Description Since its establishment in 1996, ShanghART gallery has fostered and embraced radicalism and diversity in Shanghai art. Located initially in a downtown hotel and thereafter in an old workshop in Fuxing Park, the gallery quickly became an international reference point for contemporary Chinese art. Today it is regarded as one of the country's most acclaimed and innovative cultural spaces, with notes of appreciation from some of the most prominent figures of the western art world, including Hans-Ulrich Obrist and Arthur Danto. This publication is structured as a virtual exhibition, documenting key works by represented artists including Wang Guangyi, Xu Zhen, Yang Fudong and 28 others, as well as the gallery's own development. Essays relate the history of the emergent Chinese art scene and detail the radical sociopolitical and cultural changes of the past decade.
