After graduation, my long-term goal is to become a professional artist, and I will continue to work in fine art. I will hold a solo exhibition every year. My short-term goal is to enter the university as a tutor. In my free time besides work, I will continue to start my artistic creation and learn relevant theoretical knowledge to apply for a PhD.
About future exhibitions:
During university at Camberwell, I discussed with my classmates from Drawing and Painting to hold an exhibition at Copeland Gallery. However, the exhibition was not held as scheduled due to the impact of Covid-19. The exhibition may be postponed at the Copeland Gallery in London, but the specific time has not yet been determined.
(Figure 1: Exhibition poster)
I am preparing to hold a solo exhibition. I will plan the details of the exhibition together with the curator. The theme of the exhibition is ‘pathological society’. This exhibition will show all my works during my studies at UAL. The final exhibition location is probably Zhengzhou, Henan Province, China.
After graduation, most of the Chinese students of MA Drawing and Painting will return to China. I will create a discussion group. The members of the discussion group will be students who are willing to hold exhibitions together. Since we live in different cities, every year or two years, we will plan to let students from various cities contact local galleries to hold itinerant exhibitions. The first exhibition works will include works from our university at UAL.
Regarding potential partners:

Currently, I work at the PS-ONE Art Study Abroad Counseling Organization. My colleague Wang Anqi graduated from the MA Interaction Design Communication course at London College of Communication. I will have a lot of time to work with her. In the future, my work has a great possibility to conduct cross-professional research related to the interaction major.
