That's Shanghai takes a look at the best art exhibitions of the week:

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. The exhibition changes over at the end of this week, so you have until Sunday to go see this show.

Until Oct 28, Bank Gallery.

GUCCI x Maurizio Cattelan: The Artist is Present

Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan has partnered with Gucci’s Creative Director, Alessandro Michele, to bring a surreal collection of curated works to the Yuz Musem. Exploring how originality can be acheived through acts of repetition, the exhibition inspired by Marina Abromovic's 2010 live performance (as featured in the Jay Z music video for 'Picasso Baby' which, fun fact, revolves around a relatively interesting controversy that you should definitely look up) is runnning through to December.

Until Dec 16, RMB60, Yuz Museum.

Bodega Run

While you're at the Yuz, check out Tshcabalala Self's solo exhibition at their Project Space of Art, highlighting the Bodegas of New York City through paintings, sculptures and video. The family run corner stores featured in Self's show capture an aspect of the Black-American and Latinx community that has yet to be shown in a Chinese instution.

Until Dec 9, Yuz Museum

Metaphysics | Objects

Collage, fragmentation and cognitive frameworks are central to Yi Nan's work, and ATA Space is putting on a solo exhibition of the artist opening this weekend. These mixed medium pieces offer alternative perspectives on conflicting art historical narratives, creating entirely new images from preexisting ones.

Until Nov 24, ATA Space.

Mika Shimauchi Exhibition

The opening of this exhibit showcases works that are impressive, crude, dark and comical. They catalogue the artist's grappling with existential dread in a range of mediums that are worth a gander.

Until Nov 11, Shun Art Gallery, see event listing.

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.
