In response to General Secretary Xi Jinping’s call in the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China for building stronger cultural confidence and helping socialist culture to flourish, the Exhibition of Outstanding Artworks from the 13th Guangdong Art Festival hosted by the Department of Culture of Guangdong Province and organized by Guangdong Museum of Art was held to showcase a brand new appearance of Guangdong Province since the reform and opening-up, in the hope of inspiring the people to strengthen the belief, forge ahead and realize the “Chinese Dream”, and facilitate the prosperity of art in Guangdong Province.
Guangdong Art Festival is a professional art festival of the highest level in the province. Since the 12th Guangdong Art Festival, the Exhibition of Outstanding Artworks has been included as a new session to be held simultaneously with the Guangdong Art Festival. The exhibits feature traditional Chinese paintings, oil paintings, woodblock prints, sculptures, watercolors, gouaches, photos, mixed media works, and other works with distinctive characteristics and styles, giving full play to the rich and diverse nature of fine arts in Guangdong Province.
All the exhibits were collected by Departments of Culture, Radio, Film, TV, Press and Publication above the prefecture-level and submitted to the Department of Culture of Guangdong Province. After two rounds of reviews and evaluations, over 180 among a total of more than 600 pieces of works were selected for the exhibition. These are all outstanding works created over the past three years, displaying the great spirit of the nation and the times, singing the praise of the opening-up and reform and modernization drive, and highlighting the themes of the times. These works of diversified styles reflect the high-level unity of Guangdong art creation in ideological, artistic and academic aspects. The Exhibition of Outstanding Artworks from the 13th Guangdong Art Festival is sure to present the audience with a spectacular feast of fine arts in Guangdong Province.
