Until Aug 24: Approaches to Abstraction – Group Exhibition

The first-ever exhibition to be held in Almine Rech’s newly opened space in Shanghai, the international gallery brings together six of their rostered artists to explore modern approaches to abstraction. Almine Rech, which first opened in Paris in 1997, has spaces in the French capital, Brussels, London, New York and, now, Shanghai. This show opens on July 12, with the vernissage taking place from 5-7pm. Attendees will also be given the opportunity to tour the space and see a showroom presentation of Jeff Koons editions. 

Until Aug 24, Almine Rech

Until Aug 25: The Spectre of Order – Group Exhibition

Condo Shanghai kicks of this weekend, with 21 galleries collaborating across seven spaces around Shanghai. At Edouard Malingue Gallery, the space will team up with three Latin American galleries, LABOR (Mexico), 80m2 Livia Benavides (Peru) and Proyectos Ultravioleta (Guatemala) to present very different works from artists who investigate such diverse topics as gender politics, time and memory, as well as the dense visual landscape of cities. 

Until Aug 25, Edouard Malingue Gallery

Until Aug 30: Space/Reflection – Group Exhibition

Presenting nine artists in collaboration with Baltimore gallery Springsteen and Los Angeles space 1301PE. The old Cartesian conundrum of interpreting space in a totally subjective manner gets divided up at this group exhibition as the artists on show discuss the varied sensory interpretations, and the galleries combine the works to show how we can experience while looking and absorbing the same exact image.

Until Aug 30, A+ Contemporary

Until Sep 1: New Order – Solo Exhibition

Rising young artist Shang Liang brings some recent works to MadeIn Gallery this weekend. Lauded for her unique style, which makes us of elements of cubism, surrealism and the type of written, off-the-cuff graffiti seen in Basquiat’s paintings, it is perhaps Shang’s borderless depictions of the human body that are the most fascinating aspect of her particular approach to art. 

Until Sep 1, MadeIn Gallery

Until Sep 8: Antenna Space x Foxy Production x Commonwealth and Council – Group Exhibition

Another space participating in Condo Shanghai, Antenna Space team up with Foxy Production, a New York-based gallery, and LA-based Commonwealth and Council to bring works from a variety of artists, including new media maven Lu Yang, Gao Ludi, Young Joon Kwak and other exciting young Asian artists. Other spaces in Shanghai that are participating in Condo Shanghai this year are A+ Contemporary, Gallery Vacancy, Mao Space, Edouard Malingue Gallery, Qiao Space and Aike. 

Until Sep 8, Antenna Space

Until Oct 13: Stuart Middleton – Solo Exhibition

Teaming up with London gallery Carlos/Ishikawa, Qiao Space play host to Glawsgow-based Stuart Middleton, who will show off works from the past three years. Known for his super realistic, often funny, often poignant works that span many different media, Middleton combines a voracious talent for everything from painting to sketching, sculpture and writing with the very unique British wit, creating works whose significance and meaning change over time. 

Until Oct 13, Qiao Space
