04/27/2022 EG: Trip to the Ching-Kuo Chi-Hai Cultural Park

Thank you for joining us at the Ching Kuo Chi-Hai Cultural Park on Wednesday, what a coincidence, it happened to be Chiang’s birthday on this special day.

The park received its eponymous name from the late president Chiang and his home, the Chi-Hai Residence, which he and his family resided in for 19 years. The house interior was unpretentious, the park also features the first Presidential Library in Taiwan. This library is a center for both scholarly research as well as a ever lasting tribute to the late President Chiang Ching Kuo. We were so honored to receive hearty welcome by the foundation chairman Dr. Fredrick Chien, to hear his speech at presidential library and have a very productive dialogue with our members.

When we reflect on Chiang Ching-Kuo’s life, we have new respect for every individual who has struggled and still struggles on behalf of Taiwan.

非常感謝大家週三與我們一起參訪經國七海文化園區,當天是經國先生112歲的冥誕,在這特別的日子來到園區向經國先生致敬。

經國七海文化園區以『七海寓所』及『蔣經國總統圖書館』為核心,七海寓所是經國先生夫婦的生活空間,共住了十九年,這是經國先生在台灣唯一保存下來的故居,內部簡樸,沒有豪奢裝潢。園區的總統圖書館是台灣第一座總統圖書館,規劃為學術研究中心,對已故蔣經國總統的永久致敬。

我們很榮幸受到前外交部長及監察院長,現任基金會董事長錢復博士的熱烈歡迎,在總統圖書館聆聽他的演講,並與我們的會員進行討論與對話。
這座台北人文新地標,融合了歷史,學術,教育,景觀與生態的文化園區,非常值得我們仔細地來探索。我們紀錄了當日參訪活動的照片與大家一同分享。

回顧經國先生的一生,我們對每一位曾經為台灣奮鬥過和仍在奮鬥的人,都懷有新的敬意。

親愛的藝文小組姊妹們您好:

近來在台北「花博流行館」展出的全台最大沉浸式光影體驗「會動的文藝復興」,讓大家觀賞到來自36間博物館、美術館與私人收藏的24位文藝復興時期大師所創作的兩百餘幅經典名作。這個最高處有九層樓高的「流行館」是全球第一座PET寶特瓶綠建築,全名是「逺東環生方舟」,乃利用152萬個回收寶特瓶製成的寶特磚蓋成,本身頗有可看性。

這項展覽分為四個部份:1)走過文藝復興的歷史長廊,以1:1原尺吋複製經典名畫;2)以科技演繹傳統的光之藝廊:50公尺的長廊兩側以LED高解析度燈箱展示「肖像」「宗教」「神話」三大主題的近百幅畫;3)約25分鐘的聲光秀提供觀者540°的沉浸式體驗,最好席地而坐慢慢看達文西、拉斐爾、米開朗基羅、波提且利、卡拉瓦喬五位大師的名畫;4)最後壓轴是進入一個充氣球屋,仰觀佛羅倫斯聖母百花大教堂穹頂上瓦薩里的濕壁畫,加上特效音響與影片所呈現地獄到天堂的五層「末日審判」。有關展覽的介紹,請參閱上面的連結。

本次活動感謝本會榮譽會員Anna Lisa Giglio Ghini夫人推薦大家來體驗這場精彩的聲光秀,並親自為十位會員做英文導覽、另安排30具中文語音導覽機,讓大家自由觀賞。這項展覽有些有趣的互動式設計,可以先在手機上下載marq+ App掃描:Raphael’s “the School of Athens”, Botticelli’s “the Birth of Venus”, Caravaggio’s “Medusa”這三幅畫,看看有什麼噱頭;或者跟穿運動衫的Mona Lisa勾肩搭背拍照。在此愛心叮嚀:觀賞沉浸式的展覽,或許會覺得流動的光影讓人眼花撩亂,主辦人員提醒大家不妨坐在地毯上看。本活動名額為40人,敬請大家在331日(週四)前回覆本電郵報名,名額有限、報名請早,謝謝您的參與。

日期與時間: 47日(週四)上午9301200

集合地點:圓山花博流行館「會動的文藝復興」售票口

費用:(門票與10份英文子母機暨AR體驗卡費)每人500元,65歲以上(需出示身份證件)

交通:捷運紅色淡水線「圓山站」1號出口,步行5分鐘可達(「流行館」鄰近中山北路三段)

Dali & Mucha’s Special Exhibitions at the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall

中正紀念堂兩大特展:超現實主義「天才達利」與新藝術運動「永恆慕夏」

Time & Date: 13:30pm 16:00 pm, Tuesday, March 1st, 2022

Venue: Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall (No.21, Zhongshan S Rd., Zhongzheng Dist.)

Fees: NT$ 500 (includes: Tickets & Audio guide devices for two exhibitions)

Meeting Point: 13:30pm at the entrance for Dali Exhibit (Gallery 2-3 on the ground floor)

Dear Members,

While most of us remain grounded yet dream of taking flights to see the great museums abroad in the age of the epidemic, we are truly fortunate to be able to see the most notable Spanish Surrealist Salvador Dali and Czech Art Nouveau master Alphonse Mucha- two iconic artists’ works being shown just across the hallway from each other. Dali’s exhibition includes a short film he created in collaboration with Walt Disney, sculptures, stage designs, and the 100 watercolors he painted inspired by the Divine Comedy. You can also catch Dali’s famous 1979 oil painting: “In Search of the Fourth Dimension”, which features the “melting clock” that Dali is most known for.

(For more info: https://www.salvador-dali.org/en/dali-foundation/)

Alphonse Mucha’s “Timeless Mucha- Mucha to Manga: the Magic of Line” exhibition consists of five sections. There are more than 200 painting, posters, decorative panels, pastels, drawings and illustrations selected by the Mucha Foundation. A distinctive feature of Mucha’s style was his use of long tendrils of hair, flowers, plants and flowing garments to portray women. He produced many paintings, illustrations, advertisements and designs. For more info: https://www.alfonsmucha.org/biography.html

We are very thankful to collaborate with our dear Consulting Advisor Ms. Lisette Lou to combine these two exhibitions in one visit, and there will be English & Chinese guided tours for both exhibitions. Because these are two separated exhibitions, we will need time to arrange the audio devices; we kindly ask you to follow your group closely and not stray too far. As some of the exhibition rooms are not spacious, this visit is limited to 30 persons on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please RSVP to this email no later than February 24th (Thursday). Thank you so much, and Susan and I wish you all a very Happy Lunar New Year holidays.

Kind regards,

Susan Su Wang
