City in Progress: Live From Zhang Jiang
In recent years, the large-scale development of high-tech creative zones has become not only a hot topic in urban planning, but in cultural construction as well. The management of the Zhang Jiang High-Tech Park is dedicated to exploring the integration of culture and technology, and culture and the city. As a result, curators, scholars, and artists are invited to test out the possibilities of integrating contemporary art with this high-tech zone. For this project City In Progress / Live From Zhang Jiang, artists are invited to make preliminary visits to the Zhangjiang site, analyze its developmental issues, and submit proposals that could benefit the area's development. The results of this on-site research are consequently displayed on location in Zhang Jiang High-Tech Park and in an exhibition at The Shanghai Gallery of Art. Images of works in the present catalogue are accompanied by artist statements.
