Journal [Ethnic Education Research]

Journal [Chinese Ethnic Art]


The vast and colorful array of Chinese ethnic art is a human treasure and an important part of world culture. As China's first art publication focusing on ethnic art, "Chinese Ethnic Art" was approved by the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film, and Television in 2014 and was officially launched in 2015. This not only fills a gap involving the publishing of national art journals in China, but it also provides a good academic and exhibition platform for instructors and students of ethnic minority-focused colleges/universities as well as ethnic art researchers. "Chinese Ethnic Art" is a professional art periodical organized by the State Ethnic Affairs Commission, sponsored by the Minzu University Press, and created and undertaken by the MUC School of Fine Arts.

The journal aims at accumulating and inheriting elements of Chinese ethnic art. It is based on the characteristics and advantages of ethnic art. It integrates mining, sorting, education, and research, as well as other kinds of development. It emphasizes three-dimensional research perspectives, open academic space, and an academic atmosphere characterized by the Chinese proverb "a hundred flowers bloom, a hundred schools of thought contend." It strives to sort out the unique value system found in different kinds of Chinese ethnic art while also deepening related theoretical research, updating related educational concepts, and promoting a vital role for ethnic art to contribute to contemporary Chinese cultural development.


The journal has five content sections, namely "Original Ecology and Ethnic Cultural and Creative Industries," "Ethnic Artists," "Viewpoints and Controversies," "Ethnic Art Education," and "Ethnic Museums." The topic selections involve painting, photography, architecture, sculpture, design, art education, arts and crafts, and other disciplines and fields such as ethnology, art, sociology, and anthropology. Based on adhering to ethnic characteristics, the journal attaches importance to the combination of theory and practice, the combination of research and education, and the combination of inheritance and innovation. The journal is committed to the inheritance and protection of ethnic minority traditional culture and the contemporary practice and theoretical exploration of ethnic art. The journal strives to establish a more comprehensive academic exchange platform for minority art researchers, research institutions, and ethnic art colleges to promote the prosperity and development of ethnic art as well as more generally speaking contemporary Chinese art.


The inaugural issue of the journal "Chinese Ethnic Art" is of great significance for integrating art resources in ethnic areas, promoting cultural construction in ethnic areas, deepening the study of ethnic art theories, and establishing the academic foundation of ethnic art production.
