The Impact of Chinese Art: and Archaeological Exhibitions in the West


After President Nixon visited China in 1972, "art and archaeological exhibition diplomacy" became a very effectivemeans to improve Westem understanding of Chinese culture, promote friendship between China and foreign nations, encourage the study of Chinese culture in Westem academia, and generally increase the interest in Chinese culture throughout the world. The contributions ofthese overseas exhibitions are not only as significant as the famous "ping pong diplomacy," but in fact have had a much more long-lasting impact. This paper will discuss some paradigms of the overseas exhibitions, illustrate their development and contents, and reveal some examples of their organizational complexities. This paper will also demonstrate that these overseas exhibitions have successfully realized dialogues between Chinese and Westem cultures, crossing the boundaries of different polities, beliefs, and regions, and, thus, truly acting as a bridge between China and the rest of the world.

《中國文物和藝術展在西方的影響》

 

自1972年尼克松總統訪華后,“文物外交”成為促進西方國家對中華文化的正面了解、增進中外人民之間的友誼、引導西方漢學界學術潮流、弘揚中華文化的行之有效的方式。其貢獻不僅可與聞名中外的“乒乓外交”媲美,而且比之更有持續的生命力。本論文以一些重大的中國文物藝術展覽為例,圖示文化交流的歷史和內容,講述組織過程中的復雜情況和內幕, 呈現文物藝術展覽引發和實現的中西文明的對話。這種文化交流跨越了不同文明、不同政體、不同信仰和地域文化的差異,對西方民眾和學術界產生了深遠的積極影響,是名副其實的推動中華文化走向世界的橋梁。
