Shanghai M50. What is art?

<<Art is nothing!>> repeated a young Shanghai artist; but art is also the expression of themselves seemed to think at the same time, while showing me the works of a Chinese artist who has exhibited several times abroad and who seems to have learned the lesson to deconstruct Chinese ideograms, symbol of their culture, to make new signs that seems to belong to the dream, even a little to the nightmare for the truth, definitely the expression of deep deep emotion. If art is both nothing and everything to this young artist, her feelings and contradictions appear as the symbol of a young generation of Chinese that runs through this new century with the empty-full of their culture behind and a daily bunch of informations traveling liquid to the speed of light on digital media and at the same time with the slowness of a typical street vendor of this city. Music, painting, installations, everything is mixed for an approach to the art of a thousand forms in the most populous cities in the world and certainly one of the most dynamic cities, interesting and active in art as in everything else. Moganshan Lu, or as they call it here M50 (where 50 is simply the number of the neighborhood), still remains the focus of the artistic life of the city even if West Bund promises well for the future. Here, in a neighborhood where there were once old factories, there are now art galleries of all kinds, restaurants, bars, a few shops of photographs (some of them a little bit touristic) and a lot of activities and excitement where mix contemporary art at the oriental manner, proposals from international artists, performances and any influence that comes from the communist past and not, taking new shape and life in the imaginary modern reinterpretation of Shanghai people.

 

 

 

 

Lets colours explode in your life

What does David along with Wolverine and Spiderman but also teamed with Captain America as if they were the heads of two ancient gods? “Ninphea colormination” is the title of one of the work of an youung talian artist. Its contamination of color in white classical figures or in the aesthetics of the new gods of the Marvel pantheon surprise and excite and force us to bring to light all the emotions that explode in our lives separated from the object itself that produces them. From the more traditional images of ancient art to that of the contemporary icons, Daniele Fortuna contaminates art and captures with its colors. Want to know more?
