Pioneering: Chinese Artists Abroad in France and Chinese Modern Art (1911-1949) Exhibition Opens in Shijiazhuang Art Museum ...

2019-11-04

The exhibition tour of “Pioneering: Chinese Artists Abroad in France and Chinese Modern Art (1911-1949)”, hosted by the Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA), CAFA Art Museum, Long Museum, and Shijiazhuang Art Museum, opened grandly at Shijiazhuang Art Museum at 3pm, October 27, 2019. It features 123 works by more than 40 artists, including paintings, sculptures and research materials, showing that at the historical node of the transformation of Chinese art in the early 20th century, the Chinese artists studying abroad in France chose to develop Chinese art from tradition to modernity. They thus became the forerunners and practitioners of the cultural appeals for modernity of Chinese art of the 20th century and founders and pioneers of the shifting of Chinese art towards modernity. The opening ceremonyAmong the guests who attended the opening ceremony are : Zhang Zikang, Director of the CAFA Art Museum; Wang Chunchen, Deputy Director of the CAFA Art Museum; Du Yicai, Deputy Director of the Treasury Operations Department at CAFA; famous artists Li Mingjiu, Chen Chengqi, Li Weishi; Zhang Guojun, Vice Presidents of the Hebei Artists Association Li Yanpeng, Han Feng, Gao Junfeng and Yan Jinglong; Wang Fuming, Director of the School of Fine Arts and Design at Hebei Normal University; Wang Liming, Deputy Director of Hebei Provincial Painting Academy; Nie Shufa, Deputy Director of the School of Art, Hebei University of Economics and Business; Li Xueshan, Deputy Director of Shijiazhuang Academy of Fine Arts; Wang Wenling, Vice President of Hebei Artists Association and Director of Shijiazhuang Art Museum; Cao Fengxiang, Secretary of Party Committee and Deputy Director of Shijiazhuang Art Museum; Duan Zhaolin, President of the Shijiazhuang Artists Association. Wang Chunchen, Deputy Director of the CAFA Art Museum, hosted the opening ceremony. Some CAFA alumni in Hebei and many artists also attended the ceremony. Zhang Zikang, Director of the CAFA Art Museum, gave a speechZhang Zikang, Director of the CAFA Art Museum, said in his speech that the exhibition was successfully held in the CAFA Art Museum after more than a year of preparation, and was widely recognized by the society. It showed the academic strength of the CAFA. The Shijiazhuang Art Museum and the CAFA Art Museum have maintained a good academic relationship. This 2019 exhibition was another large academic exhibition held at Shijiazhuang Art Museum, after the 2017 “Object/Realization: A Case Study of Ye Qianyu Part II” exhibition and the 2018 “Xu Beihong and His Time” exhibition. The artists who studied abroad in France in the early 20th century who are presented in this exhibition, received Western academic education of classicism, realism,naturalism, and brought back various Western modernist schools, adding new art categories, art concepts and new lifestyles associated with them to the 20th century Chinese fine arts, which were different from the traditional Chinese painting and calligraphy system. At the same time, most of them returned to their motherland after they graduated, and many chose art education as their life-long career. Till now, their techniques, concepts and theories have deeply influenced Chinese modern art education. Today, we appreciate these works not only to pay homage to them, but also to provide a perspective on how the current modernization of Chinese art develops and innovates in a global horizon. Most of the previous exhibitions on this rich history were presented as case studies. It is rare in recent years that the history is presented as such a large-scale and neatly organized exhibition. The richness and versatility of the exhibition have been well displayed by the works presented, and it is very instructive for the cultural identity and artistic integration issues that the contemporary art is facing. Wang Chunchen, Deputy Director of the CAFA Art Museum, gave a speechWang Chunchen, Deputy Director of the CAFA Art Museum, mentioned in his speech that in the history of modern Chinese art,  there were still many important fine art works