    Seoul-based artistic duo Shinseunback Kimyonghun present new work, Stone as the fourth and final part of recent exhibition series, Foreign Bodies. The premise of the experience-based piece is straightforward enough: what would it feel like to be a stone? Its execution, though, is founded in the collective's background in computer science and visual arts. On identifying a...

    This looks very promising indeed: American artist James Turrell has been working with the medium of light since the 1960s, picking up accolade after accolade, and even opening his own museum in Argentina. He's best known for ongoing work, Roden Crater - fashioned from an extinct volcano, it's a naked-eye observatory out in the Arizona dessert. Other pieces include enclosed apertures or...

    Cc Foundation's M50 exhibition space presents British conceptual artist Ryan Gander this spring. Comprising new and recent works, the show centers on contradiction, and the dichotomy between human and nonhuman, utility and futility, success and failure. To that end, expect mirrors with no reflection, inanimate figures that express emotion, and a site-specific installation made of ball bearings.

    The Art+ Shanghai Gallery exhibition “Paradox of Reality: Latest Works by Shen Hua” represents the critical pictorial conclusions to the artist’s recent reflections on realism and, as he puts it, its “inherent” and “insurmountable” limitations.
