Revolution Curated: Original Art of Yan’an’s New Society 1955 - 1984

Rich in the folk traditions of rural peasant artists, Revolution Curated is an historical collection that highlights China’s Cultural Revolution as experienced by artists.

The exhibit, privately owned by Combat Film’s Dodge Billingsley, includes the work of several artists known as the Cave Artists Group who worked under the direction of Beijing based artist Jin Zhilin.  Jin was sent to Yan’an in the midst of the Cultural Revolution (1966-1976) where he recruited local artists to study art at the Yan’an Masses Art Studio that he directed.

The collection includes Jin’s early work from the 1950s, which was heavily influenced by Soviet Social Realism, work
