Art and the Question of Personal Expression

“Art to Me” looks to the skills that are acquired within an art academy – here, the Department of Oil Painting in the Xi’an Academy of Fine Arts (XAFA) – by students who studied at XAFA between 1998 and 2003. The works on display reveal how the experience of learning presents innumerable possibilities for each student and, as a result, achieves an endless variety of experiences once the students graduate. Not least, the diverse ways in which the skills acquired have been applied since.
On May 12th, OCAT executive director Karen Smith will talk with curator Yue Yang about “Art to Me” and the diversity as well as inclusiveness of Art.

Yue Yang was born in Xinjiang in 1981. She graduated from Xi’an Academy of Fine Arts, Department of Oil Painting with a Master’s degree in 2007. She is currently completing a Ph.D. in Painting. She lives and works between Beijing and Xi’an.
