2020 Online Graduation Exhibition : Department of Painting | Perseverance and Skepticism

Department of Painting



Message from the Director of the Department


"Online Exhibition" is a special way we have adopted in 2020 to complete the graduation exhibition of our students. Classrooms, exhibition halls, studios, and teacher-student face-to-face communication have been replaced by various virtual network tools such as Lotus Pond-Rain Classroom, Tencent Meeting, ZOOM and TingTalk. The network, originally considered as a good learning aid, has become the whole vehicle of our study now. We have never imagined what it would be like, and have never had such an experience. We may not be fully prepared for it yet, but it has really arrived.


As a result of the restrictions imposed by this special period, students' creative conditions may not be as convenient as those of Tsinghua campus studios, the materials available are not so rich, and large-scale works may not be realized, but we still see that our students have overcome all kinds of difficulties and inconveniences to complete diverse, rich and pluralistic works, expressing not only the visual touch in face of the special period, but also the inner feelings brought by the abrupt change of lifestyle and rhythm. From every stroke, every texture and every color, we can find your youthful passion and experience, and feel your subtle observation of and love for life.


With multi-level international exchanges, abundant academic lectures and workshops, high-quality professional exhibitions and academic activities, etc., the Department of Painting offers students with as many ways and opportunities as possible while they are at Tsinghua, so that they can intuitively feel the true state and future trends of various art forms. This is just a beginning, not the end.


Whatever form it takes, the graduation exhibition is an important part of students' art study, as it is a summary and presentation of their professional study, thinking and reflections at the Department of Painting. This is just a comma, not the full stop.


Upon graduation, if you are critical about the society, and have the desire and impulse to pick up a brush for creation, as well as the passion for artistic expression and catharsis, then go to harvest your artistic achievements through hard work, through the artist's thinking and judgment, and with the spirit of perseverance and skepticism. When you are not ready, you may encounter all kinds of challenges and setbacks; when you solve the problems and difficulties, you can also see magnificent sceneries on mountain peaks, which will be your life achievements.


After this special period, when you have time, please return to the Tsinghua campus for a walk, re-visit our department and take a seat at our studios, smell the familiar and long-lost aura, and talk with us about your recent state and changes.
