Timeline of painting

The great leaps in technology have transformed the method and presentation of artistic creativity, but although no longer as dominant as it was once, painting remains the main canvas — quite literally — upon which many express themselves.

Questionings on Painting: a World Task, an exhibition at the Art Museum of the Central Academy of Fine Arts, examines the multiple orientations five artists have been exploring with paint over the years. Their paintings are representative of the painterly language of both established and emerging artists of varying ages. Chen Lei's work is grounded in the images, half-figurative and half-abstract, preserved in his memories. Chen Xi revisits a running rabbit as her main motif to demonstrate the changing mentalities of people in a world that is quickly evolving. Dai Zengjun opens up a dialogue on life with a vibrant palette and strokes of passion. Wu Xiaohai dwells on the spirituality of nature and lives lived in the wild, while Wang Xiyao's work shows the influence of living and working in a globalized context.

The exhibition is the first of its kind to be mounted by the Research Center of Contemporary Art Critics and Curation at the Central Academy of Fine Arts since its recent establishment. It runs until April 20.

9:30 am-5:30 pm, closed on Mondays. 8 Huajiadi Nanjie, Wangjing, Chaoyang district, Beijing. 010-6477-1575.
