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

Chong Lai: Zhang Yexing Solo Exhibition

Beijing-based contemporary artist Zhang Yexing here eschews his usual warm palatte in favor of colder and more impersonal tones of blue and green. His characteristic ‘empty views’ offer viewers the opportunity for deep meditation and reflection. In this exhibition, the dank, shadowy white, green and blue shower curtain hangs like a human body in the center of one painting, while elsewhere Zhang’s highly detailed self-portrait also makes for moments of careful thought. 

Until Jul 7; RMB20-30. Qiao Space

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. 

Decoding: Li Shan Solo Exhibition

Li Shan follows up on his exhibitions, The Pumpkin Project and Reading of Li Shan with this collection of works, which deal with the idea of genetic editing and, more specifically, the unfolding of the double helix structure of a genome in order to edit molecular information. Li represents the structure of a genome in nine different paintings, while also using video and photography to explore the all-to-present idea of genetic editing and adjustment. 

Until Jul 21, ShanghART Gallery

Channel Orange: Xavier Veilhan Solo Exhibition

Also the name of a very good Frank Ocean album, Channel Orange presents Veilhan’s latest experimental sculptures which focus on the transmuting and often subjective view of the human form. Known for his interest in exploring and playing with gallery and public space, Veilhan is a long-time affiliate of Perrotin, with this show his eight with the gallery.  

Until Aug 17, Perrotin.
