Brown China Summit – Art Panel

Realizations of China Dreams: The Idea of Tracing Back

This panel will be in Mandarin.

Conflict has been created in the contemporary art world through the juxtaposition of social currents and traditional Chinese culture. Chinese artists are constantly probing the “Chinese Idea” in their attempts to identify their own roots that will provide platforms for further exploration for the new generation of Chinese youths. In the modern era, the Chinese youth are also giving their attention to how Chinese artists have incorporated culture and its differences into their artwork. These artists have also used their work to explore social conflict and have developed art into a culture unto itself that does not follow in the wake of mainstream trends.

Contemporary society values artistic creativity as a medium of communication that has the potential to surpass reality via its various forms, as it carries the cultural heritage of past cultures that is adapted to a modern interpretation of society. This not only influences the spiritual lives of the Chinese people, but it also draws international attention to Chinese culture. Hence, Chinese artists exploring modern art forms will in one way or another attempt to merge traditional concepts with their work. Their reflections on their own cultural roots have taken many forms, such as film, music and painting, which use the imagination to represent Chinese culture. Guest speakers of the art panel will illustrate their Chinese Dream through their stories and experience.

艺术分会 中国梦进行时 之寻根创意

1.  分会介绍

聚焦社会现实,融合中华民族古韵,中国艺术在世界现代艺术潮流中暗涌狂波,艺术家们在寻本土文化之根的过程中,不断探索“中国创意”,将艺术本身发展为一种文化,而非徒有空壳一味跟风的商业行为。在注重自主创意的当今社会,艺术,作为一股超越现实的独特潜力,通过不同形式的作品,直观地承载着国人对本土文化的传承,与其适应当今社会的现代化演绎。这不仅影响着国人的精神文化生活,更引导着全球看客对中国文化的瞩目。因此,在现代艺术的探索道路上,中国艺术家们异曲同工的将传统文化底蕴融于艺术作品当中。他们对根文化的思索,为电影、音乐、戏剧、绘画等艺术载体,创造了内容和形式上都独具中国创意的想象空间,在“中国创意”的舞台上不断更新、畅想着“中国梦”。本次峰会各位嘉宾将从自身经历出发为大家带来自己对“中国梦”的理解和诠释。

3.  分会提纲

1) 如今中国电影界商业化趋势日益显著,诸多电影作品走向高投入、大制作的商业化路线,电影人普遍面临失去创作本真的危险,对社会的真正关怀少之又少,这当然与整个当代社会呈现出的浮躁氛围密不可分。电影人以及戏剧、摄影、绘画、音乐艺术家们是否能够通过作品抓住社会的精神文化之根,从而影响和改变社会。请问各位嘉宾,您认为如何把握艺术创作中商业发展和文化价值的平衡,如何看待“将电影发展成为一种文化”。

2) 有新闻说一个艺术生考中央美院考了10年,每次都是专业课通过却因英语成绩遗憾落榜。现在各行各业都需要国际化,但对艺术这个领域,什么是国际化呢?是语言、形式、还是内容?是民族的是世界的,还是世界的是民族的?在选拔人才、实现中国梦的问题上, 会更看重人才的哪方面特质?

3) 对“中华文化之根”的理解是什么?反观西方古典文化对西方现代艺术各流派的影响,以此为鉴,中国现代艺术创作在“根文化”中可以寻求哪些方面的启发,中国艺术的创意空间何在?中国现代艺术在国际大舞台的发展中,艺术家们如何从中华文化之根基上做艺术创新?

4) 艺术的中国梦是什么?现阶段对中国艺术的发展方向有哪些期待?各位嘉宾的中国艺术梦是什么?在实现这一理想的过程中,当下还存在哪些困难和问题?
