30 years of changes in Pudong put on display

An exhibition chronicling 30 years of changes in Pudong will kick off today at the China Art Museum, the former Shanghai Expo site.

“Wind from the East,” being held in the 5,000-square-meter exhibition area, features paintings, photos, videos, sculptures and installations illustrating the seismic changes in Pudong since 1990.

“We can see the dramatic changes through works of artists and photos from residents,” said Huang Wei, director of the Pudong Culture, Tourism and Sports Bureau. “We have combined technology and art to showcase 30 years of memories and invite people to celebrate Pudong’s birthday together.”

The entrance is adorned by an impressive sculpture in the shape of a giant globe formed by 1,990 enameled plates, with 365 3D-printed flying seagulls and photos with a bird’s-eye view of Lujiazui’s evolution.

A wall with 1,210 photos shot by Pudong residents is on display along with a 30-meter-long oil painting of the Huangpu River’s east bank, once mostly paddy fields but now on par with the Bund on the opposite bank that jointly form the city’s iconic skyline.

A multimedia installation in the middle of the exhibition hall features videos taken by drones and photos from Pudong’s period of transformation.

More than 40 old televisions are placed together to form a modern installation with important news clips of Pudong’s development.

The free exhibition runs until November 30 and is open to the public from 10am to 6pm, Tuesdays through Sundays. Groups are required to make reservations one day in advance by calling 021-20252018.
