Shanghai Bennale 2022
Publisher : Shanghai Art Museum
With globalization as the backdrop, the 2002 Shanghai Bienniale focuses on problems of city culture, architecture and issues of urbanization. It is also an attempt to integrate visual art and architecture by showcasing paintings, models, sculptures, photographs, texts, sketches, video and interactive media that examine urban condition in a global context. As noted by Fang Zengxian, Executive Director of the Organizing Committee of Shanghai Biennale 2002, 'Our starting point and also our ultimate wish is to encourage audience to pay attention to art as a way to care about present life and living reality, and to meditate upon current city construction more deeply.'
