本月的上海美国中心“与艺术家对话系列”讲座中,艺术史学者Julie Chun将会带领大家从艺术史的角度解读华盛顿特区的标志性建筑和纪念碑。尽管华盛顿的林肯纪念堂、杰斐逊纪念堂、华盛顿纪念碑等景点对大多数游客来说并不陌生,却很少有人真正懂得这些建筑诞生的历史背景以及其在建筑风格上的重要性。这场讲座是上海美国中心“与艺术家对话系列”活动的一部分,这个月度讲座是由美国驻上海总领事馆和旅居上海的美国艺术史学者Julie Chun共同策划的。 


For this month’s Artist Talk series, arthistorian Julie Chun will present a historical survey of the iconicarchitecture and monuments of Washington DC. While many visitors and residentsmay easily recognize the world famous landmarks of the Lincoln Memorial, theJefferson Memorial, the Washington Monument and the war memorials, few peoplehave a true understanding of their significance. Through this lecture, we willexamine the historical precedents and the stylistic importance as well as thecontext in which these monumental constructs emerged.
