Ladyfest Shang­hai 2017

Ladyfest Shang­hai is a grass­roots, non­profit or­ga­ni­za­tion for­mu­lated by a group of women with the mis­sion to cel­e­brate fe­male em­pow­er­ment and pro­mote a di­a­logue for gen­der equal­ity through host­ing an an­nual event held close to In­ter­na­tional Women’s Day. The an­nual event calls upon the lo­cal com­mu­nity to join in sup­port­ing free­dom of self-ex­pres­sion through a wide di­ver­sity of skills and to cre­ate an open en­vi­ron­ment which fos­ters mu­tual in­spi­ra­tion, ex­change of ex­pe­ri­ences and vi­sions of fem­i­nin­ity and equal­ity. Re­gard­less of gen­der, shape, size, color, cul­tural back­ground, re­li­gious be­liefs, po­lit­i­cal stance or cup size, ev­ery­one is en­cour­aged to be a part of the ef­fort rec­og­nized of equal­ity. Af­ter three out­stand­ing years, Ladyfest Shang­hai re­turns, bring­ing you an all-day event filled with new and en­gag­ing art in­stal­la­tions, per­for­mances and work­shops. Date: March 11, 12 pm to 12 am Venue: Suzhou Creek Ware­house Ad­dress: 1295 Nan­suzhou Road ହෑᇣ੥1295ރ If you have any ques­tions, please e-mail ladyfest.shang­hai@out­look. com Shang­hai 2002 The women of China are of­ten pic­tured with an out­dated, stereo­typ­i­cal im­age of sub­mis­sive and sub­ju­gated ladies, qui­etly wait­ing at the beck and call of men. Through­out China, the women of Shang­hai are renowned for be­ing beau­ti­ful and del­i­cate crea­tures. But at home they are known as “tricky wives” who make their hus­bands do as they say. At the of­fice, they are re­lent­less pro­fes­sion­als who dis­play equal, if not more, com­pet­i­tive­ness than men. These women like­wise take the lead all over China in fash­ion, dis­play­ing such deco­rous and au­da­cious tastes to keep the coun­try watch­ing. In a tour de force through this an­cient city and fa­bled cul­ture, Bet­tina Rheims and Serge Bramly beautifully stage pho­to­graphs of real women from all walks of life. En­gaged in an ar­dent search for the spirit of Shang­hai’s women, Rheims and Bramly in­stead found a place so fast-paced, so quickly evolv­ing, that their quest was ren­dered moot. Date: From March 3 to 25, 10 am to 7 pm Venue: Shang­hai Gallery of Art@ Three on the Bund Ad­dress: 3rd Floor, 3 Zhong­shan­dongyi Roadᇖ೽ױ၉੥೟ރ Ad­mis­sion: Free Call 6321-5757 for more in­for­ma­tion Bor­ders: Us and Them 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.

Over the past three decades, Bigerts & Bergström have be­come an out­stand­ing rep­re­sen­ta­tive of Swedish earth art and en­vi­ron­men­tal art for their con­sis­tent fo­cus on weather-re­lated art projects. They ap­proach the cli­mate is­sue through sci­en­tific re­searches, his­tor­i­cal facts and geo-en­gi­neer­ing ex­per­i­ments ex­pressed through their aes­thetic imag­i­na­tions.
