Event / 18 Sep 2017

Founded in 2012, the Guangzhou National Advertising Industrial Park (GAIP) is approved and supported the State Administration for Industry and Commerce of the People’s Republic of China. Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts (GAFA), the only one of its kind in South China, is the predecessor of Central South College of Fine Arts, a merger of South China Institute of Art and Literature in Guangzhou, Central South Institute of Art and Literature in Wuhan, and the Guangxi Institute of Art. The merger, which was initiated in 1953, moved to Guangzhou in 1958 and was renamed as Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts. Outside the Ivory Tower, presented by Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts aims to look at the contemporary design in China and particularly in Guangdong Province, the first region in China to experience the economy reform in the 80s.
