Fine Arts

Six representatives of China’s Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts (GAFA) visited UVic’s Faculty of Fine Arts on Oct. 5. In addition to a campus tour, a luncheon with representatives from UVic’s Centre for Asia-Pacific Initiatives and Office of International Affairs, and a lecture by GAFA scholar Wu Yangbo, there was also an exchange of gifts and the signing of a memorandum of understanding to pursue future student and faculty exchanges.

“I am very hopeful that we can forge a strong relationship with GAFA that will provide our students with the opportunity to study in China, and our faculty the chance to learn about Chinese art practices from visiting students and faculty,” said Dr. Sarah Blackstone, dean of Fine Arts. 

GAFA is one of the top eight fine arts schools in China.
