Love bang at DADA

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - SUNDAY EXPAT - - MATT HODGES

Any­one spend­ing Christ­mas in Shang­hai is spoiled for choice in terms of par­ties and restau­rants, but this event at DADA may ap­peal to those on a shoe­string bud­get who none­the­less want to en­joy some club­bing ac­tion on Dec 24. Drinks are cheap and en­trance is free for the event, with bud­ding lo­cal DJs Mau Mau and Heat­wolves re­unit­ing for the night to pump out their eclec­tic mix of house, hip-hop and drum-and-bass. DJ Sacco is also run­ning a Sexy Santa Party there the fol­low­ing day. 10 pm, Dec 24. Club DADA, 115 Xingfu Lu (Road), near Fahuazhen Lu (Road). 150-0018-2212. This on­go­ing show that runs un­til the end of the year should ap­peal to fans of Sal­vador Dali, An­dre Bre­ton and Rene Magritte. It fo­cuses on how two con­tem­po­rary pain­ters - Liu Ren and Nial O’Con­nor - de­pict mod­ern Asian cities de­spite com­ing from very dif­fer­ent back­grounds. Al­though the artists fol­low a tra­di­tion sim­i­lar to their Euro­pean pre­cur­sors, both op­er­ate in dif­fer­ent me­dia. Liu, who stud­ied dig­i­tal photography, uses su­per­im­posed im­ages to color the ci­tyscapes us­ing her imag­i­na­tion, while also draw­ing on mem­o­ries from her childhood. Un­til Dec 31. Art+Shang­hai Gallery, 370 Suzhou Beilu (North Road), near Sichuan Beilu, (North Road). 021-5608-6067.
