Biennale of Student Art Works held by Southwest University
CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- With the title of “Walking and Resonating Together”, Southwest University held the third Biennale of Student Art Works in the school museum on the morning of November 9. 187 pieces of artworks are on display, showcasing the achievements in the ideological, political and aesthetic education for both undergraduates and postgraduates and presenting the dialogues and exchanges in art education in the new era.
The School of Fine Arts of Southwest University launched the “Annual Exhibition of Student Works of School of Fine Arts, Southwest University” in 2005, which was then renamed “Southwest University Biennale of Student Art Works”, extending the exhibited works.
The theme of this year's biennale, “Walking and Resonating Together”, means that the students walk with the nation and they are on the same wavelength with the era. According to Duan Yundong, Dean of the School of Fine Arts of Southwest University, they collected works from all undergraduates and postgraduates at the university, and after a review by a panel of experts, nine first-prize works, 23 second-prize works, 39 third-prize works, and 116 excellent works were selected. The 187 pieces of works on display show the strength of students in artistic creation and academic innovation, demonstrate the solid artistic foundation, keen awareness of creativity, and attachment to the homeland of the young generation of students, and reflect the view of nature, love for the homeland, and the views on art and creativity rooted in the people's mind.
The works on display have attracted the attention of many teachers and students. For example, student Yang Yi's Green Mountains and Clear Waters presents characters vividly through a few strokes. Student Gong Zicheng’s wood carving work Not Myself presents the thought-provoking image of a thinker through a dozen pieces of carved and processed rough wood. Student Ding Ting’s work Happy to See the Rice Billowing in the Wind engraves the image of Yuan Longping holding rice through a copper plate sculpture, offering the audience a new angle to look at the scientists.
It is reported that some of the works on display have won awards and shown in national and municipal exhibitions. The event will run until November 24, and visitors can visit the exhibition free of charge with ID cards. (Translated by Yuki, Fathom Language Limited)
