Walking On The Fade Out LinesMar 24, 2018 - May 27, 2018

  • The Rockbund Art Museum in Shanghai is proud to present the latest exhibition “Walking On The Fade Out Lines” from March 24 to May 27, 2018. The fruit of a fascinating collaboration and exchange with Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, one of the most renowned contemporary art institutions in Italy, the exhibition will be curated by Larys Frogier, the director of Rockbund Art Museum, and Hsieh Feng-Rong, the senior curator of Rockbund Art Museum. With 30 works from over 23 artists from all continents, spanning such various forms as paintings, interactive installations, photography, video, among others, the works are selected from the Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Collection, along with additional video works from Song Tao and new commissioned works from Zhang Ruyi, with the latter two artists originating from Shanghai and thus strengthening the rich connection to local contexts.

    “Walking On The Fade Out Lines” tackles the ways and angles of “seeing” and invites viewers to revisit history, explore unfamiliar cities and regions. Viewers can scrutinize how artists offer up dilemmas through creative questioning, examination, and analyses from the end of the 20th century to the present, as well as how the thinking of the “Alterity” of the trans-regional is proposed in a globalized context. Through a poetic elaboration, the exhibition attempts to transform the intrinsic understanding of cognitive structures that had gone along set paths, thereby offering up more open and plural interpretative perspectives.

  • About Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo

    Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo is a foundation for contemporary art, set up in Turin in 1995 by the contemporary art collector Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo. Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo saw the creation of the Fondazione as an opportunity to transform her passion for contemporary art into an organized activity, through which she could collaborate more effectively with Italian and international institutions. Since then, the Fondazione has gone on to produce an annual exhibition program that supports contemporary artists, and to commission and co-produce highly influential works of contemporary art for presentation at the Fondazione’s main space in Turin or for biennales and festivals abroad. Recent commissions include works and exhibitions by Adrian Villar Rojas, Ian Cheng and Ed Atkins. The Fondazione’s main aim is to encourage a greater understanding of contemporary art and of today’s leading trends at an international level. The vast field of visual arts—painting, sculpture, photography, video, installation and performance—is analyzed and presented to the public not only through their exhibition program but also through an array of in-depth educational activities and events, such as conferences as well as talks led by artists, curators and critics from acclaimed Italian and international institutions.
