M+ is re-stag­ing a part of Chi­nese cu­ra­tor Hou Hanru’s sem­i­nal ex­hi­bi­tion, “Zone of Ur­gency”. First staged at the 50th Venice Bi­en­nale in 2003, Zone sought to link con­tem­po­rary art prac­tices in the Pearl River Delta with ev­ery­day life. The new M+ ex­hi­bi­tion, en­ti­tled “Canton Ex­press: Art of the Pearl River Delta (Canton Ex­press)”, runs un­til Septem­ber 10 and fea­tures a range of medi­ums, in­clud­ing sculp­ture, in­stal­la­tion, video, photography and archival ma­te­ri­als. All 37 works were do­nated by Guan Yi, a Chi­nese col­lec­tor noted for his col­lec­tion of ’85 new wave, con­cep­tual art and large-scale in­stal­la­tions.
