00 Poster 1 598x593 - The International Art Education Conference—Art Education in the New Era

Today’s world is characterized by pluralism. Mankind is facing unprecedented challenges; will we work together for the common good or will we choose to play a zero-sum game? Will we choose exchange and interaction or antagonism and conflict? Will the world come together or engage in trade protectionism? These are questions we must confront, which concern people’s ideas, perceptions, and personal qualities. Art education makes the world better by shaping the people in it. One hundred years ago, the pioneers of modern Chinese art education wanted to replace religion with art education and founded the first national art academy in modern China, the antecedent to today’s Central Academy of Fine Arts. In founding this kind of art academy, they hoped to change people through art education, and from there, to change the world. This aim has not changed. Today, we hope to join with art educators from round the world. The International Art Education Conference is not just an alliance of art academies; it welcomes all art institutions. Art education is not just a mission to be undertaken by universities and academies; it is the mission of individual artists, communities, museums, and art institutions.

“Challenge” has become the common condition and basic context of contemporary architectural thought, education and practice. The architectural forum will follow the lineage of open framework and fundamental reflection. In the three sessions: Architectural Thinking and Challenge, Architectural Education and Challenge, Architectural Practice and Challenge, we will inquire how we face the crisis situations of challenges, and explore the cultural attitudes, projective projects and critical determination connected with the paradoxical moments under crisis. We will then redefine the origin, clarify the current moment and create the future.

It not only offers artists new media and means for creation but also brings about fresh creation dimension and ways of thinking. At the same time, it creates all kinds of possibilities for collections preservation, exhibition presentation, knowledge dissemination, atmosphere building and audience interaction in art museums. How to seize the opportunities brought by digital technology and deal with its challenges is a pressing issue facing global art museums and galleries today. This forum will explore the topic from art museum’s academic research, public education, construction of substance & concept, and other aspects.
