This series of events turned the Liangzhu campus into a vibrant hub of artistic reaction, facilitating an enriching exchange of ideas and fostering a spirit of mutual learning among civilizations.

Gao Shiming, president of the academy, says that it is a long-term project that aims to reconsider the fundamental issues of art education from the perspective of world civilization history. The project is designed to interweave diverse disciplines internally, broaden both the conceptual and practical realms of art, while forging novel connections externally and constructing a network of international academic partnerships.

"This is a post-pandemic era 'Academic Initiative' and also a part of our academy's journey toward the centennial of our founding," he says, adding that the goal is to transcend existing concepts of art history and professional views, to reopen the vistas of art and the concerns of the academy, interpreting the history of civilization through art and understanding art from the height of civilization history.

According to Jiang Jun, general planner of the series of events, the exhibition has been held across the entirety of the Liangzhu campus, transforming it into a comprehensive theater with cultural exchange as its central theme.

"We want students to actively engage with various scenes," Jiang says.
