Recently, the Consulate General of France in Wuhan and the New World China Land Company (Wuhan) signed a cooperation agreement, pledging to support a 3-year project on mutual artistic visits from 2016 to 2018.
After several investigations, this project has already launched its first phase under the theme of “New World :Transit Situation ”. On September 1, two teachers and six students from two French art schools arrived in Wuhan. They will benefit from a three-week residency at the New World Art Center, accompanied by 8 teachers and students of the Institute of Fine Arts Hubei. On 28 September, an exhibition will be held to display their works.
This initiative will contribute to the cultural interaction between China and France. For French artists, Wuhan is a new adventure for them and for local artists, they can recognize their hometown through their French friends.
These artists will travel to France to continue their artistic journey after their stay in Wuhan.
