Shanghai Art Symposium

I traveled to Shanghai, China January 3rd – 13th for the ArtShape Mammoth Symposium and Art Exhibition. Vera Sun, who lives in Shanghai, was our curator, interpreter and guide.

Special thanks to Vera, Amy and ArtShape Mammoth for all of the planning. And to all of my generous friends and family who made the trip financially possible through an Indiegogo fundraising campaign. I also received funding from a University of Wisconsin – Barron County Professional Development grant.

Thank you Chen Qiang, Que Fengguo, Pan Wei and Huang Yuanqing for letting us tour your art studios and for sharing in the art conversation, the Vanke Center and curator Polo for hosting the 5×5 event, and the East China Normal University Art Department.

The art exhibition was held at Gallery 203 at 50 Moganshan Road, which is a popular art district in Shanghai.
