To all faculty leaders, teachers and students from CAFA:
After several years of development, CAFA ART INFO has become one of the most important national and international art media websites. The visitors to the English version are spread over 100 countries and regions around the world. According to the tips from curator Rachel Marsden wrote for the Art Radar in 2014, CAFA ART INFO ranks No.3 of the top online resources for Chinese contemporary art.
In line with the 2016 Graduation Season activities, to better utilize the academic platform of CAFA ART INFO, to improve promotion and introduce creative works of the graduates of the year to the country and international society, CAFA ART INFO intends to make a large-scale feature film of the graduation works, the feature films will be divided into 8 chapters based on a variety of faculties (Plastic Arts, Design, Chinese Painting, Architecture, Humanities, Arts Administration and Education, Experimental Art, Urban Design), all the materials come from the students, starting from the perspective of students, focusing on the formation process of graduation works and the teachers’ instructions behind the works, vividly presenting the teaching states, teaching achievements and creative states of the academy, offering first-hand research data to the domestic and foreign institutions and scholars who really pay close attention to the art ecology of the new generation of Chinese artists, which also offers the graduates’ creation a memorable summarizing system.
Each short film of the series is about 5 minutes in length, together with the subtitles in Chinese and English and will be published on a variety of platforms including the Chinese and English editions of CAFA ART INFO, WeChat, etc., recommending them to overseas partner institutions and media.
