PROJECTLong March Project––Yan'an (2006-2007)

Project Description

The terminal of the 6000-mile Long March by the Chinese Red Army, Yan’an is a laboratory for conceiving an ideal society and an archetype of the socialist utopia. It is also the starting point of the new Long March. “Long March Project—Yan’an” examined the effects of globalization on social and cultural development in China through a dialogue between history and the present. The project invited renowned art educators across the country to attend a forum on art education, and led participating artists on a field trip in Yan’an, which resulted in a group exhibition in Beijing of exclusively commissioned works in the end of 2007.
