Preface

The Height of Foundation Having just celebrated its first hundred-year anniversary, CAFA is striding into its second century. In 2001, CAFA moved to its new campus in Huajiadi, and established the Foundation Program at the School of Fine Art in the same year. Two decades have passed since then, and the Foundation Program left its firmly grounded trace in the century-old history of CAFA. In 2001, under the guidance of the then director of CAFA Jin Shangyi, out of the School of Fine Art's demand of expanding foundational teaching, with the support of other departments at the School of Fine Art, the Foundation Program was established with the mission of "laying a solid foundation in plastic arts, enhancing comprehensive quality, helping students hone their basic skills and expanding their basic professional knowledge". Generations of teachers at the Foundation Program have been working hard to pass on their experience and foundational knowledge to the students. From the educational achievements spanning the past two decades, we could get a glimpse of the height of CAFA's fine art foundation. Looking back at the deep heritage of fine art education at CAFA, we could clearly see a consistent, academic vein. We may also see the confidence in tradition, academics and culture in artists and art educationists, which reflect the height of fine art foundation of CAFA. Generations of teachers at the Foundation Program has been exploring the idea of "foundation" in their educational practice. Since the beginning of the program, "foundation" has always been a major subject in our teaching and academic practice. Amid preparation work of the 20th anniversary exhibition of the Foundation Program, CAFA director Fan Di'an wrote the inscription "Kung Fu", and summarized the program's foundational teaching into six characters: De (德, virtue), Su (素, sketching), Cai (彩, color), Xing (行, fieldwork), Yan (延, continuity), Pu (谱, writing history), revealing the structure of the Foundation Program under the new age. Generations of artists and teachers at CAFA have been working hard to cultivate China's best art talents, casting their vision from the frontline of art at their time, and leaving precious experience and artworks for later generations. Standing on the shoulders of the giants, we could continue innovating and exploring in our teaching practice from a certain height. The height of foundation generates from the depth of the foundation, while the thickness of the foundation is defined by the breadth of the foundation. We have been striving forward with one heart and mind in the past two decades, and we are still at the height of our youth and vigor. In a time that art forms are changing and proliferating rapidly, the faculty at the Foundation Program will continue carrying forward the tradition of CAFA, and move forward together with the students beginning from the height of our deep legacy. A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Hard work always pays off. We look forward to witnessing our young students live their youth, and develop their art skills from the foundation. Director of the Foundation Program, School of Fine Art Bai Xiaogang

Fan Di'an: Preface of the "Art in Kung Fu" exhibition

2021-04-01

Promotional Video for the "Art in Kung Fu" exhibitionPreface of the "Art in Kung Fu" exhibitionFan Di'anDirector of CAFAPresident of China Artists AssociationAttaching importance to foundational teaching is one of the most established tradition of CAFA. It is partly owing to foundational teaching that CAFA has been standing on the frontline of the national art education since the founding of New China. Generations of artists and art educationists devoted greatly to foundational teaching at CAFA, and have laid the foundation for the cultivation of talents.CAFA established the Foundational Program at the School of Fine Art amid its educational development after the Reform and Opening-up. It is aimed at inheriting the academic traditions of the School of Fine Art, and laying a solid foundation for the all-round development of the students. Two decades since the program was established, generations of teachers have accumulated valuable experience through their teaching practice and academic research. And this experience can be seen from the students' work year after year.Lu Zhengyuan, Plaster Figure of David, 110x70cm, pencil on paper, 2001. Tutor: Yuan YuanZhang Wenfeng, A Seated Man, 107x77cm, pencil on paper, 2002. Tutor: Yang ChengZheng Jiang, Combination of Still Life, 80x120cm, charcoal and pastel on paper, 2004. Tutor: Ye NanThe Foundation Program of the new era forges ahead with innovative spirit, and actively experiements on teaching practice with new educational, cultural and academic ideas. There are three notable developments: First is sticking to the fundamental mission of fostering virtue through education, and implementing what Chinese president Xi Jinping has said that education needs to help young students to "fasten their first button": cultivating students' patriotic spirit and care for the people, and helping them foster ideals to use art to reflect the time, the life, and their own talents. We are glad to see students bring their youthful spirit into full play in the program. Second is improving teaching methods: The program connects the "small class" on campus with the "big class" in society, guiding the students to learn about the rapid change of the society, enhancing their critical thinking skills while honing their artistic skills, and helping them set their artist goals through social practices. Third is expanding the meaning of "foundation": The program configure rich teaching resource, and improves the students' self knowledge and hands-on knowledge through expansive foundational programs, to help them better connect to their future study in their chosen majors at the School of Fine Art. The exhibition showcases the teaching patterns and achievements of the Foundation Program from six perspectives: De (德, virtue), Su (素, sketching), Cai (彩, color), Xing (行, fieldwork), Yan (延, continuity), Pu (谱, writing history), and displays the program's academic spectrum through works of its teachers. Through the exhibition we hope to think about and discuss further new possibilities of foundational teaching.Guo Shuling, Full-length Portrait of Young Woman, 150x130cm, oil on canvas, 2007.

