ART EXHIBITIONS
  • Beijing-based Slovenian photographer Matjaž Tančič will present his recent work on North Korea, entitled 3DPRK, at Glam and will fundraise for his upcoming project, “Hḗrōs". Hḗrōs is a portrait project focused on the refugee crisis in the Mediterranean and will be carried out on the Greek island of Samos, one of the main European gateways for Syrian, Middle Eastern and African refugees and migrants. This event is part of the international ArtsUp series titled "Art Breaking Barriers". Price: 75rmb, includes a drink or tea/coffee. Starts 4pm.
  • Surreal videos, sculptures, rugs, and paintings by the enfant terrible of Chinese contemporary art Tianzhuo Chen are on display at K11 this summer as part of an ongoing collaboration with Palais de Tokyo in Paris. Very trippy. Known for his vibrant brights, surreal landscapes, and themes spanning everything from sex to religion to hip-hop, here that includes operatic performance Trayastrima, starring characters as grotesque as they are familiar. Think weird acrobats, androgynous characters, five-eyed blondes and gangster rappers. As well as documentation of the performance, the Shanghai show also features the work's distinctive stage design, incorporating a water fountain, a neon flame and two polyfoam sculptures. The live performance at the opening saw a dude strip naked and urinate on the stage at K11. Recommended. More about the artist and the work in our interview.
  • Art + Gallery hosts an exhibition of works by Chongqing-based Zhang Zhenxue and Zhuang Hong Yi of Beijing/Rotterdam this summer. Celebrating a resurgence of crafting and materially-focused work in contemporary art, the exhibition features Zhuang Hong Yi’s flower petal 'collages' on rice paper, inspired by aerial views of the Netherlands' famed flower fields. Zhang Zhenxue, meanwhile, works in thick layers of oil paint and occasionally glass fragments. His works draw on 1950s cinema, and in particular the idea of décor and its function in scenes - think atmospheric chandeliers, staircases and furniture.
  • The ever excellent Chronus Art Center hosts Austrian artist Thomas Feuerstein's first China solo. Called Psychoprosa, it comprises 19 artworks that come together to transform the gallery space into a kind of alchemist’s workshop-meets-modern laboratory. Merrily blurring borders between art and science, an overriding theme here is a future society shaped by biotechnological possibilities. Featuring all manner of test tubes, lab equipment and fridges connected through a system of flexible tubes transporting unidentifiable liquids and slimes, the immersive installation is apparently peopled by 'invisible' laboratory assistants, opening and closing refrigerators and overseeing experiments.
  • Frequency Modulation is the second solo by Yan Heng at Korean mainstay Arario Gallery, and deals in encoded stories and emotions through figurative painting. The artist is interested in societal change, development of scientific technology and its possibilities for humanity. In a timeless style that is evocative of much older works, his depictions of cutting-edge technology are closely aligned with human subjects, effectively blurring nostalgia with uncertainty for the future. The opening for that one takes place Friday, May 13 at 5pm.
  • Works by Chinese Australian artist John Young go on show at Bund-side spot Pearl Lam Galleries this summer. Featuring three series -- the exhibition's eponymous Storm Resurrection, Naïve and Sentimental Paintings and Veil -- works incorporate Young's so-called "human-computer friendship" method. That sees him either randomly source pictures online, or else create digital abstractions of other artists' work before faithfully recreating the tech-facilitated images onto canvas in traditional oil paint. Influenced by both Modernism and Color Field artists, Young has exhibited extensively and internationally since the late 1970s.
  • Taking its name from the eponymous Photoshop tool, Content Aware marks Miao Ying's first solo at MadeIn. The artist takes the software's function as a jumping-off point for an exploration of a visual culture in which images are hastily produced, with scant regard for traditional ideas of taste or quality. They are created to serve some immediate, temporary purpose. The show taps into current interest in 'postinternet' art -- works concerned with the cultural and societal effects of internet saturation. On the flip side, this saturation has also launched a new level of amateurism, presented here where it demands to be understood as a set of new and evolving aesthetic conventions -- rather than a lack of them. Alongside dummy features of existing software, Miao also looks at the simplification of image making brought about social media - or “Practical/Half-Assed Aesthetics.” Grandly opens Saturday, June 4 at 4pm.
  • Once again, Art Labor Gallery presents a new series of ink paintings by talented -- and apparently very popular -- Ying Yefu (aka Shen Zhe Ming Yi). Markedly removed from his previous, very ornate works, these recent pieces use a limited color range and bold ink to express ideas around the double-edged sword of knowledge, the monotony of excess, hope and despair. The opening takes place Saturday, May 14 from 6pm-9pm.
  • Feng Fangyu's Confusion explores concepts of time, loss and memory, with the exhibition's title series focusing on 12 bronze Chinese zodiac heads, once part of an elaborate water clock, looted by French and British forces from Beijing's Old Summer Palace in 1860. In the photographs, a solitary, ragged figure stands surrounded by the marble ruins of the former palace, the bronze statues conspicuous in their absence. The opening for that one takes place Saturday, 7 May, 4pm-6pm.

