Photography project KABK and China Central Academy of Fine Arts
18-4-2012

Photography Exhibition

Ten photography students of both the Royal Academy of Art (KABK) in The Hague and the China Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA) in Beijing participate in the exhibition ‘Struggle’. The official opening of the exhibition in Beijing will be at the 11th of April at 15.00 hr in presence of mister Rudolf Bekink, ambassador of the Kingdom of The Netherlands in China and the opening in The Hague will be at the 18th of April at 17.00 hr in presence of mister Zhang Jun, ambassador of the People’s Republic of China in The Netherlands.

The exchange project of the photography departments of the KABK and CAFA resulted in an exhibition and a catalogue in both countries. Students are able to share experiences and learn from each other’s expertise thanks to this kind of collaborations. Head of the Photography department in Beijing, Miao Xiaochun, supervised the students in China and head of the Photography department in The Hague, Corinne Noordenbos, did the same in The Netherlands. Both of them also visited the partner academy to give feedback to the students. The art academies help to set up the exhibition in both countries too. The KABK is very content with the collaboration; CAFA is one of the most prestigious art academies in China. Furthermore, the Photography department there has a team of highly qualified teachers and possesses a diversity of equipment.

All twenty participants created their work according to the theme ‘Struggle’. Strikingly, both Chinese and Dutch students specifically draw on personal experiences in their work. In China, this often leads to staging while Dutch students generally represent reality in their work.

The exhibition is shown from the 11th of April till the 25th of April in the China Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing. It is opened from the 18th of April until the 11th of May in the gallery of the Royal Academy of Art at the Prinsessegracht 4 in The Hague. A catalogue of all works will be available at the exhibition.

 

Participants of the exhibition are: Lu Shan, Charlotte Brandt, Gao Rongguo, Tim Zwitser, Dong Yuehang, Joel Nieminen, Zhang Xiaodi, Evelien Jaspers, Leng Wen, Mascha Jansen, Che Kuai, Aniek Mol, Yan Baoshen, Lisandro Suriel, Liu Di, Laurence Harms, He Fa, Gabi Van Ingen, Zhang Chao and Jolien Jong.

The exhibition is sponsored by the Dutch Ambassy in Beijing, the Royal Academy of Art and China Central Academy of Fine Arts.
