“The art diaries exposed in this collective students’ exhibition are the starting point of everyone’s dream. The fulfillment of a dream entails effort and hard work along the entire process. But most importantly the process must be full of hope and happiness, and this is exactly what these art diaries represent. All these diaries floating in the air are like young people brimming with joy and happiness. And I am deeply touched by the numerous records of their joy. As a school, this is what we have been eager to have around us all the time. A seemingly simple and ordinary feeling, one you are used to ignore, shining now brightly and charmingly, brightening the sky, the land and the sea. Their happiness is the dream of ArtBox.” - the Principal, Mr. Tao, said.
The opening saw the special attendance of many: the Italian Consul, the Shanghai Education TV, professors of the East China Normal University and of the Istituto Marangoni of Fashion Art and Design. A brief but friendly introduction about the contents of the exhibition, its meaning and what is behind the story stirred the guests curiosity leading them upstairs to the main exhibition on the second floor.
The art diaries hanging from the ceiling in this room are the main art works of this exhibition. They vary in scale and shape, color and medium. They are held by strong strings. There are spotlights aiming right towards them, just like their own moon. The room is the sky and the art diaries are the stars shining quietly and brightly, enveloping the hope of students and teachers.
The realization of some of them took several months, some others over a year. From the first to the last page, from the header to the footer of each single page, they all record and narrate the growth and changes of the artists who created them.
At one corner of the hall a long black table with a sketchbook on top and a big red chair. Two lights hit the table, dreamlike. A pen near the book and a variety of brushes. This corner is meant for anyone who wants to leave a note or a sketch.
The ingenuity of this interactive experience has become everyone's affirmation for the nigh , and in two hours more than half of our thick art sketchbook was filled. Moving around the exhibition hall to draw inspiration or sitting on a chair on the creative corner, this special night is destined to leave our guests with different art memories.
伴随着最后一位嘉宾依依不舍的离开，本次开幕式也落下了帷幕。值得一提的是，参加‘开合 art diaries’ 展览的嘉宾对于展览反响很好。原定于8月19日至8月27日（周一闭展）的展览，我们特别延续一周。时间变为8月19日至9月3日（周一闭展），艺术合子每天从10:00-17:00都欢迎大家的到来，亲自体验这盛夏里的一份清凉，用艺术发现更多的可能。