Tutor: Li RonglinIn fact, foundational teaching at all departments of CAFA is going through reformational explorations with focus on inheritance and innovation, and goal of forming talent cultivation patterns of the new era. The foundational teaching of the new era attaches importance to the students' ideological and humanistic qualities, their cultural confidence and prospective vision, as well as their responsibility for the country and the people. The shared goal of foundational teaching programs at CAFA has resulted in many fresh achievements. We hope to promote exchange of ideas on foundational teaching between different departments through the exhibition, to further construct the top-level foundational teaching at CAFA, and to communicate with fellow art educationists around the globe.Huang Lan, Landscape Sketching, 30x40cm, oil on canvas, 2010.

Tutor: Yuan Yuan"Kung Fu" in the title of the exhibition means the "Kung Fu" (effort) we must devote to imparting knowledge and educating people. As President Xi Jinping has said, we need to put effort in strengthening our conviction, in holding the patriotic spirit, in building a virtuous character, in growing knowledge, in carrying forward the hard-working spirit, and in enhancing our overall quality, so that we could lift the foundational teaching at CAFA to a new height of our time.Art in Kung Fu: Honoring the 20th Anniversary of the Foundation Program at the School of Fine ArtTime: 2021/03/20 - 2021/04Location: Gallery 2B, 3A, 3B, CAFA Art Museum

“Art in Kung Fu” exhibition extended to May 1: See how CAFAers paint the Red Army Recipe with 100 oil paintings

