Art springs back amid pandemic with new exhibit
From:Shanghai Daily  |  2020-04-25 04:29

NEW art exhibits in Shanghai have been few and far between since the coronavirus outbreak, but “Cache: from B to Z” at ShanghART Gallery, which runs until June 12, is yet another sign the city is springing back to life.

The exhibition showcases works from 38 artists under a “cache” theme, examining strategies and mindsets people use to deal with life’s exceptional, out-of-the-ordinary moments.

It features well-known artists such as Ding Yi, Li Shan and Zhang Enli.

The word “cache” comes from French and means hidden place or shelter. It’s used in computer engineering to mean temporarily storing data for quickly accessed future requests.

The exhibit uses “cache” to reference not only technology but also strategies people use requiring wisdom and resolution to fulfill multiple needs and find the best solutions in complex situations.

It also explores the gallery’s “best solution” to stage the event amid the pandemic.

About 60 selected works are “cached” in the exhibition hall, transforming it into a temporary art “database.”

Works are sorted based on initials of the artists’ names and beckon viewers to answer the question, “In order to ‘respond’ as soon as spring comes, what is the most important thing you want to store in your ‘cache’?”

Date: Through June 12 (closed on Mondays), 11am-6pm

Address: 1F, Bldg 10, 2555 Longteng Avenue

Reservations required. Please call at 6393-3923.
