Shanghai Project is a pan-city, multidisciplinary art and design festival organized by Himalayas Art Museum. At its helm is the organization's director, Yongwoo Lee, along with super curator, Hans Ulrich Obrist. Nothing if not ambitious, Project Shanghai spans various phases with the first focusing on architecture, design, and community-based projects. A highlight will be the Envision Pavilion, designed by Japanese starchitect Sou Fujimoto and housed outside the museum. Inside, a rotating exhibition of artworks will consider Shanghai life 100 years from now and include works by Nigerian artist Otobong Nkanga, as well as a video game devised by management consulting firm, McKinsey. A children's pavilion called Seed Planet pops up in Century Park, and there's also a library project in partnership with bookstore, Jinfeng. Various other museums are getting involved, including Power Station Art as part of their Biennale preparations. Phase II kicks off in April 2017, and for the full lowdown check the website. Depending on what you're looking to visit, various tickets are available. The Envision Pavilion only is 50rmb, and a full package affair will set you back 80rmb.
