Chung-Ang University's exhibition planning team for the department of Western Painting, held their 12th exhibition in a new place this year; on campus.
As the title, ‘Just Happened to Be an Adult’ implies, the exhibition is to portray adults who are experiencing growing pains. The students who engaged in the work are also pre-mature adults who have the same concerns in life and thus, could enjoy while producing the exhibition; the exhibition also endeavored to prioritize the main audience, Chung-Ang University students, so that they could understand and share their worries and concerns by appreciating the works. Through the style of exhibition, which is public art, the Team of Western Painting students tried to help other students of various other majors to approach ‘art’ without barriers.
The pieces are divided into four big sections. First, a ‘survey for adults’ was set up on the R&D Square to convey a message that ‘we are adults but still each one of us has childish aspects’. Through the survey, the participants will acknowledge the inner side of themselves. Second, ‘a hundred young children’ is the work that holds the same goal as the ‘survey for adults’. A hundred adults will receive candies and their responses will be observed and through that, the childish side of them will be unveiled. The third work piece ‘Things we had lost’ is set up at the Dragon Pond, and it is to portray growing pains and childlike innocence. The goal of this is to alert students of their original intentions in life. The last work called ‘six problems’ is located everywhere on the campus. It is designed to deliver a message that students should not stick to the standards or social norms that adults have previously made, but rather try to think outside of the box. < 저작권자 © 중앙헤럴드 무단전재 및 재배포금지 >