that have not been visible in public. And the improvement of collection mechanism of Chinese public art institutions has only begun in recent years. With the support of more than 40 public and private art institutions and private collectors in China, this exhibition will enable the public to re-understand and recognize the outstanding contributions of the art pioneers of modern Chinese art by directly seeing their original works. The tour exhibition is successfully held at the Shijiazhuang Fine Art Museum. We believe that we can have more opportunities for academic exchanges and cooperations with Shijiazhuang Fine Art Museum, and enhance the radiation and promotion of the art industry in Hebei Province through the benefits of this convenient location.Curator Hong MeiCurator of the exhibition, Hong Mei, was unable to attend the opening ceremony because of the planning work of Liu Shiming’s sculpture art exhibition in New York. She mentioned in the curator’s message that the “Chinese Artists Abroad in France” exhibition tour, which exhibits across the country as the 2018 annual communication and promotion project of National Art Fund, presents both the pioneers of western academic classism, realism and naturalism, as well as those who explored the different schools of western modernism. Both of these groups promoted the formation and development of art scene in China in 20th century.Artist Li MingjiuFamous artist Li Mingjiu said that by reviewing the experience of the pioneers studied abroad in France and the development of Chinese art, we have the chance to appreciate the significance of the artists studied abroad in France in the development of modern Chinese art. Today, the commemoration of the pioneers is also a hope for making greater contributions to the future of the art cause. He appreciated CAFA for introducing the great academic exhibition to the Shijiazhuang Art Museum. Such academic exchange and cooperation will play an important role in promoting the development of art industry in Shijiazhuang and Hebei Province.Wang Wenling, Vice President of the Hebei Artists Association and Director of Shijiazhuang Art Museum, gave her speechIn the end, Wang Wenling, Vice President of the Hebei Artists Association and Director of Shijiazhuang Art Museum, expressed her gratitude to CAFA for the trust and support to Shijiazhuang Art Museum. Through this cooperation, the public has the opportunity to appreciate the precious artistic fruits of the pioneers who studied abroad in France. It greatly enriched the spiritual and cultural life of residents in Shijiazhuang City. She sincerely wished that the friendship between CAFA and Shijiazhuang Art Museum will last long. *The exhibition will last till December 3rd, 2019.Chinese text edited by He Yifei and Cui RanranTranslated by Liu Yanchao丨Exhibited Work丨Zeng Yilu, Qingjinghuacheng Tower in Xihuang Temple, 54.5x35.5cm Chang Shuhong, Nude Portrait of Seated Woman, oil on canvas, 140x92cm, 1940Huang Xianzhi, Cherries on White Floor, 61X46.5cmHan Leran, Carpet Market, 200X150cmHu Shanyu, Canna, 65x54.3cmLi Chaoshi, Four Friends of New Year, powder on paper, 46x33cm, 1962Liu Haisu, Basilique du Sacré Coeur, oil on canvas, 73x60cm, 1931Lv Sibai, Cape, 82X62cmWu Dayu, Untitled-19, oil on canvas, 54x39cm, 1980sLv Xiaguang, Temple Hall, 38x30.5cmSitu Qiao, Lassoing Horses, oil on canvas, 97.5x222cm, 1955Wu Zuoren, Worshipping the Blue Sea, 61x80cmWu Zuoren, Practice Work on Human Body, 29x49.5cmXu Beihong, Family Portrait of Yang Zhongzi, 59.5x79.5cm, 1928Zhou Bichu, The Small Three Gorges, 60x79cmZhao Wuji, 1.12.64, oil on canvas, 130x89cm, 1964Wang Ziyun, Morning in Town, 59.5x72cm丨About the Exhibition丨 Exhibition Details Time: 2019/10/27 - 2019/12/3Place: Gallery 4 & 5, Shijiazhuang Art MuseumChief Organizer:Central Academy of Fine ArtsOrganizers: CAFA Art Museum, Long Museum, Shijiazhuang Art MuseumChief Planner: Fan Di'anArt Director: Su Xinping, Zhang Zikang, Wang WenlingExhibition Director: Wang Chunchen, Gao Gao, Cao FengxiangCurator: Hong MeiCo-curators: Dong Song, Liu Libin, Jiang Mingyang More

Fan Di’an: Welcome to Explore the Secret Echoes of the Spirit of Anish Kapoor’s Art | Exhibition is Open to the Public on October 26 ...

