In the 1990s, artist Chen Zhen came back to Paris from Shanghai to see a new development of a real estate advertisement in the subway car. It read: "Chen Zhen: Without going to New York and Paris, life could be internationalized." This slogan touched the artist who recently returned from Paris in regards to his mixed feelings towards the rapid urbanization and rising presence of consumerism in Shanghai. Inspired, he launched a series of studies and surveys, and in turn he created a large number of stunning works. From May 30, 2015 to October 7, 2015,the Shanghai Rockbund Art Museum will open a Chen Zhen one-person exhibition and focus on the artist’s most representative creations within this theme of internationalism, once again bringing us into the artist’s observation and reflection toward the city and the future. Furthermore, despite two decades having passed, it is clear that the artist’s reflections and speculations still have profound practical significance today.
In attempt to revisit the climatic period of the 1990s where Shanghai acted as a representative of Chinese cities regarding consumerism and globalization, Rockbund Art Museum is partnering with Shanghai Film Museum to promote "Chen Zhen: Without going to New York and Paris, life could be internationalized "as its main theme of special screenings from July to September of 2015. Through seven classic movies, this screening event will look back at the dramatic period of sudden economic and cultural change in Shanghai, experiencing the imaginative power of the now opened and reformed Chinese society towards the future and the world.
