Shanghai Biennale

The 10th Shanghai Biennale will focus on resources and energy, while the curatorial team will study the energy of sites, memories, will, comprehension and, ultimately, the community.

The Biennial aims to expand Shanghai’s importance as the ‘gateway to the west’ through the arts sector. Additionally, it means to serve as an international platform for the self-portrayal of China and Shanghai. The Shanghai Biennial not only provides a platform for the showcase of contemporary art production, but also forums where artists can meet, challenge their work and expand their experience.

The Shanghai Biennial offers an international exchange of ideas, while bringing together artists, curators, writers, theorists and art supporters from all around the world.

The Biennial has become a critical space of dialogue within an increasingly global art market. Additionally, the biennial is highlighting the increasingly important role of artistic production in the Asia-Pacific region.
