CURRENT: Contemporary Art from Scotland (Phase Two)

THE Minsheng Art Museum and Cooper Gallery of University of Dundee are presenting an exhibition “CURRENT: Contemporary Art from Scotland (Phase Two).” It will stay open until mid-January.

Divided into two parts — Rewind and >>FFWD, the exhibition aims to introduce contemporary art from Scotland to art lovers in China and is the first of its kind on the mainland. It is the second exhibit in Shanghai after the successful showing in 2015.

The sequel focuses on the development of moving image works as well as exploring the characteristics of contemporary art that originated from Scotland — its true spirits and keen debates with social and political dimensions of art and culture.

The Rewind part will show the video works from the 1970s and 1980s from six established British artists: George Barber, David Critchley, Judith Goddard, David Hall, Stephen Partridge and Elaine Shemilt. The >>FFWD part consists of moving images works from four distinct angles — the body, history, narrative and time, created by 24 artists.

CURRENT is a two-year four-phase contemporary art exhibition and forum program.

The first phase of CURRENT in 2015 highlighted that the present is “the only moment that matters,” while the second phase continues this concept with a focus that the “contemporary” is nothing but the shadow of this very moment.

Date: Through January 15, 2017

Venue: Shanghai Minsheng Art Museum

Address: 570 Huaihai Rd W.
