In the world of art, there is a female power that can not be ignored. They create extraordinary works with women's perspective, women's mind and women's dexterity, showing people the passion and love for life of female artists. An important chapter in the art history of the 20th century is the field of women's art. Feminist art emerged in the wave of the second feminist movement and became an important part of the post-modern cultural trend of thought. In contemporary times, female power is even more important to inspire artistic inspiration.
I vaguely remember the wonderful presentation of the 13th "Her Presence in Colours " Exhibition of INWAC in 2018. Now it has been three years since the last group exhibition. "Her Presence in Colours " world women Artists series exhibition was founded in 1993, held every two years in a country or branch, each session a theme, up to now has been established 29 years.
Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 in 2020, the 14th INWAC Exhibition could not be held as scheduled. Ms. Cheng Lanmei, general President of INWAC , regretfully changed the 14th group exhibition to "online group exhibition" in order not to interrupt the practice of biennial group exhibition. Fortunately, with the development of science and technology, art still has no national boundaries and women's art can continue to speak out.
With the theme of "To promote filial piety" and the keynote of "passing affection and gratitude", the 14th Exhibition of "Her Presence in Colours " exhibition hopes to become the spiritual power of social stability and development through the expression of female art. Female art involves a series of contemporary cultural issues related to gender and identity, contrary to tradition and habit, and even inseparable from history and society. Female art is an ongoing and vivid contemporary art phenomenon.
The online exhibition invited 66 female artists exhibition at home and abroad, including from China (Beijing, Shanghai, Jinan, Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan), Mongolia, France, Malaysia, Vietnam, Canada, Italy, and the United States, they are from a different Angle, through the different art forms to express women's point of view, show a woman's self expression and creativity. They thought from the Angle of art, showing their understanding of "filial piety", everyone's life process is the artistic presentation of life.
Under the leadership of Ms. Yuan Ziling, "Her Presence in Colours " Exhibition has been guided by the personality and artistic achievements of the older generation of artists since the first group exhibition, and the inclusive culture and aesthetic spirit of various countries as the theme, always walking in the development direction of the World Council of Women Artists. Until now, led by Zheng Lan beauty of 13, 14 session of exhibition on the basis of the previous exhibition, also keep up with the pace of The Times, follow the evolution of cultural development of self-discipline, through the language of art, more clearly the original intention of the world council of women artists, not only for the main body, but also a kind of aesthetic view, go deep into the world culture taste, about life, Contribute to the society, love nature, motherland, promote world peace and other topics.
"Her Presence in Colours " series always conveys the spirit of mutual learning and love beyond national boundaries, which is the crystallization of female artists in the world. In the years to come, will carry forward, cultivate more gorgeous flowers of art, for the world women's real liberation and explore women's art career to make valuable contributions, all the process is about the promotion of life and the sublimation of works!
Women are the eternal theme of art, and female art is to be continued...
