Walk­ing On The Fade Out Lines

Global Times – Metro Shanghai - - CLASSIFIEDS -

Walk­ing On The Fade Out Lines, this ex­hi­bi­tion tack­les the an­gles that peo­ple “see” things and en­cour­ages us to ex­plore the un­known. It in­vites au­di­ences to re­visit his­tory and in­spires them to re-dis­cover how artists have been ask­ing, an­a­lyz­ing and tack­ling trans-re­gion dif­fi­cul­ties brought by the times since the end of 20th cen­tury in a global con­text. Via a po­etic elab­o­ra­tion, it at­tempts to trans­form the cog­ni­tive struc­ture and of­fer new per­spec­tives which are more open and di­verse. “‘Walk­ing On The Fade Out Lines’ whis­pers, lis­tens, con­nects with the Other, and yet there is no need to see for­eign­ers as the Other or to travel such dis­tances to meet with and speak on be­half of an ex­otic Other. Rad­i­cal ‘al­ter­ity’ has first to be found and cul­ti­vated in our in­ner-self and so­cial in­ter­ac­tion with all kinds of beauty, ug­li­ness, tyranny and har­mony. There is al­ways a for­eign land from where we stand,” Larys Fro­gier, di­rec­tor of Rock­bund Art Museum (RAM) and one of the cu­ra­tors said. This ex­hi­bi­tion is a col­lab­o­ra­tion and ex­change be­tween Shang­hai-based RAM and Fon­dazione San­dretto Re Re­bau­dengo, one of the most renowned con­tem­po­rary art in­sti­tu­tions in Italy. It will present 29 works by more than 23 artists from all over the world, cov­er­ing var­i­ous art forms in­clud­ing paint­ings, in­ter­ac­tive in­stal­la­tions, pho­tog­ra­phy and video. All the works are from a col­lec­tion by San­dretto Re Re­bau­dengo. Ad­di­tion­ally, works by Song Tao and Zhang Ruyi, two Shang­hai-based artists, con­sol­i­date and en­rich the links be­tween the ex­hi­bi­tion and the lo­cal con­text. A se­ries of pub­lic ed­u­ca­tion events will be held dur­ing the ex­hi­bi­tion.
