Solo ex­hi­bi­tion

China Daily (Canada) - - LIFE -

Shang­hai-based artistHu Xiangcheng’s sec­ond solo ex­hi­bi­tion is on show at Shang­hai Gallery of Art. Hu started his artis­tic ca­reer in the 1980s, paint­ing real­is­tic pieces. A visit to Ti­bet prompted him to med­i­tate on the spir­i­tual world as op­posed to ma­te­rial ex­is­tence. His time in South Africa in­spired him to in­clude sym­bolic pat­terns and totem im­ages in his paint­ings. On ex­hi­bi­tion are about 50 paint­ings, as well as in­stal­la­tions and sculp­tures. A re­pro­duc­tion of his stu­dio is also pre­sented at the ex­hi­bi­tion hall. 11 am-7 pm, un­til April 16. Shang­hai Gallery of Art, 3F, 3 Zhong­shan E1 Lu (Road), Shang­hai. 021-6321-5757. A mu­si­cal adap­ta­tion of the film Papa, Can YouHearMe Sing is set to hit the stage. The play Glass Anatomy is be­ing pro­duced by Toy Fac­tory from Sin­ga­pore, fea­tur­ing hit songs that were pop­u­lar among the Chi­nese com­mu­nity all over the world. The mu­si­cal will tour the coun­try af­ter the Chi­nese pre­miere in Shang­hai. The film by Bak-MingWong was re­leased by Tai­wan in 1983, telling a story of a deaf vet­eran and his adopted daugh­ter. Be­sides the love story and fam­ily drama, the film’s suc­cess is largely thanks to the mu­sic com­po­si­tion by Shou-Chuan Lee. 7:15 pm, March 28-30. Shang­hai Cul­ture Square, 597 Fux­ing Lu (Road) Mid­dle, Shang­hai, 021-5461-9960.
