This exhibition would encourage discussion around three aspects, and the curatorial framework will help to clarify the sequential role the Shanghai art groups have played within the larger framework of the development of Chinese contemporary art in general. This exhibition is not only an overview of the Shanghai contemporary art scene, but also the first time that several generations of characteristic artists from Shanghai (including different age groups, different artistic approaches) have been brought together in the form of an exhibition. In this way, the exhibition also is an accumulation of the city’s cultural growth and current status through the perspectives and attitudes of nearly 50 artists and cultural practitioners who have contributed to the urban culture of Shanghai. We can comfortably say that History in the Making: Shanghai 1979 – 2009 will be a 3-dimensional historical analysis of the Shanghai contemporary art scene.
