That's Shanghai takes a look at the best art exhibits on this weekend:

This exhibition offers art lovers an extraordinary opportunity to be close to one of the greatest painters’ works in a modern, immersive way. Based on its original content and utilizing a host of different technologies, the exhibition combines some of the latest techniques such as 3D mapping, intelligent interactive devices and installation art to create an immersive art exhibition experience. This exhibition has set up a special zone with cooperative copies authorized by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and also includes a cooperation with a top international shadow design team to create a 5D shadow exhibition for its audiences. It also includes a small Monet exhibition for children.

Until Jun 30, Jing’an Sculpture Park. Tickets

In My Room: Group Exhibition

Six artists combine here across a wide range of medium, including video, painting, installation and sculpture to challenge our ideas of the self and our physical extensions. The title of the exhibition is taken from the title of a 1996 novel by French writer Guillame Dustan, in which the book’s hero finds himself investigating the value of his relationship with things and other people in Paris. Taking the idea of one’s personal space – a room – as the starting point, we are thus taken on an existential voyage through our thoughts on desire, comfort and value. 

Until Jul 7, Antenna Space. 

Incarantion: Asami Kiyokawa

Japanese artist Asami Kiyokawa creates works that combine paint, canvas and embroidery thread and which have garnered her a large following in her home country. Grab your chance to get up close and personal with her works at Arario Gallery, and to admire the minute detail that she has woven into sensational depictions of the physical form of her plant-adorning subjects. 

Until Jul 14, Arario Gallery.

Sometimes You Wonder, In An Interconnected Universe, Who Is Dreaming Who?: Adrian Villar Rojas

More existentialism for your weekend. Head over to Tank No. 3 at the sprawling new art complex in Xuhui, TANK Shanghai, to catch Argentinean artist Adrian Villar Rojas’ solo exhibition, conceived especially for the space. Rojas is known for creating sculptures which force viewers to think about the end of the world and the end of human life. This exhibition makes use of rugged rockforms, reminiscent of ancient ruins, as well as vivid paintings, to transport visitors. 

Until Aug 24, TANK Shanghai.

Wall Drawings: Sol LeWitt

Closing this weekend, this exhibition by one of the foremost American conceptual and minimal artists, collecting some of his seminal works, is one not to be missed. LeWitt's wall drawings were originally conceived in the 1980s, and are painted directly onto the building's surface, making them replicable and raising questions about ownership, authenticity and multiplicity. This is the first exhibition of this type or work in China, so head down to the Bund to see how they've transformed the space.

Until May 25, Perrotin Gallery.

If You Don't Use Your Eyes To See You Will Use Them To Cry: Tobias Rehberger

Your last chance to see the first solo show for the German artist this weekend. This multi-dimensional creation extends the possibilities of sculpture to design, architecture, conceptual art and much more. The exhibition will feature a number of new commissioned works and large-scale field installations tailored by the artist for RAM. By creating a dazzling array of objects and environments, Rebec continues to explore new forms of production technology and social intervention, tapping into how we interact with space and perceive the connection between everyday life and art. 

Until May 26, Rockbund Art Museum.
