Bor­ders: Us and Them

Global Times – Metro Shanghai - - CLASSIFIEDS -

From March 7 to May 30, New York Univer­sity Shang­hai Art Gallery is proud to present Bor­ders: Us and Them, an ex­hi­bi­tion that probes the emer­gence and trans­for­ma­tion of con­tem­po­rary global bor­ders, and their so­cio-po­lit­i­cal im­pli­ca­tions. Tak­ing its ti­tle from an epony­mous song by English pro­gres­sive rock band, Pink Floyd, the ex­hi­bi­tion taps into the sep­a­ra­tions, dis­crim­i­na­tion, armed con­flicts and de­hu­man­iz­ing forces bred into ex­is­tence by bor­ders. The first ever group ex­hi­bi­tion at this gallery, Bor­ders: Us and Them ex­tends its field of vi­sion be­yond the con­fines of Shang­hai and China, draw­ing to­gether five in­ter­na­tional artists from three dif­fer­ent con­ti­nents – Ras­mus Deg­n­bol (Den­mark), John Craig Free­man (US), Lorenzo Pez­zani (Italy) & Charles Heller (Switzer­land), as well as Reena Saint Kal­lat (In­dia) – to ex­am­ine the ex­is­ten­tial con­di­tions of liv­ing be­tween bor­ders in a world in­creas­ingly marked by ris­ing na­tion­al­ism and pop­ulism, crum­bling demo­cratic val­ues, and sweep­ing back­lash against glob­al­iza­tion; and how artists, as crit­i­cal agents, can al­ter bor­dered re­al­ity through their prac­tice.