 Anish Kapoor solo exhibition in China  CAFA Art Museum & Taimiao Art Museum   CAFA Art Museum  2019/10/26 - 2020/1/1 Taimiao Art Museum 2019/11/11 - 12/28Mr. Anish Kapoor is a representative of contemporary Western art and also a renowned artist in the international contemporary art world. His works have been highlighted frequently in international art exhibitions, particularly those large-scale works towering in the urban public spaces, exerting a significant influence as a trans-century wonder of art. In Autumn 2019, his first large-scale retrospective art exhibition in China will be held simultaneously at CAFA Art Museum and the Taimiao Art Museum, which could be regarded as a spectacular journey of Kapoor’s art in China.Anish Kapoor, DestierroEarth, pigment and mechanical diggerDimensions variable©Anish Kapoor, 2019In the changing trend of Western art and culture at the end of 20th century, Kapoor’s art emerged with its ideas and forms showing both individuality and publicity. The interlacing of his rigorous thinking, mysterious fantasy and free imagination render his art beyond previous patterns, bursting out a luster of fresh perceptions, and becoming a cultural representation with multiple implications and abundant energy. Kapoor’s creation is rooted in ancient Indian philosophy. He integrates the spiritual core of Eastern culture with the modern symbolism of Western culture and establishes a unique relationship between material media and cultural metaphor, self-sufficient pattern and ecological environment. He advocates that color is baptism and belief, space is mind and soul, and material is in spiritual possession, which makes his works invite mysterious and powerful resonance force in the binary compound languages such as the material and immaterial, existence and transcendence, essence and extension. In the 1980s, Kapoor had become one of the representative artists of the “New British Sculpture”, and won the “Turner Prize” that manifests the spirit of western innovation and exploration. As his ideas correspond to and reflect the new cultural reality and cultural psychological signs in the global context, his art is widely accepted globally, resulting in a broad influence in cross-cultural communications.Anish Kapoor, Symphony for a Beloved Sun, 2013Stainless steel, wax, conveyer beltsPhoto credit: Dave Morgan ©Anish Kapoor, 2019The capability of the artists lies in the realization of a complex concept into a simple visual form and the application of the pure visual form in prompting the metaphysical implication. Kapoor is a master in grasping the relationship between purity and polysemy. He is good at using the space where the works are placed to create the site of generation of the works, producing illusive impressions and offering viewers with immersive perceptions. Some of the language signs belong to his specialities, such as the applying of red - a symbol of life origin, the powder that embodies the idea of “emptiness” and the “descension” that looks like a whirlpool, a cavern or a blackhole. The material and form he’s best at is his installation work of stainless-steel structure. This kind of works are extremely pure, always featuring a curved surface, thus making the bright and clean surface not only a shiny object itself but also a carrier of the surrounding landscape, while the phenomenon of refraction and reflection leads