That's Shanghai takes a look at the best art exhibitions of the week:

Mika Shimauchi Exhibition Opening

The opening of this exhibit showcases works that are impressive, crude, dark and comical. They catalogue the artist's grappling with existential dread in a range of mediums that are worth a gander.

Oct 13 - Nov 11, Shun Art Gallery, see event listing.

Metaphysics | Objects

Collage, fragmentation and cognitive frameworks are central to Yi Nan's work, and ATA Space is putting on a solo exhibition of the artist opening this weekend. These mixed medium pieces offer alternative perspectives on conflicting art historical narratives, creating entirely new images from preexisting ones.

Oct 13 - Nov 24, ATA Space.

Construction of Reality: Leandro Elrich

Argentine artist Leandro Herlich invites us to question our perception of reality and the world around us in his major solo exhibition at How Art Museum. This exhibition closing on Monday combines photography, video, interactive installations as well as optical illusions to disrupt the orientation and perception of viewers.

Until October 15, How Art Museum.

Zigzagging My Way Home

Franklin Chow's first solo exhibition in China will close on Wednesday. Painting, installations, objects, sculptures and video catalogue the different stages of his career, coupled with writings and ink drawings. From Shanghai, to Paris, Hong Kong to Switzerland, the artist's different chapters of life and place-specific cultural infuences have shaped and transformed his practice, and this exhibition is a testimony to that.

Until Oct 17, Power Station of Art.

Bodega Run

Tshcabalala Self's solo exhibition at Yuz Project Space of Art highlights the Bodegas of New York City alongside paintings, sculptures and video. The family run corners stores featured in Self's show capture an aspect of the Black-American and Latinx community that has yet to be shown in a Chinese instution.

Until Dec 9, Yuz Museum

Bank is simultaneously running three solo shows from Sun Yitian, Kim Laughton and Wang Rui. These consumerist works range from 3D animation to an "immersive imagery feast" examining the fragile psychological boundries between the virtual and the real.

Until Oct 28, Bank Gallery.
