Time:  August 16-18, 2013

 

The conference was held on August 16th-18th 2013, at the University of Chicago’s Center in Beijing, the third in a sequence of conferences held biennially on the art of tombs, the longest and most deeply rooted ritual art tradition in pre-modern China. This is a vital and growing field of study both in the sense of the increasing materials available from archeological activity and in the multi-disciplinary scholarship that it has inspired.

Chinese tomb art possesses the richest archaeological information, extending over the longest temporal duration and geographical span of any of the world’s art traditions. As a synthetic visual system, its components include architecture, objects, painting, sculpture, decoration, burial equipment, calligraphy, clothing and the treatment of the body. Supported by major archeological discoveries in recent decades, the study of ancient Chinese tomb art has expanded into an international arena. Because of this the Peking University, the Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing, and the Center for the Art of East Asia at the University of Chicago have organized an initiative to address these cultural materials in a series of international conferences to be held in China. Subjects of research include both general historical trends and specific cases; at the same time, there is strong interest growing in analytical and interpretative methods. The purpose of this conference is to provide an international and multi-disciplinary platform for increased scholarly communication and understanding based on evidential research, as well as serious reflection and discussion of analytical methodologies. It is hoped that the combination of these two directions will further develop this field.

The project for collaborative scholarly research and sharing of information was introduced in 2009. The two chief organizers of the first International Conference on Ancient Tomb Art were Wu Hung, representing the Center for the Art of East Asia at the University of Chicago, and Zheng Yan, representing the School of Humanities at the Central Academy of Fine Arts. After the first conference a meeting of the participants decided to develop a biannual series of conferences to provide a regular channel for scholarly exchanges in this emerging field of interdisciplinary study and for publication of the resulting papers. The first volume of papers resulting from the 2009 conference was released by Wenwu (Cultural Relics) Press just in time for the conference of 2011.

The organizers of the 2011 conference represent three major academic institutions: University of Chicago, Peking University and the Central Academy of Arts. In addition to Wu Hung and Zheng Yan, the chief organizers also include Professor Zhu Qingsheng, Director of the Center of Visual Studies at Peking University.

The conference held in 2013 focused on five general topics: (1) funerary art in its ritual context; (2) evidence of Buddhist and Taoist in funerary art; (3) cultural interactions in funerary art; (4) new archaeological excavations and case studies; and (5) comparative studies on funerary art. The conference took 3 days and included five panels and a round-table discussion.

时间:2013年8月16 -18日

古代墓葬美术研究国际学术会议于2013年8月16日至18日在芝加哥大学北京中心举办。该会议每两年举办一次,今年是第三届。墓葬美术是传统中国历时最久、植根最深的一个礼仪美术传统。随着考古材料不断涌现以及综合学科成果的启迪,墓葬美术已经成为一个非常重要并且不断发展壮大的研究领域。

中国的墓葬艺术有着最为丰富的考古材料,无论是时间的持续还是地域的伸延都在世界美术史上无出其右。它也是考古信息最为丰富的一个综合性艺术系统,其内涵包括了建筑、器物、绘画、雕塑、装饰、葬具、铭刻书法以及对身体的处理。在大量考古材料的支持下,对中国古代墓葬美术的研究近年内在国际上蓬勃展开。正因如此,北京大学、中央美术学院以及芝加哥大学东亚艺术中心联合在中国发起这一系列国际学术会议,讨论墓葬美术的问题。会议研究的主题包括宏观的历史趋势以及重要的个案,与此同时也非常注重分析和解释的方法。本次会议的目的同之前两次一样,为中外学者提供一个国际化、多学科的平台,既鼓励对重要历史性问题的切实的研究和考证,也提倡对于多种研究方法的思考和讨论,以促进这个学术领域的进一步发展。

古代墓葬美术研究国际学术会议这一学术项目始于2009年,两位主要的发起人为美国芝加哥大学东亚艺术中心的巫鸿教授和中央美术学院人文学院的郑岩教授。2009年第一次会议之后,与会者决定将这个项目发展为每两年一次的系列会议,为这一新兴领域的跨学科研究和论文出版提供一个常设的交流渠道。第一部会议文集已由文物出版社出版,并在2011年第二次会议期间发布。第二部会议文集也已由湖南美术出版社出版,并在今年的会议期间发布。

从2011年开始,主办墓葬美术会议的学术机构扩展为三家:芝加哥大学、北京大学和中央美术学院。除了原来的两位发起人巫鸿教授和郑岩教授,北京大学视觉与图像研究中心主任朱青生教授也加入到组织者的团队中。今年的年第二届古代墓葬美术研究国际学术会议继续在芝加哥大学北京中心举办,吸引了大批学者和学生前来听会。

2013年第三届古代墓葬美术研究国际学术会议围绕五个主要的论题展开:

1)墓葬美术与礼仪

2)墓葬美术中与佛道教思想

3)墓葬美术中的文化交流

4)新的考古发现和个案研究

5)墓葬美术比较研究

会期为三天,主要议程包括20-22位学者(中外各半)五场专题发言和一场圆桌讨论。

合作举办方:芝加哥大学东亚艺术中心主任、斯德本特殊贡献讲座教授巫鸿;芝加哥大学东亚艺术中心副主任蒋人和;北京大学视觉与图像研究中心教授朱青生;中央美术学院人文学院教授郑岩及湖南美术出版社。
