A Relay Series Exhibition of China Central Academy of Fine Arts: Another Long March of Arts officially opened to the public at the National Art Museum of China in Beijing on December 24, 2016.

The exhibition was sponsored by the China Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA) in commemoration of the 80th Anniversary of the victory of the Chinese Red Army's Long March (1934-1936).

Exhibited works, which were produced in the form of traditional Chinese paintings, oil paintings, sculptures, engravings and other forms, aimed to showcase how art students and their teachers at CAFA have relearned history via artistic creations and how modern people perceive the Long March from a cultural perspective, as well as illustrate innovative explorations made by CAFA's students and faculty in their artistic productions.

According to organizers, students at CAFA and their teachers toured Jiangxi, Guizhou, Sichuan, Shaanxi, Gansu and other provinces, where the Red Army, under the leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC), covered during the Long March. They started their travels in November 2015 to collect relevant files, interview surviving participants of the epic event and further deepen their understanding of the event, with the aim of helping them produce more outstanding artistic works in relation to the Long March.

The exhibition is scheduled to be concluded on January 4.
