Last week: Come to the Weather War with the Curator

SERIES

Minsheng Lecture

The ongoing exhibition in Shanghai Minsheng Art Museum, The Weather War is going to end soon, where two Swedish artists are presenting their thoughts towords the climate through the video, sculpture, installations and photography.   

The Weather War is curated by Wang Kaimei, rated at least four stars in all five aspects of Ya Chang monthly curator influence list, including academics, curation, exhibition effect, public cognition and influence and internationalization. (See http://news.artron.net/20170330/n919992_2.html)

This Sunday, as the last day of this exhibition, Wang Kaimei will again show up in the exhibition hall to accompany the visitors. Those two artists based their art experience on the science; they interview the professionals in the climate area and even physically got into the weather. Why did they do that? What did those strange installation want to express? If you have any other doubts or want to discuss with Kaimei, you must come to it!
