Grosse is known for her use of the spray gun as her primary painting tool to create on-site paintings. She uses strongly colored swaths of paint across the walls of her exhibition rooms, public billboards, entire houses and any natural surroundings such as soil and tree trunks. Using a spray gun, she is able to liberate the application of paint from its immediate connection to both the painter’s body and any predetermined surface. Grosse traverses established borders of objects and architectural settings to create a dissensual order of reality. Ultimately, Grosse’s paintings not only rework divisions that cut across the visible world of shapes, but also the fundamental division between the visible and the invisible. Disregarding established functions, attributions and hierarchies, Mumbling Mud offers Shanghai audiences new interpretations of art.

It takes place in Rong Zhai, a 1918 historical residence in Shanghai restored by Prada and reopened in October 2017. The exhibition will show the works of Liu, who was born in Beijing in 1964, through a selection of 30 paintings realized from 1992 onwards. Liu expresses an intimate and sensual imagination that feeds on heterogeneous sources related to literature, history of art and popular culture from the Western and Eastern hemisphere, giving rise to atmospheres which evoke introspection, purity and suspension. In the artist’s oeuvre, the stylistic features of fairy-tales coexist with the sense of humor and a parody. Referring to his own artistic production, Liu underlined that “every work is my self-portrait”. Rong Zhai’s two main floors will punctuate the exhibition, revealing unexpected resonances between Liu’s paintings, and their relation to the architectural and decorative elements. Visitors will be invited to freely move around the different spaces in order to create a palimpsest of images, memories and new stories told by the artist. Date: November 10 to January 20, 2019, Tuesday to Thursday, Sunday, 10 am to 5 pm; Friday to Saturday, 10 am to 8 pm Now & Beyond: Hu Xiangcheng Solo Exhibition, consists of 12 large-sized installation works. Hu Xiangcheng, the artist, uses different items including waste products, scaffolding, plastics, metal and LED lights to create artistic installations and integrate them into specific space structures of the museum, aiming to inspire people through shocking visuals to think about the prospects of humans and the world. Hu is an internationally famous artist and a native Shanghainese born in 1950. The exhibition is an important public welfare project of the Shanghai Himalayas Museum. As the development of science and technology accelerates, humans have become more and more powerful. The natural environment has been dramatically changed by human life, which causes serious and even urgent problems. If these problems are not correctly perceived and solved, the change of nature will affect all mankind in the near future.

Like any other cultural phenomenon, American art has taken shape over time. Pathways to Modernism: American Art, 1865–1945 aims to offer viewers a rich prelude to the American art of the post-war period through 80 paintings and prints created between 1865 and 1945, a crucial time in the history of the United States. Over the course of these 80 years, the United States evolved from an agrarian society into an industrial nation. The Civil War irrevocably changed the social fabric of the 50 states and ushered in new technologies and a growth of industry. The wealth generated by increased industrial production laid the groundwork for the flowering of the arts. American artists developed innovative styles under the influences of multiple artistic movements. New modes of transportation, communication and entertainment offered artists new experiences and subjects. In the first half of the 20th century, American art grew in sophistication, such that by the end of World War II, it was poised to take its place at the center of the art world. All the works in this exhibition were selected from the Art Institute of Chicago and the Terra Foundation for American Art from the US. This ad is based on a story on the website of Shanghai Museum.
