Ex­hi­bi­tions

Global Times – Metro Shanghai - - CLASSIFIEDS -

Wel­come to Bird­head World Again Bird­head, set up in 2004, is an artist col­lec­tive made up of Song Tao and Ji Weiyu based in Shang­hai. Both were born in xin­cun, res­i­den­tial ar­eas erected in Shang­hai mostly from the 1950s to the 1980s. The two started their art ca­reers by pho­tograph­ing the dis­ap­pear­ing xin­cun dur­ing the city’s devel­op­ment. They em­pha­size the edit­ing process of their pho­tos by order­ing them care­fully in groups to con­struct new nar­ra­tives. Wel­come to Bird­head World Again is their 10th solo ex­hi­bi­tion, and sees their fo­cus broaden to scenes of daily life, both in and out­side of the city. The pair’s fas­ci­na­tion with tra­di­tional cul­ture is also re­vealed in the ex­hi­bi­tion, the space of which is split into three sec­tions like an an­cient Chi­nese yard.

Dur­ing the past few years, con­tem­po­rary so­ci­ety has en­tered a stage of mas­sive ac­cu­mu­la­tion of ob­jects. Phi­los­o­phy has long con­sid­ered ob­jects as a realm in­tri­cately con­nected with man. In con­junc­tion with the ex­hi­bi­tion, talks and lec­tures will be pre­sented. More­over, an in­ter­na­tional sym­po­sium will also be held dur­ing the show.

Dual Solo Ex­hi­bi­tions

Shang­hai Gallery of Art will host dual solo ex­hi­bi­tions by two Chi­nese fe­male artists Liu Yu­jia and Lai Jinna. Four video and photography works are fea­tured in Liu’s show ti­tled The Third Man, ex­am­in­ing ob­jects and the fields they be­long to. The artist man­ages to bring imag­i­na­tion, per­cep­tion and logic into play by re­sort­ing to the­atri­cal and movie lan­guage, prob­ing the in­ter­play among ob­jects, time and hu­man be­ings dur­ing the pro­gres­sion of an orig­i­nal story. Lai Jinna’s art­works in color pen­cils and ball­point made their de­but in a se­ries in 2010. Lai’s first solo ex­hi­bi­tion in Shang­hai, en­ti­tled Pre­sent­ing Na­ture, fea­tures her re­cent works and de­parts from her pre­vi­ous prac­tices. It can be seen as a re­view of the three stages of her jour­ney in the art world.

This new ex­hi­bi­tion ex­plores the fragility and dura­bil­ity of the hu­man body. The new­est se­ries of ex­clu­sive works on dis­play of­fer a snarky per­spec­tive on what it means to be alive in­side the glass house of hu­man mor­tal­ity. Vis­i­tors can look for­ward to an abun­dance of puls­ing diodes with orig­i­nal mu­sic from David Pop­pell spilling out of the col­lec­tive’s in­ti­mate Shang­hai Gar­den space at M50.

This solo ex­hi­bi­tion will fea­ture works from 2014 and 2015. It is per­vaded by a sense of con­tin­u­a­tion and ex­ten­sion of ab­strac­tion, and chal­lenges the au­di­ence’s means of ap­pre­ci­a­tion through a new lan­guage.

The Phil­har­mo­nia Orches­tra & Vladimir Ashke­nazy

Founded in 1945, the Phil­har­mo­nia Orches­tra is one of the world’s lead­ing orches­tras. Through­out its his­tory, the Orches­tra has col­lab­o­rated with most of the great clas­si­cal artists of the 20th cen­tury, in­clud­ing Furt­wan­gler, Richard Strauss, Toscanini, Kara­jan and Gi­ulini. Other great names have in­cluded Lorin Maazel, Ric­cardo Muti and Vladimir Ashke­nazy. This year sees the orches­tra cel­e­brate the 20th an­niver­sary of its res­i­den­cies at Lon­don’s South­bank Cen­tre and Bed­ford Corn Ex­change. This up­com­ing Shang­hai con­cert will be con­ducted by the orches­tra’s con­duc­tor lau­re­ate Vladimir Ashke­nazy, who led the orches­tra on a ma­jor tour of Latin Amer­ica in 2014. Ashke­nazy is also the con­duc­tor with the Ice­land Sym­phony and NHK Sym­phony orches­tras. From 2009 to 2013, Ashke­nazy was the prin­ci­pal con­duc­tor and artis­tic ad­viser to the Syd­ney Sym­phony Orches­tra, Magic Pi­ano & The Chopin Shorts The first fea­ture-length film from Break Thru Films to be shot in stereo­scopic 3-D, Magic Pi­ano tells the story of 10-year old Anna, whose Dad has left her in Poland with her aunt and cousin ChipChip, while he works in Lon­don. Anna, bit­terly miss­ing her fa­ther, de­cides to run away. See­ing her leave, Chip-Chip fol­lows her. To shake him off, she hides in a pile of rub­bish and stum­bles into an old pi­ano, which trans­forms into a mag­i­cal fly­ing ma­chine. Both Anna and Chip-Chip are whisked into the air on some­thing that seems to be a cross be­tween a pi­ano, an air ship, and a gi­ant sail­ing ship. En­dorsed by Lang Lang (who recorded the orig­i­nal sound­track made up of Chopin’s etudes), Magic Pi­ano is pre­sented in this new live for­mat along­side The Chopin Shorts, a col­lec­tion of short films, from award-win­ning an­i­ma­tors. With a gifted young pi­anist per­form­ing the Chopin etudes, this is a won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity for chil­dren of all ages to ex­pe­ri­ence Chopin’s mu­sic within a unique and col­or­ful set­ting in Shang­hai. Date: May 31, 2:30pm, 4:30pm, 7:30pm Venue: Shang­hai Ori­en­tal Art Cen­ter Ad­dress: 425 Dingx­i­ang Road 425 Tick­ets: 80 yuan to 480 yuan Call 6854-1234 for more de­tailed in­for­ma­tion
