The Landgent Center is pleased to announce the opening of Urban Play- Site-specific Public Art Exhibition on Nov. 17, 2011.
“I would like to think of the exhibition as a small-scale, alternative approach designed to investigate and discuss the urban reality in which we live.” says the curator Tang Zehui. Over the past three months, artists have been working on-site in the Landgent Center—a complex including office buildings, a shopping mall, subway station and plaza—investigating its cultural and social, as well as physical, conditions from each of their own perspectives.
“In this exhibition art does not come down to the street, but rather is growing from there. The works are initiated by the artists but they interact, interweave and grow together with existing lifestyles and social textures in the area, rather than imposing upon them.”
“Urban Play” is of free admission, on view through Dec. 25.
