A group ex­hi­bi­tion: Hon – Niki de Saint Phalle & Shen Yuan

Global Times – Metro Shanghai - - CLASSIFIEDS -

This sum­mer, the ex­hi­bi­tion “Hon – Niki de Saint Phalle & Shen Yuan” will present vis­i­tors with the clas­sic works of two artists. The ex­hi­bi­tion first pays re­spect to Niki de Saint Phalle’s Hon, a mile­stone work cre­ated in 1966, which is one of the ear­li­est large vol­ume works in con­tem­po­rary fe­male artis­tic cre­ation his­tory. “Hon” means “her” in Swedish. The ex­hi­bi­tion at­tempts to demon­strate the cre­ation in­spi­ra­tions and tacit agree­ment of the two fe­male artists in dif­fer­ent spe­cial and tem­po­ral con­texts. The two artists are to­tally dis­parate in cul­tural back­ground, lan­guage and cre­ative ex­pres­sion and they never met. Nev­er­the­less, they share many sim­i­lar­i­ties such as po­et­ic­ity and hu­mor and their works both re­flect the di­ver­sity and com­plex­ity. Date: July 28, 2018 to Oc­to­ber 14, 2018, Tues­day to Sun­day, 11 am to 7 pm Venue: Power Sta­tion of Art Ad­dress: 200 Huayuan­gang Road, Huangpu Dis­trict Ad­mis­sion: Free Call 3110-8550 for more de­tails