to a series of conversion from “ordinary” to “extraordinary”, producing a stunning “mirror image”.Anish Kapoor, Cloud Gate, 2001-2004Stainless steel25 x 15 x 12mMillennium Park, Chicago©Anish Kapoor, 2019Anish Kapoor, Non-Object (Spire), 2007Stainless steel302.3 x 300 x 300cmPhoto credit: Tim Mitchell©Anish Kapoor, 2019Anish Kapoor, C-Curve, 2007Stainless steel2.2m x 7.7m x 3mPhoto credit: Dave Morgan©Anish Kapoor, 2019Sky Mirror, 2006Stainless steelDiameter: 10 mPhoto credit: Tim Mitchell©Anish Kapoor, 2019Tsunami, 2018Stainless steelPhoto credit: Dave Morgan©Anish Kapoor, 2019Mr. Kapoor attaches great importance to the journey of his art in China, and planned and prepared for the show together with my colleagues, who are the show’s host. We both hope that the exhibition could academically present Kapoor’s main artistic achievements to date, and also build a site for direct experience of his large-scale works. Contemporary Chinese art, while basing itself on domestic innovation and development, still needs to keep an eye on the world, carry out extensive exchanges and form a profound cultural dialogue. Kapoor’s art is so intelligently responsive to the complexity of today’s world, and so wonderfully makes spectators perceive the metaphysical secret echoes of its spirit. This Autumn, in response to Kapoor’s wish to “invite people to explore”, let’s immerse ourselves in his grand art scene and have a free discussion.Fan Di’anDirector of Central Academy of Fine ArtsPresident of Chinese Artists AssociationOctober 2019Anish Kapoor, Sectional Body preparing for Monadic Singularity, 2015PVC and steel730 x 730 x 730 cmPhoto credit: Tadzio©Anish Kapoor, 2019Anish Kapoor, My Red Homeland, 2003Wax and oil-based paint, steel arm and motorDiameter: 12 m©Anish Kapoor, 2019Anish Kapoor, To Reflect an Intimate Part of the Red, 1981Mixed materials, color powder200 x 800 x 800cmPhoto credit: Andrew Penketh©Anish Kapoor, 2019 About the Exhibition Academic Consultant: Fan Di'an Artistic Director: Su Xinping Curatorial Advisor: Hans Ulrich ObristChief Curator: Zhang Zikang Curators: Wang Chunchen Yue Jieqiong Organizers: Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing Municipal Federation Trade Unions Co-Organizers: CAFA Art Museum, Taimiao Art Museum Chief Supporting Organization: Zhonghong Chuangyi (Beijing) Culture Development Co, Ltd.Supporting Organizations: Lisson Gallery, Galleria Continua and the British Council CAFA Art Museum | Time | 2019/10/25 - 2020/1/1Open to the public on 10/26| Opening Hours |Tuesday to Sunday 9:30-17:30(Last admission 17:00)/ Closed on Monday Taimiao Art Museum | Time | 2019/11/11-12/28| Opening Hours |9:00-17:00 daily(Last ticket purchase 16:30) Ticketing Information *  All kinds of ticket can be used throughout the exhibition starting 10/26.Scan the QR code to purchase ticketEarly-bird Ticket:90 yuan(Available from 2019/10/10-10/25)Adult ticket: 120 yuanDiscount ticket: 60 yuan(Please refer to discount ticket use policy below for eligibility)Family ticket: 260 yuan(2 adults and 1 child above 120 cm)*Group ticket: Groups of 10 or more may enjoy 20% discount off original price.Visitors with union membership card may enjoy 20% discount off original price.(Group ticket only available at the CAFAM front desk)For inquiries please call: 010-64771575 | Notes | * The ticket of Anish Kapoor exhibition at CAFA Art Museum is 120 yuan.

