Just as money is the paper, the gallery is the room takes as its focus artist-organized exhibitions
between 1979 and 2006 in Shanghai. The role of artists as “curators” in today’s terminology, has since
more or less vanished from the scene due to the commercialization of art and exhibition making and
viewing methods; this exhibition thus attempts to re-activate this local knowledge and practice
through involving a number of local and international artists, hoping to bring together common
threads from the larger context of exhibition-making practices across the region to explore exhibitions
as an epistemological engine and to re-think the rituals within the art system. The structure of the
exhibition will be dynamic and will be developed in conversation with these local and international
artists and curators.
The visual experience of the exhibition is conceived in collaboration with architect Ségolène Dubernet.
Special thanks to Qian Weikang, Shi Yong, Tang Guangming, Zhang Jian-Jun, Zheng Shengtian and
Zhou Zixi for providing archival materials and works.