2021-04-14

The much welcomed exhibition "Art in Kung Fu: Honoring the 20th Anniversary of the Foundation Program at the School of Fine Art" will be extended to May 1. All visitors (including guests with invitation) are required to make real-name appointment in advance, and enter the museum upon wearing masks and showing green health code. Please scan the QR code at the end of the page to make an appointment. CAFA teachers and students may visit without making appointments.Wild vegetables, grass roots, barks, leather products...how impactful would it be if all these matters, which are the actual food of the Red Army during its Long March, are collected and shown together? The "Art in Kung Fu: Honoring the 20th Anniversary of the Foundation Program at the School of Fine Art" exhibition was opened at CAFA Art Museum on March 25. In it three walls of 100 paintings from the work Red Army Recipe show the food of the Red Army during its Long March, which were researched and painted by a group of CAFA teachers and students in a field trip to Zoige County in Sichuan Province, a stop of the Long March.The year 2016 is the 80th anniversary of the success of the Long March. To celebrate the moment, teachers and students from the Foundation Program at the School of Fine Art organized a "Long March Again" team. Under the guidance of Professor Zhang Lujiang, who was also the director of the Foundation Program and the Deputy Director of the School of Fine Art at the moment, the team went to Zoige County, in Aba Tibetan and Qiang Autonomous Prefecture, Sichuan Province, where the Long March went through, and finished the 100-painting series Red Army Recipe. "The airport is located at 3,500 altitude. Although we have prepared medicine for the altitude sickness, five students still went to the hospital," recalled leading teacher Zhang Han of the first night that the team arrived at the Aba Hongyuan Airport, "It took a few days for us to get used to the climate."In 1934-1935, three main forces of the Red Army (First Front Army, Second Front Army and Fourth Front Army), marched from Sichuan to Gansu through the Zoige County. This is the only county in Sichuan that the three main forces all had left their traces. Tens of thousands of the Red Army soldiers rest in peace in Zoige, and live in the many widely spread heroic epics today. Unlike many of the past theme-based creative works, the team focused on details - food - this time, because the true details dormant deep in the history is much more alive than the stories we pass around.To better carry out the creative work, we divide the team into 12 groups based on the historical archives we found regarding the Long March. Each group has its special task, which are categorized as planning, making fire, leather products, fungi, cooked food, wild vegetables, grass roots, wild fruit, barks, dried meat, cereal, searching. For example, the "making fire" team was responsible of finding the kitchenware Red Army used during the Long March, and used the same type of ware to heat food and restore the scene; the "searching" team went to historical site, former residences of celebrities, and residences of the Tibetan locals, to search for the utensils Red Army has used. In the 15-day field work, the group searched for food in teams, and tried their best to restore the actual scene of the Long March. The paintings are not simply a description of what happend, but also brimmed with strong emotions. We can see on them an experience of numerous hardships that eventually lead to bright glory.According to Zhang Han, every group member has tasted themselves the food that the Red Army ever had. Out of the 100 paintings, one features some carrots. "I saw this carrot at a Tibetan shepherd's home, and said to him that it's afterall not that bad if the Red Army could live by the carrots. Then the shepherd said that it's for pigs - people don't eat that there," Zhang said, "I brought some of the carrots to the painting base camp for people to taste them, and they were really horrible, dry like wood." Teachers and students also tasted cooked grass roots and leather belts. "Through the experience of taste, we know more deeply the difficulties of the Long March.The climate of Zoige is very changeable. Rains and hails were common during the time the group was there. They usually had solid food for lunch in order to have more time for the creative work. "In the beginning, some students painted aesthetically beautiful still life like when they were at class, but after guidance from the teachers, and their true experience at the site, their paintings show difference in brush strokes, texture and spirit," said Zhang Han. Many students cried upon hearing the stories of the Red Army. In the middle of the vast grassland, the creators had a dialogue with the Red Army across time.There are many moving details in the exhibited paintings. Some have pasted cereals like highland barley and wheat into the paintings - people can almost smell the scent of the cereals. There is also a special painting, which draws a neatly folded military uniform. A dying Red Army solder took off his uniform in case his body would get cold and make it difficult for others to take it off, so that the soldiers who pass him by later would use his uniform to get warm or feed their stomach.The exhibition is composed of six sections: De (德, virtue), Su (素, sketching), Cai (彩, color), Xing (行, fieldwork), Yan (延, continuity), Pu (谱, writing history), and displays over a hundred outstanding works by the teachers and students at the Foundation Program. Like CAFA director Fan Di'an said, attaching importance to foundational teaching is one of the most established tradition of CAFA. We hope this exhibition could be an opportunity to comprehensively show the teaching patterns and achievements of the Foundation Program in the last two decades, and discuss the future developments of the foundation teaching.The exhibition will be extended to May 1.Art in Kung FuHonoring the 20th Anniversary of the Foundation Program at the School of Fine ArtTime: 2021/03/20 - 05/01Location: Gallery 2B, 3A, 3B, CAFA Art Museum丨Organizer丨Central Academy of Fine Arts丨Undertaker丨Foundation Program at the School of Fine ArtCAFA Art Museum丨Academic Director丨Fan Di'an丨Curator丨Bai XiaogangScan the QR code to purchase ticketScan the QR code to make an appointment
