼的阳光,重新洗礼那或许已经麻木的感官。 选择去吴哥,因为太想亲自去感受一下这世界上最重要的文明古迹,它将中国长城的雄伟、泰姬陵的细致繁复和金字塔的对称之美全部完美的融为一体。唯有置身于吴哥王城,在“高棉微笑”的注视下,去凝望这曾经充满战乱、杀戮,到现今的和平和安详。仿佛瞬间被抽离出这世间之外,画面被定格静止了一般,转过身即是微笑。 版权归作者所有,任何形式转载请联系作者。 关于吴哥,我想大约是我不必多费口舌去解释每一处寺院的由来和历史,每一个来到这里的人,多数都会花上个三五日去感受吴哥雄伟壮观的寺院建筑群。 这里捡几个重要而美的分享。 冷风起,冬意浓! 这个冬日的北京刻意显得不那么的温暖,不禁想逃离这荒凉几日,寻一处刺眼的阳光,重新洗礼那或许已经麻木的感官。 选择去吴哥,因为太想亲自去感受一下这世界上最重要的文明古迹,它将中国长城的雄伟、泰姬陵的细致繁复和金字塔的对称之美全部完美的融为一体。唯有置身于吴哥王城,在“高棉微笑”的注视下,去凝望这曾经充满战乱、杀戮,到现今的和平和安详。仿佛瞬间被抽离出这世间之外,画面被定格静止了一般,转过身即是微笑。 版权归作者所有,任何形式转载请联系作者。 关于吴哥,我想大约是我不必多费口舌去解释每一处寺院的由来和历史,每一个来到这里的人,多数都会花上个三五日去感受吴哥雄伟壮观的寺院建筑群。 这里捡几个重要而美的分享。 冷风起,冬意浓! 这个冬日的北京刻意显得不那么的温暖,不禁想逃离这荒凉几日,寻一处刺眼的阳光,重新洗礼那或许已经麻木的感官。 选择去吴哥,因为太想亲自去感受一下这世界上最重要的文明古迹,它将中国长城的雄伟、泰姬陵的细致繁复和金字塔的对称之美全部完美的融为一体。唯有置身于吴哥王城,在“高棉微笑”的注视下,去凝望这曾经充满战乱、杀戮,到现今的和平和安详。仿佛瞬间被抽离出这世间之外,画面被定格静止了一般,转过身即是微笑。 版权归作者所有,任何形式转载请联系作者。 关于吴哥,我想大约是我不必多费口舌去解释每一处寺院的由来和历史,每一个来到这里的人,多数都会花上个三五日去感受吴哥雄伟壮观的寺院建筑群。 这里捡几个重要而美的分享。 冷风起,冬意浓! 这个冬日的北京刻意显得不那么的温暖,不禁想逃离这荒凉几日,寻一处刺眼的阳光,重新洗礼那或许已经麻木的感官。 选择去吴哥,因为太想亲自去感受一下这世界上最重要的文明古迹,它将中国长城的雄伟、泰姬陵的细致繁复和金字塔的对称之美全部完美的融为一体。唯有置身于吴哥王城,在“高棉微笑”的注视下,去凝望这曾经充满战乱、杀戮,到现今的和平和安详。仿佛瞬间被抽离出这世间之外,画面被定格静止了一般,转过身即是微笑。 版权归作者所有,任何形式转载请联系作者。 关于吴哥,我想大约是我不必多费口舌去解释每一处寺院的由来和历史,每一个来到这里的人,多数都会花上个三五日去感受吴哥雄伟壮观的寺院建筑群。 这里捡几个重要而美的分享。
