Bank is simultaneously running three solo shows from Sun Yitian, Kim Laughton and Wang Rui. These consumerist works range from 3D animation to an "immersive imagery feast" examining the fragile psychological boundries between the virtual and the real.
Sep 15 - Oct 28, Bank Gallery.
Other Voices Other Spaces

Closing in two weeks is the group show from Liang Manqi, Li Qing, Shi Zhiying, Wang Yi and Yuan Keru. The exhibit engages with philosopher Michel Foucault's idea of 'heterotopia', used to describe places and spaces that function in non-dominant positions (roughly speaking). Many of the works are geometric, highlighting the relationships between shapes, colors and positive/negative space.
Until Sep 30, Shanghai Gallery of Art.
Lose Your Mind: David Shrigley

Sitting at the intersection of art, design and pop culture, Shrigley's solo show combines satire, black humor and an impeccable use of puns in a refreshing contemporary exhibition. It's comprised of over 400 illustrations and a collection of installations, giving you more than enough of a reason to head to the power station of Design - a creative extension of the Power Station of Art. And it's free!
Until Nov 14, power station of Design.
Story of Skin: Haruna SATO

Sato's show reflects the relationship between body temperature and emotion. Between color pallettes, contact and form, this intimate set of works is the artist's first solo show in Shanghai.
Until Oct 7, Shun Art Gallery.
Construction of Reality: Leandro Elrich

Argentine artist Leandro Herlich invites us to question our perception of reality and the world around us in his major solo exhibition at How Art Museum. This exhibition combines photography, video, interactive installations as well as optical illusions to disrupt the orientation and perception of viewers.
Until October 15, How Art Museum.
Carte Blanche - Continuous Terminus

Continuous Terminus is a group show featuring a lot of video pieces and stuff made on computers. These futuresque digital works by Hsiung Cheng Kai and Mao Haonan are a combination of dark and optimistic, programmatic feats, a captivating addition to M50.
Until Oct 7, ShanghART Main Space.
