5月31日 周二 18:30  与艺术家对话系列:漫谈艺术品中的社会意识



有些人认为艺术纯粹是个人意识的表达,主张“为艺术而艺术”(art for art’s sake),另一些人则相信艺术应当和其存在的社会背景具有相关性。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会提出这样一系列问题:艺术是否有能力改变一个群体,甚至改变世界?艺术家是否能通过作品影响人们的思考方式,从而提高人们对某些社会议题的认知程度?讲座将分为两部分,第一部分中,Julie将就这个主题介绍几个艺术史上的相关案例;第二部分中,美国艺术家Maya Kramer会向大家分享她的一些作品和其中包含的她关于社会生态、女权主义、环保等主题的态度。

While some believe art is an expressive gesture of the individual and is entitled to “art for art’s sake,” others believe art should have social relevancy. On May 31, the Shanghai American Center will welcome Art Historian Julie Chun to posit the question, “Can art make a difference in the community or the world? Can artists impact the way people think with their creations to heighten awareness about issues that directly or indirectly affect us all?” The first part of the lecture will be a thoughtful consideration of case studies of art that strives for social relevancy. The second part features American artist Maya Kramer, who will share her work, which highlights her concerns about the ecology, feminism and the sociological assumptions that enable widespread environmental degradation.