  • Zhou Xiaohu takes center stage at Minsheng Art Museum's summer solo, Chimera. Renowned for pioneering animation art in China, Zhou has also made important works in video, photography, installation, and performance, often probing deep into the socio-political psyche of contemporary China -- something he describes as "Social Installation". Here, he mixes up Chinese philosophy and folk art with creative narrative and contemporary form to created a 'scene' spanning the entirety of the museum's main exhibition hall. With the help of four life-size puppets, he offers an interpretation in performance, video and story-telling of the Zhuangzi allegories, a famous collection of philosophical stories from the 4th century BCE.
  • Held in collaboration with Beijing's CIPA Gallery, Gansu-born Wang Yishu's Open Ending explores possibilities - be it of identity, circumstances, transformation or conclusion. Deliberately ambiguous, his photographs appear timeless, of no fixed location, and disconcertingly incomplete.
  • Hubei-born, Beijing-based artist Chen Xiaoyun is the focus of ShanghART's summertime solo, 106 Flashes of Lightning that I Collect. Comprising new sculptures, installations and videos all created in 2016, the exhibition is an analysis of lightning as something nominal but not material, material but not distinguishable, and distinguishable but not meaningful. The opening for that one takes place Saturday, May 21 from 3-6pm.
  • Now&Them is a non-profit platform that promotes the importance of creativity in society. Their next event Chinese Whispers features collaborations between visual artists and writers, revolving around the theme of storytelling. Curated by Paper Stone Scissors, this collaborative exhibition promotes creative thinking across different industries, professions and disciplines. They feature a curated mix of people across all industries including a playwright, architect, rock musician, children’s book author, art collector, barista... and even a comic book superhero. All proceeds from Chinese Whispers will go towards the Library Project and Heart to Heart.
  • Longstanding Shanghai gallery Aike Dellarco moves into its shiny new West Bund spot this summer, kicking things off with inaugural exhibition Same Old Crowd by Li Ran. On display will be four new pieces, each conveying elements of the artist’s recent trip to Singapore. Through stills and moving images, sound and motion, actual and abstract recollections from his travels, Li attempts to channel the perspective of a wanderer by impersonating the role of a tourist. A four-channel video installation and the show's title work weaves multiple angles of observation, while Picnic in the Stadium takes the form of a short novel. For a sneak peek, head to the opening on Saturday, May 28 at 5 pm.
  • K11 Art Foundation is teaming up with London's ICA to present the second installment of Zhang Ding’s ongoing project, Enter the Dragon. A followup to its 2015 UK debut, the work is inspired by Bruce Lee's seminal 1973 movie of the same name. With that in mind, Zhang Ding has transformed parts of K11's chi art space into a site-specific ‘mutating sound sculpture’, complete with mirrored surfaces and directional speakers to create an immersive environment. Weekly performances by musicians spanning a range of genres and selected by the artist take place inside the installation Saturday evenings throughout the show's duration. The schedule for that can be found here.
  • Taking place as part of the 11th Croisements Festival -- that annual lineup of Franco-Chinese artistic collaborations, this year taking place across 30 cities across China - is film exhibition, Welcome to My Life. The show comprises highlights from the extensive collection of Isabelle and Jean-Conrad Lemaître. The Parisian pair began turning their attention to video in the mid-90s, and now rank among the medium's top collectors globally. Cue an impressive roster of moving image works, including offerings from the likes of Moroccan artist Yto Barrada, Mumbai-based Nikhil Chopra, Tacita Dean, Mark Wallinger and Yang Fudong. Recommended.

  • Curated by media art hotshot Jeffrey Shaw, the Animamix Biennale at MoCA explores the space between the virtual world and reality, as shaped by animation and comics. A total of 13 international artists whose practice spans everything from animation, painting, sculpture and installation have created site-specific works for the summertime show. Up on the second floor, expect special screenings of cutting-edge animated shorts from around the world, including China, France, Poland, Germany and Japan. Up on the third floor, artist Trevor Lai has created a children’s animation playground called Park BOOMi. Sounds fun. Participating artists include Geng Xue (China), Park Junghyun (South Korea) and recent MoCA Pavilion exhibitors, Pussykrew (Poland).
  • Group show The Shadow Never Lies features works by 34 international artists spanning photography, video, film, animation, painting, installation and performance. Taking the Chinese word yingxiang - or ‘shadow image’ - as its starting point, works on display explore the the fragile relationship between what we perceive as imaginary, and what as real. Featured artists include Simryn Gill, Hu Jieming, Jiang Pengyi, Miao Xiaochun and Qiu Zhijie and Shahzia Sikander.
  • Rockbund Art Museum's group exhibition, Tell Me a Story: Locality and Narrative sees artists from across Asia share stories from distinct regional cultures. Through the exploration of personal ties between artist and environment, each work reveals a side of Asia often left unseen and unheard. With that in mind, Apichatpong Weerasethakul's video installation Fireworks takes viewers on a surreal night-journey through a temple on the border of Northern Thailand. Lit by flashes of light, the work is suggestive of the fires of war and 1970s bombing by US military. Elsewhere, Japanese photographer Tomoko Yoneda captures the past and present of long deserted Sakhalin Island. Recommended.

    An exhibition of works by a young Shanghai-born artist whose work blurs lines between fiction, reality and imagination.
