The exhibition in May at Osage Shanghai simulates a temporary dwelling for visitors to better learn a local lifestyle.

With the 2010 world expo opening during the month of May, Shanghai has gone through a dramatic process of gentrification. Such a face lift is to endorse the visions of the future by realising many high profile modernisation projects. Somewhat untouched by this master narrative is Duolun road where Osage Shanghai is located.

The social activities in this bazaar area project a humanistic spirit that not only speaks of a coexistence of the past and present, but it bears witness to a belief that has lived and is still living simultaneously. Situated at the former residence of renowned political writer Wang Zaoshi, Osage Shanghai invites nine artists to articulate the notion of home and to tease out the social relevance of a cultural institution relative to a vibrant neighbourhood. Home-stay attempts to unfold the many subtle readings of entertainment, displacement, memory, writing, narration, domesticity, nostalgia, migration and design, issues that have close ties with the exhibition site and its immediate surroundings.

Opening Reception: Saturday, 22.05.2010, 6pm

Cheng Ran, Midnight Art Museum, installation, 2009

An room composed of wood boards with a light house and disco balls in it. The museum is turned into a misty and shiny place, beautiful and superficial. A party place without any content but fog.
