Liu Wa’s Milk Moon includes a single-channel video and scultpures, as the artist considers the line between the material and immaterial worlds. Meanwhile, Pu Yingwei integrates videos and paintings to discuss the consumerism and the drastic boom of capital in China. Finally, Su Yu-Xin uses her painting practice to show the distance between time spent painting and the plane surface on which we see the paintings. 

Until February 28, MadeIn Gallery

A Labile Boundary At Best – Han Bing Solo Exhibition

Han Bing uses abstract shapes, diverging from depictions of reality, in order to present interpretations of memory and of culture. The artist uses oil paint on canvas to create thicker, more physical depictions. She dwells on the idea of angels at different points, while also delving into her own ideas of texture as she depicts in her own unique way a scene at a construction site. 

Until March 10, Antenna Space

Your Life, My Dream – Jiu Society

Jiu Society, a trio of artists who grew up and live in Shenzhen, focus their creative ideas around topics like urban migration and the role of cities and city branding in the lives of modern day urban dwellers. This exhibition takes the form of scultpure and a video showing a performative chase. 

Until March 29, Vanguard Gallery

HOW Art Museum bring together works a decade of Li Binyuan’s career, starting Saturday, November 23. Recorded performances of works that explore the nature of experiments with uncertain outcomes, the physicality and strength of the body and inert objects, as well as traditional sculpture and the nature of tension between objects and between people, make this a key viewing experience. 

Until Mar 15, HOW Art Museum

Rear Windows – Li Qing Solo Exhibition

Li Qing takes the gorgeous Prada Rong Zhai and creates unique, sometimes stifling atmospheres throughout its old rooms. Playing around with ideas of old and new Shanghai, of obsession and more, Li places these idiosyncratic ideas within a space that is also imbued with the everyday, establishing a fantastic contrast. 

Until January 19, Prada Rong Zhai.
