Hi, I'm Yu Xia. I'm trying to raise money for my M.A. Final Project. My final project is to curate an oil painting exhibition. It would be my first step to achieve my career goal, which is to be a professional curator.

Event title:

Inside Out: Outside In

-- Oil Painting Exhibition of Chenyi Sun

Medium: Oil on Canvas

Introduction of the curator:

Hi there! My name is Yu Xia. I’m the Inside Out: Outside In exhibition’s curator. I came from China. Now I'm studying and living in Savannah, GA. Inside Out: Outside In will be my M.A. final project for my graduation from Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD). It is my first time to conduct an exhibition independently. However, I have prepared for being a curator since I was a freshman in China. Both of my undergraduate and graduate majors are Arts Management. I believe this exhibition will be my first step to be a professional curator.

Introductionof the artist:

Chenyi Sun (1991, Shanghai, China),

2011-2015

BFA in SIVA-Fudan University Shanghai Institute of Visual Art in Shanghai (CH).

2015-Now

Studying MFA-Master of Fine Arts of painting in Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) in Savannah, GA 

“I love painting. Art to me, it is about life because it can always communicate with me, and I prefer to express my feelings and thoughts on canvases… This series of my works is mainly to express the feelings of the isolation and the loneliness. They are different from the silence of Edward Hopper and David Hockney's works. I try to express and explore the complicated relationships between people in the present society, by painting different spaces, different people, and different stories.”
