This section of SH Contemporary Projects is dedicated to single, large scale, site-specific works and on-site performances by renowned artists, including Shilpa Gupta, MadeIn Company, Aaditi Joshi, Chen Zhou, Huang Zhiyang, Shi Qing, Yuh-Shioh Wong, and Roberto Paci Dalò with Fudan University students, who will perform during the vernissage and the first day of the fair, a new project speciafically produced in Shanghai for SH Contemporary.
Debuting this year are projections on the ground hall’s giant screen. The idea is to give a unique platform to artists and enrich the experience of visitors by making the space itself breathe and perform. Stars like Zhang Enli, Yto Barrada, Raqs Media Collective and Maurizio Anzeri have all produced new works for this experiment.
For Hot Spots 2012 Arthub Asia enjoyed the contribution of Shanghai-based artist and curator Shi Yong and India-based curator Diana Campbell.
