The earliest schools of fine art in China appeared in the beginning of the 20th century. As one of the earliest art institutions in China, the Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA) has experienced many transformations along with the educational systems in its hundred years’ history. The modern CAFA is a comprehensive and complex institution of fine arts guided by advanced educational doctrines and covering multiple disciplines. It is the locomotive of China’s fine art education.
“Resonance” – the 3rd Exhibition of the Postgraduates of CAFA at Today Art Museum is a fine selection of works by 35 representative artists. The works cover a variety of subjects and forms. They comprehensively demonstrate the working state and artistic thinking of the postgraduate students at CAFA nowadays. These works cover a broad range of forms such as oil painting, printmaking, ink and wash, sculpture, photography and multi-media. The cultivation and depiction of the reality, the construction of an abstract language in imagination, as well as the contemplation and expression of the world around them all reflect the sharp sensitivity and rich emotions of these young artists and their exploration of the artistic language. The audience will not only be able to enjoy a series of classic realistic oil paintings, but also experience the formal beauty carefully conveyed in abstract works. The audience can also linger among the landscape works of ink and wash, which brings such tranquility to the mind that you may call it a “mind’s journey” in nature.
This exhibition serves as a small window through which we may have a glimpse of the postgraduate students at CAFA, seeing how they are experimenting and activating artistic vocabularies and forms in seek of higher art achievements, and how they are continuously making retrospective contemplation and cultivation of the inner self. These pieces of works are embodiments of the subtle perceptions and deep love to living and life from these young artists.
