Chen Zhen: Without going to New York and Paris, life could be internationalized

Finished Ended on Wed Oct 7, 2015

Go see this show before it ends! It's one of the year's best, and might bring you to tears. This posthumous solo exhibition by the late Shanghai-born conceptual artist Chen Zhen features large-scale installations, as well as sketches and notes about the rapid changes happening in Shanghai in the '90s. Created at a time when he was increasingly aware of his own health, some works reference the human condition, all incorporating materials as diverse as alabaster and crystal; chamber pots and coins; and digital media. Sometimes we can see our homeland clearer from abroad.
