The ongoing exhibition 上海龙凤1314anghai is presented i

x chapters. The first part, which is titled Leaders and the Revolution,

上海龙凤1314女神会所features artworks about the early life and achievements of Mao Zedong before 1949.

The second part, War and Peace, features heroic soldiers in the Long Mar

esistance against Japanese Aggression (1931-45) and in the Korean War (1950-53).

上海龙凤1314女神会所The third section comprises portraits of Chairman Mao from the 1960-70s when art was used as a ma

jor tool for politics. Art that was produced during this period can be easily identified by its distinctive style.

The other three chapters are about innovation and experiment上海龙凤1314女神会所

ation, the construction of New China, and the development of Chinese society.

上海龙凤1314″Chen Yifei already showed his extraordinary creative power with a series of hist

orical paintings … but in this piece he gave up the realistic creative methods which he used so adeptly,” says Ch上海龙凤1314

en Lyusheng, referring to the exhibition centerpiece Thinking of the Seven Decades of History at My Space.

上海龙凤1314女神会所According to Chen Lyusheng, the work features a combination of multiple layers of blurred images of his

torical events and a painting of the artist’s own back, making it seem as if he is meditating before history.

“It was a challenge to the established principles in the creation of hist上海龙凤1314

orical paintings in China,” Chen Lyusheng adds. “The artist Chen Yifei was exploring new po

上海龙凤1314女神会所
ssibilities in this field. The painting appeared in a special period of history after the ‘cultural revolution’ (1966-76), an

d was one of the first signs of post-modernism appearing in the Chinese art scene.”

Born in 1946, Chen Yifei was one of the first Chinese artists to win recognition in the internatio上海龙凤1314女神会所

nal art scene. In his later years, Chen established a business focused on visual art, achieving major br

eakthroughs in filmmaking, fashion design and publishing. He died in Shanghai in 2005.

In 2009, Wang bought Thinking of the Seven Decades of History at My Space for 43 million yuan ($6.25 million), making it th

e most valuable painting with a revolutionary theme in the Long Museum’s collection.

“Chen Yifei was an artist from Shanghai and so were my family

and me. It meant a lot to us to bring the painting back home to Shanghai,” said Wang.

African safari inspires L上海夜网 director Favreau

For most of us, it is just a daydream to quit our job, pull up stakes and travel around the world.

However, for Jon Favreau, doing just that may just have landed him上海夜网

the biggest project in his filmmaking career, after a six-month sabbatical to Africa earned him

上海夜网品茶微信the director’s chair on Disney’s $250 million live-action remake of its 1994 animation, The Lion King.

As one of the most anticipated blockbusters this summer, the new Lion King fi

lm will open across the Chinese mainland on Friday, a week earlier than North America.上海夜网

According to the producers, Favreau went on a safari to Africa six months befor

上海夜网品茶微信e even entering into talks with the Hollywood giant about taking the helm of the remake.

During his trip, the original film was used as frame of reference several times-first, when Favreau and other travelers saw a wart上海夜网

hog run past the safari vehicle and a member of the tour party started singing Hakuna Matata, a song from the mo

vie. The film was mentioned again later, when they saw several lions standing majestically on a rock.

上海夜网品茶微信In an introductory news release from Disney, Favreau says the Lion King story “pops up in music, on T

The Paris Opera Ballet stages Nureyev’s vivid production of the Tchaikovsky classic, Zhang Kun reports in Shanghai.

上海后花园女神会所The Paris Opera Ballet, the national ballet company of France, wra

pped up a week of performances on Friday in Shanghai, the only stop in China during its s

hort tour of Asia that saw the prominent dance company visit Singapore from June 21 to 23.上海后花园

It was just one of a series of events to celebrate the POB’s 350th anniversary. The compa

上海后花园女神会所ny presented four performances of Swan Lake in Shanghai from June 29 to July 1 and two per

formances of a gala show, featuring creations by three contemporary choreographers, that concluded on Friday.

The company made the decision to perform Swan Lake in Shanghai not only because it is on

e of the most beloved productions in the ballet world, famed for its robust energy and rich color. More imp

ortantly, the version created by Rudolf Nureyev (1938-93) is one that “best represents the style, aesthetics and cap

abilities of the Paris Opera Ballet”, says Flavien Moglia, executive president of the company.

Nureyev, one of the former Soviet Union’s best-known dancers, created a new versio

n of Swan Lake in 1984, when he was the director of the company. Also considered one of the greatest male ballet danc

ers of the 20th century, Nureyev brought a new depth to the ballet, especially by adding a psychological angle to

the role of the prince, says Jean-Guillaume Bart, a ballet master with the POB.Nureyev gave the story a Freudian di

mension, illuminating Tchaikovsky’s poetic dream with a profound sense of hopelessness, he adds.

In Nureyev’s Swan Lake, the dark wizard is an ambiguous figure. At first, he serves as a sort of tutor or guide to the prince, bef

ore gradually turning into a negative influence that mirrors the dark side of the prince. The contrast between the w

hite swan and black swan also reflects the two sides of the prince’s soul, Bart explains.

Also, Nureyev introduced difficult new movements and gestures into his choreography. “We hope audiences can appre

ciate the depth of Swan Lake, rather than just seeing it as a traditional and established ballet production.”
