Shanghai Biennial




Took a gander to get some inspiration at the Shanghai Art Museum. It's in a beautiful old building. The exhibition definitely had a China twist to it. Reflects a lot on Chinese culture, Communism and the emergence of modern art.

The Chinese are not afraid to ignore signs and walk up and touch the exhibits. Crossing velvet ropes, no problem. Its funny we put art on a pedestal, but only to be humbled when somebody throws it in a landfill.

Regardless, it has some value and I was glad to see the whole exhibit for about 5 USD. Imagine that. Six floors. What a value!
