Where to go, what to do today in Shanghai. Read on for Shanghaiist’s picks.
SHE: International Women Artists Exhibition @ Long Museum
Spanning a range of media and ten centuries of art history, She features works by 105 women artists from China and abroad. The first of the exhibition’s four chapters is called ‘self-annihilation’ and features very early, oftentimes anonymous artworks. ‘Self-liberation’ tracks women’s inroads into society, education and revolution following a process of emancipation beginning in the early 20th century in the west, as well as the founding of the PRC in 1949. ‘Self-introspection’ tracks women artists as they began to explore their own mode of expression from personal experience; while the ‘Expression of Self’ looks to feminism, gender and individualism. Artists include Louise Borgeouis, Yayoi Kusama, Jenny Saville, Hong Yu and Cao Fei.

WHEN: July 23 til October 30
