Revolution Curated: Original Art of Yan’an’s New Society 1955 - 1984

Fri, Jan 18
  • 1355 West 3100 South, West Valley City, UT 84119
The exhibit, privately owned by Combat Film’s Dodge Billingsley, includes the work of several artists known as the Cave Artists Group who worked under the direction of Beijing based artist Jin Zhilin.  Jin was sent to Yan’an in the midst of the Cultural Revolution (1966-1976) where he recruited local artists to study art at the Yan’an Masses Art Studio that he directed.The collection includes Jin’s early work from the 1950s, which was heavily influenced by Soviet Social Realism, work produced during the Cultural Revolution (1966-1976) that towards the end was illustrative of the Revolutionary Romanticism engulfing the arts in China, and works from the post-Cultural Revolution period (late 1970s-early 1980s), reflecting more traditional themes and aspects of local culture that Jin encouraged his students to study.
