Branching out from previous solo shows on the renowned Chinese painter, this exhibition offers a fresh look and newfound appreciation for Wu as an influential art educator. It spotlights the artistic exchange between Wu and his students at the Central Academy of Art & Design who attended his outdoor sketching classes. Together, they sought to explore new artistic styles borne out of formalist aesthetics and individualistic experimentations.
The exhibition will feature sketches by Wu, selected drawings by his students and rare archival material including photographs, manuscripts, notes and art journals that document Wu’s beliefs on art education and his pedagogical concepts.
Venue: National Gallery Singapore
When: 20 Feb - 26 Sep 2021,
