Video Remembering Wu Guanzhong

TLF ID M012755

This is a slideshow of five artworks by renowned 20th-century Chinese artist, Wu Guanzhong (1919-2010). The slideshow is accompanied by an audio tribute to the artist by curator Melissa Chiu, which is also available as a text transcript. There is an enlargeable image of his landscape 'Camels in the desert' (1981), related hyperlinks, and a community blog for user responses to the tribute. Wu Guanzhong is considered to be the founder of contemporary Chinese landscape painting as he pushed the boundaries for using the traditional medium of ink.




Educational details

Educational value
  • This is a resource of great value for the Responding strand of the Visual arts curriculum in upper primary and lower secondary schooling. The content descriptions focus on students responding to the visual artworks of artists and considering the broader contexts of their works, and their contribution to the development of contemporary art. The resource gives students the opportunity to examine the paintings closely and to read and listen to a senior curator's response to the artist's career. Students can reflect on their own and other artists' works.
  • The resource contributes to students engaging with the cross-curriculum priority of Asia and Australia's relationship with Asia, particularly the fourth organising idea of the arts and literature of Asia influencing aesthetic and creative pursuits within Australia, the region and globally. The contribution of Wu Guanzhong as an innovative landscape artist has had a global impact on art.