Gu Yuan Art Exhibition Opens on October 16 ...

2019-10-16

Gu Yuan (1919-1996) is a famous artist Chinese artist and art educator. He was the director of the Central Academy of Fine Arts, deputy president of the China Artists Association, and deputy president of the China Printmaking Artists Association. In his art life that lasted for nearly half a century, Mr. Gu’s works clearly reflected his time, and sang praise of the modern Chinese printmaking development and New China’s art blossoming.In 1938, Mr. Gu Yuan left Guangzhou for Yan’an amid the flame of the War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression, with full-hearted enthusiasm for revolution and art. Using paint brush and burin, he rendered the heroic stories of Chinese soldiers and people’s fight against invasion. In 1939, he completed his first wood-engraving work, Marching of the Guerilla Force. He then began his creative practice under the oil lamp in the cave dwelling. He stuck to his position in northern Shaanxi Province, rooting his art creation deeply in the soil of the working people. He lived among and learnt from the working people, absorbing the truest nutrition. During his time at the Luxun Academy of Fine Arts, he created a great number of popular wood-engraving works, including “Chopping Grass”, “Studying in Winter”, “Suing for Divorce” and “Brother’s Vacation”. These works have become classic works of modern Chinese printmaking history today, and opened up a new chapter for Chinese modern printmaking. In 1942, after visiting the National Wood Engraving Exhibition, Xu Beihong wrote passionately: “I discovered a genius in the Chinese art circle, that is the big master Gu Yuan of the Chinese Communist Party.”After New China was founded, Gu Yuan rendered the magnificent natural landscape of China, the spiritual life of the people and the new look of China with broad vision, lyric touch and modest artistic language. He created a new visual form of New China, delivered a new aesthetic value, and became an important icon of the visual language of New China. The combination of reality, nationality and lyricism characteristic of his work has great influence on future generations. He is an outstanding realistic art master of the 20th century.The exhibition is titled after the title of Mr. Gu Yuan’s first exhibition in 1980s, which is handwritten by himself. In the 108 traditional style newspaper billboards, over 300 of Mr. Gu’s works are presented. The gallery’s theme color, Yan’an red, conveys Mr. Gu's modest and easy-going disposition, and brings the audience to his time. The curation tries to present the interactive relationship between the artist’s creation and the society, bringing the audience closer to “Gu Yuan” while inspiring their reflection on today's artistic development. Like Xu Bing wrote in his article Understand Gu Yuan: Do we have the clear concept and goal as what Gu Yuan and his generation did in their time? Do we have their sincerity for art?Mr. Gu Yuan's Former ResidenceMr. Gu Yuan's Former ResidenceSupport: China Federation of Literary and Art CirclesPresenter: Central Academy of Fine Arts|China Artists AssociationCo-presenter: Gu Yuan Museum of Art|Hunan Fine Arts Publishing HouseOrganizer: CAFA Party Committee | CAFA Art Museum | Department of Printmaking, School of Plastic Arts, CAFATime: 2019/10/16-11/26Place: Gallery 2B, CAFA Art Museum More

The 600-year-old Taimiao is composed of buildings and courtyards of large volume. By reflecting and refracting the space using a series of stainless steel and pigment sculptures, Kapoor is having an unprecedented dialogue with the magnificent architecture and the history. His most impactful, interactive pair of works, S-Curve (2006) and C-Curve (2007) will be placed in the mid-court of Taimiao. “S-Curve” is a S-shaped sculpture formed by two seamlessly connected stainless steels. “C-Curve” is one large piece of curved stainless steel. The two art works, respectively in convex and concave shapes, directly reflects and retracts landscape around them.

Kapoor’s use of pigment is the foundation of many of his original works. He quickly rose to fame with the 1000 Names series (1979-1982) due to its innovative use of pigment. Other pigment sculptures that ensued, including the Angel (1990) in blue and the To Reflect an Intimate Part of the Red (1981) in a variety of colors and shapes, will appear in this exhibition. The varied art works will fill the ancient architecture space. All kinds of shapes will put the audience in a daze.Leviathan, 2011PVC33.6 x 99.89 x 72.23 mExhibited at Grand Palais during the Monumenta, 2011Photo credit: Dave Morgan©Anish Kapoor, 2019The exhibition is co-organized by Central Academy of Fine Arts and the Beijing Municipal Federation Trade Unions, and co-hosted by the CAFA Art Museum and the Taimiao Art Museum.

Originally called the Central Academy of Fine Arts Gallery, it was located on Wangfujing, Beijing. Designed by the noted architect Zhang Kaiji, the Gallery was the first professional art museum built after the establishment of the People’s Republic of China. In 1998, the Gallery changed its name to the CAFA Art Museum. In October 2008, the museum moved to the No. 8 Huajiadi South Street in Beijing’s Chaoyang District, with a new building designed by the noted Japanese architect Arata Isozaki. In the end of 2010, the CAFA Art Museum was selected to be one of the firsts to be listed as the Key National Museums. The CAFA Art Museum is a professional and international modern art museum that conducts academic research, presents exhibitions, restores artworks and provides art education. The museum upholds the philosophy of open-mindedness and is rooted in the concept of using knowledge to serve society. It aims to bridge the past and the future through presenting great artistic and cultural accomplishments of our humanity, and share the culture of our times with all quarters of society.╱Taimiao Art MuseumThe Taimiao Art Museum is located in the Forbidden City architecture group, China’s highest-ranking architecture group that has lasted for 600 years.
