There is a wonderful exhibit now showing through July 25th at the Rockbund Art Museum which is a new gallery located in the building of the first museum in Shanghai.
Artist Cai Guo Qiang presents, Peasant Da Vincis, a collection of pieces from that of the artist and chinese peasants and farmers from around China. One of my favorite sections was the interactive robot inventions created to “perform” tasks offering the viewer a glimpse of the hard work, pain, humor, urbanization and much much more of the modern Chinese life.
Another well done exhibition going on is at the Minsheng Art Museum at Red Town featuring contemporary artworks from the last 30 years in China, this exhibition will be showing until July 18th. Red Town is a great place to spend the afternoon viewing art, having a bite to eat and lounging in the beautiful sculpture garden.
