Research Workshop Introduction
Li Hu was an important Chinese painter, art educator, and teacher of CAFA in Chinese modern art history. He integrated Chinese and Western painting techniques – Chinese brush and ink with Western skills – in the creation of Chinese painting and made unique achievements in landscape and portrait painting. Li Hu created a lot of outstanding works, including “Guangzhou Uprising”, “Indian Woman”, “Portrait of Guan Hanqing”, “Night Navigation on the Three Gorges”, etc.
Li Hu, “Guangzhou Uprising”

In order to commemorate Li Hu and fully present his artistic outlook, CAFA Art Museum has planned a special exhibition “A Poem of Great Ambition – Li Hu’s Artistic Path”, which is to be displayed in the art museum from December 2018 to January 2019. This exhibition will present more than 100 pieces of representative works created by Li Hua in his lifetime. Curator Cao Qinghui has systematically sorted out the creative process and works of Li Hu at different periods, focusing on Li Hu’s contribution to the innovation creation of Chinese figure painting.
Li Hu, “Self-portrait”
The research workshop, held along with the exhibition, takes on the education function of CAFA Art Museum to encourage young students to participate in the scientific and research projects related to the exhibition theme by a new model.

About the Lecture
This lecture will examine recent productions in contemporary art which employ various new media in order to reshape the sense of time and a sedimentation of history which no longer creates material remains but rather unfolds in an extended virtual space. While realizing what was at stake in the development of the internet in his essay from 1995, Archival Fever, Jacques Derrida raised the thoughtful question: “Where does the outside begin? That is the only question of the archive.” From seminal artists of Media Art, such as Chris Marker, to those who address today the interlacing of media and memory, we see experimental gestures go beyond the documentary use of the archive to question the cognitive experience of a multilayered past and the possibility to anticipate the future.

MAB (Media Architecture Biennale) is among the world’s largest and most high-profile academic brand events in the field of media architecture. Since 2008, five biennales have been held in Berlin in Germany (2008), Vienna in Austria (2010), Aarhus in Denmark (2012/2014), and Sydney (2016). This year’s biennale MAB18 is hosted by CAFA, running 17 days from November 13 to 29, including workshop, thematic forum, conference, exhibition and award ceremony.
MAB18 will bring together representatives from Europe, the Americas, Australia, as well as
well-known domestic colleges & universities, art organizations, scientific institutions and innovative enterprises. On the occasion, world’s top scholars, designers, artists, industry experts and urban construction managers of the media architecture and related fields, will lead participants to experience an idea storm of design and innovation, to jointly seek answers to the problems and challenges faced by media architecture in the global and Chinese cities, and to explore the great potential of media architecture in social, cultural and commercial fields in the construction and development of smart cities.
The Theme of MAB18: Media Architecture – Digital Infrastructure at the Scale of the Hybrid City
At present, digital infrastructures, large or small, have already merged into placemaking and smart city initiatives as the familiar “media architecture”. At the micro level, interconnected displays and mobile phones can show useful information to residents, while at the macro level, the huge building facades and screens can represent the image and identity of an entire city. Then, how can the various scales of media architecture connect with the new-type interfaces between physical space and digital world, so as to build and support the structure of society, economy and culture will be an important developing direction in the future. MAB18 is to bring together top researchers, designers, and city builders & managers to discuss the utility and scale of interconnected media architecture in the local and global contexts.

About CAFA Visual Art Innovation Institute
In 2015, the CAFA Visual Art Innovation Institute was among the first batch of institutions selected for the Beijing Advanced Innovation Centre Program. It was also the only art academy amongst 13 colleges and universities. The institute adopts an innovate interdisciplinary, cross-disciplinary mechanism, whereby this platform enables the removal of existing bottlenecks of scientific research and teaching to pursue the interlinking of research, learning, and production that is forward-looking and in line with the developments of times. In this way, it can build a collaborative innovation model that is oriented towards achieving a fourfold synergy between the scientific frontier, cultural heritage innovation, industry, and major regional development needs, thus building two "1+4" models. The first goal is to create a "visual culture system" for Beijing, enhancing Beijing's visual identity, and incorporate the city's cultural development strategy. The second goal is to bring in internationally renowned masters with "Visual Beijing" as a blueprint, driving the research, learning, and production development of Beijing's related professional colleges and universities. In term of content, 'Spatial Beijing', 'Visual Beijing', 'Fashion in Beijing', and 'Life in Beijing' will be the main four components of the institute. In terms of organisation and structure, the Central Academy of Fine Arts will lead and build the platform for teaching, learning , and production, enabling the achievement of resources sharing between four of Beijing's colleges and universities, namely Beijing University of Technology, Beijing University of Civil Engineering and Architecture, Beijing Film Academy, and Beijing Institute of Fashion Technology.
