IMNU hosts national congress of art history

2019-10-17

The 13th Chinese Higher Education Congress of Art History was held at Xi’an Normal University from Oct 11-14, according to university officials.

Over 100 experts and academics from around the country attended the event. Wu Liji, secretary of the Party committee of the Art School of Inner Mongolia Normal University, was invited to be the host of the group forums. 

A number of hot academic topics were covered during the discussion, including the “Center and Margin of Art History",  "Narrative of Art History in the West", "Art and Intercultural Communication along Silk Road", "Village Public Art in International Vision" and "Local Resources in the Study of Art History". 

The IMNU edged out other contenders to be the next university staging the Chinese Higher Education Congress of Art History, after competing with the Xi’an Academy of Fine Arts and East China Normal University through a series of debates and presentations. 

Launched in 1954, the Inner Mongolia Normal University Art School -- the first and largest of its kind in the autonomous region -- has a history of more than 60 years. Dubbed "the cradle of fine arts and art education" in Inner Mongolia, the school has cultivated more than 8,000 artists from the autonomous region over the past seven decades.

Currently, the school has two academic master's programs: Fine Arts and Design. It also offers two types of professional master's degrees -- the MFA and MEd (Fine Arts). 

The Chinese Higher Education Congress of Art History was started in 2006 by the Central Academy of Fine Arts, aiming to canvass some of the latest ideas in global art development and widen Chinese academic perspectives in art appreciation. 

After more than 10 years of development, it has become a major event in China’s art study.
