Let's Walk Into the Magical "Art Gallery"- Written for the Start of the Extraordinary 2020 Graduation Season of Central Academy of Fine Arts
Party Secretary: Gao Hong
The annual graduation season of Central Academy of Fine Arts is here again.
This year's graduation season is extraordinary.
Because of the epidemic, we can no longer turn our campus into a large art gallery, so that every student’s graduation work can be presented on campus.
We can no longer hold a series of graduation season activities on campus that will make our students remember for life.
We can no longer invite relatives and friends from all walks of life to enter our campus, the art gallery, appreciating the graduation works, and communicating face-to-face.
We respond to the country's anti-epidemic requirements and put teachers and students' health and safety first. At the same time, our academic philosophy on the graduation season is unwavering. As our important brand of education, the graduation season is also a festival for every graduate!
In the spirit of innovation and the pursuit of excellence, we have elaborately created this unique graduation season.
Our graduation supervisors carefully guided graduation works and graduation thesis online, providing students academic guidance, spiritual encouragement and psychological support, and put forward higher and stricter standards and requirements.
Our students have overcome many difficulties. They have carefully created graduation works and written graduation thesis at home, and have carefully designed wonderful online presentation modes, so as to practice new skills.
Our graduation season design team and our sincerely cooperative production team have created a new online everlasting graduation exhibition that reflects the characteristics and charm of Central Academy of Fine Arts.
We are pleasantly surprised at every "door" in the "Art Gallery", which links students' in-depth thinking, academic pursuit and story creation. We are pleasantly surprised at every "space" and every beam of light in the "Art Gallery", which allows us to look at each piece of work in greater detail from macro to micro, and from full perspective to every angle.
We hope that our classrooms and studios will be placed in this "Art Gallery" to conscientiously sum up the gains and losses of our education, and nurture the talent cultivation in the future.
We hope that our students will be in this "Art Gallery", reviewing the learning gains again, and opening up the artistic life of becoming an outstanding artist.
We look forward to friends from all parts of society to step in this "Art Gallery" to join us in caring for the growth of new art seedlings and creating a favorable atmosphere for their healthy growth.
This is a warm festival, an educational activity, and an academic discussion to cultivate outstanding artists in the new era. We appreciate the new opportunities brought by challenges!
We feel the new hope that the new graduates bring us!
We deeply practice the spirit of school motto of "Penetrate the refined and subtle, and reach the breadth and greatness".
Let’s review General Secretary Xi Jinping's warm wishes of “Cultivate students with heart of love, and create immortal works with superb skills” in his letter to our old professor on the occasion of the centennial celebration of the Central Academy of Fine Arts.
The 2020 graduation season of Central Academy of Fine Arts is now open!
Please join us in this magical and unique "Art Gallery".
Birth in Spring and Thrive in Summer
Speech for the 2020 Online Graduation Season of Central Academy of Fine Arts
President: Fan Di’an
The spring and summer of 2020 is destined to become the common memory of mankind. The global spread of the new crown pneumonia epidemic has caused the earth to reverberate with the sadness of mourning the loss of life and the brave song of fighting to prevent and control. Confronted with such a sudden disaster, art is almost powerless, but art is ultimately sympathetic and reliable. Central Academy of Fine Arts fully launched online teaching, and all teachers and students worked together to overcome the difficulties of the epidemic with sincere sentiment for art and insistence on academic duties, and held the position of education. The most valuable is the perseverance and hard work of all graduates and supervisors who have won a glory for the academy with excellent graduation works and thesis and gained a fulfilling journey for themselves. All graduation works therefore have special connotation and will become an artistic proof of our participating in the nationwide fight against the epidemic.
Since the founding of the "Graduation Season of Central Academy of Fine Arts " in 2015, CAFA has held the art festival every time on the scale of having the campus becomes an art gallery. It has built a broad platform for the display of works from different disciplines and professions on the same stage, and has become a bridge to spread the achievements of talent training to the society and to promote the employment and entrepreneurship of students. Although this year's graduation season cannot carry out on-site exhibitions, the academy decided to use an online method to help students to show their talents in the cloud and to give back to the society. The whole preparation process is full of expectations and creations.
Despite the rapid development of network technology, online art exhibitions and virtual art galleries do not have a fixed formula. In order to be as perfect as possible in display and viewing, the academy's planning team and many teachers in various departments have invested great effort. Net Dragon Websoft Inc., which undertakes the overall research and development work, used the latest technology, and nearly one hundred employees worked day and night to make the large-scale exhibition in the online graduation season unique and engaging. The students’ works will enter the spacious space of CAFA Art Gallery, where audiences can appreciate their appearance far away and watch their details closely. They can also open layers of links to enter the world of thinking and creation of each author. The three-dimensional, enrichment and expansion of the online graduation season of CAFA have exceeded the existing level and would contribute the latest experience to the social communication of contemporary art. The epidemic made us separate, but it could not block our communication. The graduation season is the flower season of the academy. This year, in particular, the firmness of faith and the strength of life are blooming. From then to now, from spring to summer, the time and space and you and me, all have teachers and students feel warm and hopeful.
It was a memorable time for the hard working in the academy then,
It is an exciting moment to come to the society now.
Held a dream in tower of ivory then,
Walk into the mortal world now.
Full of the scholar's noble rage, we criticized with all our might then,
Bright spirit at its height, we fight intrepidly with the waves now.
Youth was shining through grinding then,
Life is sublimated by struggle now.
Knew the world through art then,
Reflect the world with art now.
Saw creativity from beauty then,
Produce beauty by creating now.
Students looked forward to the glory of their alma mater then,
The alma mater is delighted with the achievements of students now.
