Six Dynasties Through the Oriental Metropolitan Museum in Nanjing

February 6 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

| Free

The Six Dynasties takes its name from the six ruling dynasties of the Eastern Wu (222–280), Jin (265–420), Song (420–479), Qi (479–502), Liang (502–557), and Chen (557–589), all with their capitals in Nanjing. It was an important and glorious period in Chinese history, when arts, literature and philosophical ideas flourished. During the Six Dynasties, Nanjing emerged as the first city in the world with a population exceeding one million. With the ancient city of Rome, Nanjing is often referred to as one of the two centers of the classical civilization of the world.

Designed by Mr. Chien Chung Pei, son of the legendary architect I.M. Pei, Co-founder of Pei Architects and Co-Chair of the Board of Trustees of China Institute, The Oriental Metropolitan Museum was completed on the ruins of the former Six Dynasties and opened to the public in 2014 in Nanjing. It is China’s most comprehensive ruins-site museum that displays numerous cultural relics of the Six Dynasties.

To help understand the Six Dynasties period and this unique museum, the Renwen Society presents a lecture on the topic by Prof. Hu Axiang, President of The Oriental Metropolitan Museum on February 6, 2021, 8:00-9:00 pm (EST). Prof. Hu is a renowned historian and also on faculty in the School of History at Nanjing University. He has given numerous lectures on Six Dynasties and related topics both in China and abroad and published many books on Chinese history.

Mr. Chien Chung Pei will also address the lecture, a rare opportunity not to be missed.

Free, but advanced registration is requested.

六朝(孙吴、东晋、宋、齐、梁、陈),中国历史上唯一的贵族时代,华夏文明薪火相传的时代,儒玄佛道文史交融的时代。六朝奠都南京,其时的南京城是世界上第一座人口超过百万的城市,和古罗马城并称为“世界古典文明两大中心”;南京也因此成为中国四大古都之一,中国南方最大的古都。

坐落于南京长江路的六朝博物馆(The Oriental Metropolitan Museum,The 3rd-6th century),由世界著名建筑大师贝聿铭之子、纽约华美协进社董事会会长贝建中先生领衔的贝氏资深设计团队担纲设计,体系化地将贝氏建筑模数、贝式建筑几何、贝氏建筑光影运用于此,于2014年8月11日正式对外开放。作为中国目前展示六朝文物最全面的遗址博物馆、反映六朝文化最系统的专题博物馆,六朝博物馆既在学界深孚众望,也成为今日南京的璀璨地标。
