Whitewaller Shanghai 2019: What to See

This week, we debut Whitewaller Shanghai for the the fairs debuting to the public today. Here’s what you need to see in and around the fairs.

Li Qing: Rear Windows
Prada Rong Zhai
November 7, 2019—January 19, 2020
Li Qing’s “Rear Windows” is an immersive, collaborative project conceived by the artist and curator Jérôme Sans, which is an in-depth exploration of its place of presentation, the Prada Rong Zhai. A 1918 historical residence restored and reopened by Prada in 2017, the exhibition was inspired by the eponymous Alfred Hitchcock film from 1954 and examines the history of the space, drawing connections between Shanghai’s past and current urban environment. The exhibition features a series of new works and commissions throughout Prada Rong Zhai, including a neon sign on its façade, a sound installation made specifically for the first-floor corridor, and a selection of paintings from the series “Images of Mutual Undoing and Unity and Find Differences.”

Mario Botta for La Prairie
West Bund Art & Design
November 7—10
On the occasion of the release of its newest Platinum Rare Collection in China, La Prairie has commissioned Swiss architect Mario Botta for its third year of partnering with West Bund Art & Design fair. For the project, Botta created an installation inspired by the origin of life—Archisculpture—which takes on the form of a wooden pavilion and will engage fairgoers in an immersive experience on the grounds of the West Bund Art Center. Meant to be observed from the exterior as well as the interior, once inside Archisculpture, visitors will become part of the art, as an entrancing soundscape engulfs them in a reflection of humankind in confrontation with a man-made creation.

White Cube
West Bund Art & Design and ART021 Shanghai Contemporary Art Fair
November 7—10
White Cube will return to West Bund Art & Design with a presentation of works by several artists including Tracey Emin, Antony Gormley, Beatriz Milhazes, David Altmejd, Chuck Close, Al Held, and Cerith Wyn Evans. The gallery will also be showing works by Chinese artists Wang Gongxin and Qin Yifeng, whose solo exhibition “Negative Reading | Reading Negatives” is currently on view at the gallery’s Hong Kong location, where it will remain through November 16.

Additionally, the gallery will make its debut at ART021 Shanghai Contemporary Art Fair with a solo showing of London-based artist Eddie Peake. The presentation features around 20 works by Peake, whose multidisciplinary practice incorporates elements of music, dance, pop culture, and a range of themes from Renaissance sculpture to Modernist architecture. The works on view include pieces like an acid-hued spray-painted canvas Romance and Cigarettes, the 2016 work on stainless steel One Man Army, and Triple Selfie featuring one of Peake’s recurring alter-ego motifs, a cartoon-like faun.
