Until June 16, Gallery 55

A'A'A'JIAO takes internet typeset as the starting point in this solo exhibition, which is part of the How Now series of exhibitions by young artists. By presenting life on the internet as the starting point in this exhibition, the artist argues about our independence and freedom in the modern age, as computers and technology continue to change the way our minds work and the way our ability to change things in our lives is restricted as a result of continued and seemingly constrictive technological development. 

Until July 14, How Art Museum

Opening this weekend, Shanghai Center of Photography in Xuhui present works by four very talented photographers and a guest curator, who seek to understand how love and romance has transformed in China over the preceding decades. The varying narratives of love here explored take in the material aspects of China’s wedding industry, discreet expressions of love in a bygone era, as well as a focused project by photographer Coco Dai, whose work explores one particular female subject to present the realities of contemporary womanhood. 

Until Aug 19; RMB30 students, RMB40 door. Shanghai Center of Photography

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.
