Shanghai's Jing'an International Sculpture Project features work by Richard Long, Pedro Reyes and Julian Opie
23 November 2020
The sixth edition of Shanghai’s Jing’an International Sculpture Project features works by Richard Long, Pedro Reyes and Julian Opie. The biennale this year brings together sculptural works by an international line up of 29 artists around the theme “Reshaping Space”, extending beyond the bounds of the Sculpture Park and into the busy streets of the Jing’an district. Among the 55 works on display, Richard Long’s ‘Four Ways’ plants a large scale cross-shaped footprint of Cornish Delabole Slate into the city’s landscaped grounds, whilst Pedro Reyes’ colossal work ‘Unite’ reaches to the sky, pushing at the boundary between sculpture and architecture.
Continuing this dialogue with the urban environment, three monolithic LED works by Julian Opie present vibrant portraits of city walkers. The artist's first exhibition with Lisson Gallery in Shanghai is on view now through 27 February 2021.
The Jing'an International Sculpture Project is on view until 31 December.
