@ Shanghai MoCA
Everyone revels in their own way. The Tang Dynasty poet Li Bai reveled in drunken binges that enhanced his sense of artistic purpose and helped produce the lyrics that have delighted generations since. The counter-culture movement of the 1960s in America and Europe reveled in sex, drugs and rock and roll as a way to challenge the Vietnam war and what they saw as a defunct political establishment. Children tend to revel in everything outside of chores and schoolwork. At one point or other we have all reveled in our own misery. Today we have seized the occasion of Shanghai MoCA's auspicious 8th year anniversary to revel in this great city's burgeoning visual cultural scene.
Shanghai's contribution to global contemporary visual arts is unequaled, and in the next years, with the advent and expansion of new art venues, poised to fortify even further. MoCA, the original bastion of contemporary art in Shanghai, has been a staunch supporter of international arts and design as well as the local art scene for a steady eight years. This exhibition gathers together some of the most revered, international art stars, as well as promising younger talent from Shanghai and beyond as a way to revel in the spirit of this great city's contemporary art. Like Shanghai itself, this exhibition is divided into quarters. The quarters act as a way to assess the mutual inspiration, shared influences and diverse approaches to revelry that the great creative incubator of Shanghai harbors.
We invite you to Revel along with us!
