Organized by the OCT Contemporary Art Terminal, the 2014 Fresh Vision art project has invited artists He Jing and Luan Zhichao to jointly curate the exhibition. Between June and July, they visited the top 10 Chinese art academies in Beijing, Chongqing, Guangzhou, Hangzhou, Tianjin and other cities, attending graduate exhibitions where they selected outstanding artists and artworks to form this exhibition.
Participating academies for the exhibition are China Central Academy of Fine Arts, Tsinghua University Academy of Art and Design, China Academy of Art, Tianjin Academy of Fine Arts, Sichuan Fine Arts Institute, Hubei Institute of Fine Arts and Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts.
This exhibition follows the theme of “Polytyptic Evolution,” observing and presenting graduate thesis artworks from art academies across the country while using exhibitions, publications and a series of lectures to present observations and thoughts on the current state of Chinese art education. An important theme of this exhibition will be the analysis and critical discussion of mechanisms and the historical background of art education.
