On this warm day, the Taiwan Alumni Liaison Office of China Central Academy of Fine Arts was established in Taichung and held some alumni work exhibitions. I would like to express my warm congratulations on behalf of my alma mater! And extend my heartfelt greetings to all Taiwan alumni!

China Central Academy of Fine Arts has played an important role in the cultural and academic exchanges between the two sides of the Taiwan Strait. The Gein College has a long history of running schools and has a profound academic heritage. In history.

Many alumni of the older generation went to Taiwan to study art and broadcast on the island. They are well-known in the Taiwanese painting circle and form a bond of cross-strait art exchanges. For many years, China Central Academy of Fine Arts has had many exchanges and cooperation with various art schools and art institutions in Taiwan.

Conducting academic seminars, exhibition exchanges, and visiting education training, building a broad platform for cross-strait art exchanges. The new generation of Taiwanese alumni of China Central Academy of Fine Arts respected their teachers during their studies at the school.

Worked hard, and achieved excellent results in different majors. After graduation, they may start their own businesses in the mainland or return to Taiwan to develop and become new messengers of cross-strait exchanges.

The Taiwan Alumni Liaison Office was established here, and some alumni work exhibitions were planned with the theme of "Compassion and Empathy". Everyone met on a date, reflecting the love of Taiwan alumni for their alma mater and the spiritual realm of helping each other with their classmates.

Here, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the alumni of Zhong Jingxin and all of you for their sincere friendship, and especially to the Elephant Art Space Museum for their support of the event!

After a century of development, China Central Academy of Fine Arts has been standing at a new starting point, focusing on changes in the times and new trends in global art education to strengthen discipline construction and deepen teaching reforms.

In terms of artistic creation and research, the entire school's teachers and students are working hard to carry forward the excellent tradition, continue to innovate and maintain academic advantages. The career development of alumni is an integral part of the cause of the alma mater.

The school is proud of its alumni, and alumni give glory to the alma mater. For this reason, we need to work together. I especially hope that the Taiwan Alumni Liaison Office will become an emerging force to promote and expand cross-strait art exchanges and make new contributions to the prosperity and development of Chinese culture.

I wish all alumni a successful career and a bright future.

Since the establishment of the Central Academy of Fine Arts, China Central Academy of Fine Arts has survived many wars and turmoil in the past century and has continued to stand and promote and nurture outstanding talents at the academic and artistic levels. Because of the persistence of the predecessors, there is a gathering of alumni today.

In the face of the current epidemic, the Taiwan Alumni Liaison Office of China Central Academy of Fine Arts upholds the same spirit. After several studies and judgments, it still decided to exhibit this exhibition and hold the opening ceremony of the Liaison Office as scheduled. It is the first alumni association with special significance.

It is hoped that this original intention can be continued and leave eternal footprints in the academic hall of art.

Associate Professor Hongmei, the curator of this exhibition, sent a video to congratulate the establishment of the Taiwan Alumni Liaison Office and the opening of the Alumni Art Association. She wrote in the curatorial preface: "We are so similar and so different; we are so close.

But We are still far away; we agree with this, but we are still unfamiliar; we are separated by two straits, but we are close to each other; we are all islands of each other, as long as we are willing, with the artist’s unique “empathy” and “empathy”, Build bridges between many islands.

I hope that this exhibition is the beginning, not the end of the "China Central Academy of Fine Arts Taiwan Alumni Liaison Office and Alumni Art Joint Exhibition"; it is a process, not a result; it is an attitude, not a goal; It's a bridge, not an island!"

They also engaged in different artistic practices and creations. . This exhibition conveys that the artist, as a self-fulfiller, will focus on exhibiting through a variety of artworks, with different styles of artistic expression.

Hoping to arouse the hidden "empathy" and "empathy" in people's hearts, and to think about the depths of human nature together, And enlighten the good original intention, understand and tolerate each other's differences, learn from each other and grow together, and jointly promote the harmonious operation of society.

The two sides of the strait that are separated are so similar but also so different; so close but still far away, only empathy and empathy can unite people's hearts. Limited by the epidemic, the school was unable to send an official representative to attend the event.

Some Taiwan alumni who originally planned to participate in the event were unable to arrive on time. However, the epidemic cannot prevent the urgent desire for cultural and artistic exchanges between the two sides of the strait. As outstanding representatives of the students of China Central Academy of Fine Arts.

We gather together in this special period and hope that through the establishment of the Taiwan Alumni Liaison Office of China Central Academy of Fine Arts and the holding of alumni art joint exhibitions, we will build a bridge and link together in academic and artistic ways. The islands in the heart contribute to the cultural and artistic exchanges between the two sides of the strait.
