Where to go, what to do today in Shanghai.
Proposal to Surrender @ Ming Contemporary Art Museum
McaM is built upon the notion of performativity in art, which is the only institution in China that actively supports live works. This exhibit explores the nature of such practices and their relation to the exhibition format – a temporal reality that provides an important physical encounter between individuals and artworks being created in real time. Participating artists include Annie Vigier & Franck Apertet (les gens d’Uterpan), Isabel Lewis, Eva Kot’átková, Stuart Ringholt and more.
🕒 10am – 6pm (closed Mondays), until Feb 12 2017
