Art Through the Cultural Revolution

Along with “From the Masses to the Masses: Art of the Yan’an Cave Artists Group” a film documentary

The exhibit includes the work of several artists known as the Cave Artists Group (Yaodong Huapai) who worked under the direction of Beijing based artist Jin Zhilin. Jin, a student of Xu Beihong and later a contemporary of Constantine Maximov at the Beijing Academy of Fine Arts, was sent to Yan’an in the midst of the Cultural Revolution (1966-1976) where he recruited local artists such as Feng Shanyun, Chen Sanqiao, Song Ruxin, and others to study art at the Yan’an Masses Art Studio that he directed.

More Information

Yan’an was the Chinese Communists’ revolutionary capital in Shaanxi Province in northwestern China for thirteen years (1936-1949). Although a remote and poor rural area, Yan’an has a strong folk art tradition. However, Yan’an is unique because of its rich revolutionary traditions. Following the Maoist dictum of “learning from the masses,” Jin Zhilin required his students to go to the countryside and study local folk art with peasant artists. Jin’s students incorporated Shaanxi folk art influences, such as paper cutting, into their woodblock prints. The art in the collection reflects these elements of local folk art and the historical significance of the region. Art was created using various mediums: woodcuts, watercolors (gouache) and oil. Woodcuts and watercolors were more common because oil painting in the countryside at the time was less practical.

The collection includes Jin’s early work from the 1950s, which was heavily influenced by Soviet Social Realism, work produced during the Cultural Revolution (1966-1976) that towards the end was illustrative of the Revolutionary Romanticism engulfing the arts in China, and works from the post-Cultural Revolution period (late 1970s-early 1980s), reflecting more traditional themes and aspects of local culture that Jin encouraged his students to study. Geographic landmarks such as the Yan’an pagoda, traditional Shaanxi cave residences, the headdress worn by local Shaanxi men, and influences of local folk art are common characteristics of the works of the Cave Artist Group that emerged under Jin Zhilin’s influence.

The collection is original and was acquired in numerous trips to China between 1999-2008. The art of the exhibit was not originally created to be sold, as there was no commercial value to art at that time. Instead, art was utilized for social and political purposes. In the case of the woodblocks, making only a few copies before shaving the block for a new woodcut was common. In most cases the artists were not even sure what happened to their work once it was turned over to local authorities to be reviewed and exhibited in support of domestic and even international policy initiatives. As a result, nearly all of the pieces are the only known copies to exist.

Period photographs and two documentary films will be part of this exhibition.

This exhibition is the result of a collaboration with the UVU International Center director Danny Damron, the collection owner Dodge Billingsly (Combat Films site” href=”http://www.combatfilms.com” Visit his film company web site COMBAT FILMS AND RESEARCH), and the UVU Woodbury Art Museum. It is anticipated that there will be many other accompanying events, symposia and lectures with participation from various quarters of the university.

Children’s Eat Work & Play Exhibit

Art, Painting, Children, FishLincoln Elementary School and the Utah Museum of Fine Arts have creatively collaborated to creat the exhibit ‘Community: Eat, Work, Play.’ With the guidance of UMFA educators, the students have created large scale murals that will be displayed in the education gallery at the museum.

Go West Art Exhibit

“Go West, young man, go West and grow up with the country,” the newspaper editor Horace Greeley advised his readers in 1865. The familiar quotation* registers a number of attitudes and concerns that characterized mid-19th century America: beliefs surrounding societal progress and social evolution; Go West Art Exhibit Salt Lake City Art Centerbeliefs (and doubts) about a stable and vigorous masculinity; and beliefs about independence and personal freedom. Such attitudes about the West intruded on and determined the kinds of stories that America came to tell about itself, the mythic ideas and iconographies it produced-stories and myths and icons that are alive today.

Go West brings together twenty contemporary artists who are engaged in an excavation of myths and ideologies of the old West. Working in a range of media (including painting, works on paper, sculpture, photography, and video), these artists offer up critical reflections on the West as both destination and destiny. Go West considers the varied reasons people came west over the years: some, like the Cherokee Indians, were forcibly moved west, while others, like the Mormons, sought exile here; some came in search of fame and fortune, while others staked their claim to a separatist space, away from mainstream society. The exhibition further explores such topics as: “promised lands,” the West as utopia, wilderness and land use, expansion and sprawl, and tropes of the frontiersman and cowboy.
