China has some crazy stories (many which we cover frequently)… but if you’ve ever wanted to see what you read on the internet or through newspapers in photo form – then this event is for you. The Victims, a special exhibition at source organized by Shanghai’s newest expat mag Time Out, shows off the work of two Wuhan-based photographers. Liu Bo and Li Yu combined their talents to create visual interpretations of local news stories with hilarious results.
Their tongue-in-cheek humor immediately comes through their work and you begin to wonder whether some of these news stories are fact or fiction. Why did the monk really cross the highway? If a good laugh isn’t inciting enough for you, the event is also FREE. Now that definitely puts a smile on anyone’s face.
7pm, April 16, source, 158 Xinle Lu, near Donghu Lu, Xuhui District (5404 3808)
The Victims runs from April 16 to May 9. The works of Liu Bo and Li Yu can also be seen on the album covers of dance punk band AV Okubo
