Xu Bing : Gravitational Arean  2022-08-12 - 2023-08-01

The new exhibition Xu Bing: Gravitational Arena opened officially on August 12th, 2022 in the Exhibition Hall X of Museum of Art Pudong (MAP). This exhibition was produced by the Lujiazui Group and organized by MAP. Composed of 1,600 metal Square Word Calligraphy characters, with a visual depth of more than 50 meters, this giant installation was tailored by artist Xu Bing for the Exhibition Hall X at MAP, a unique art space across the globe. It is another astonishing piece of commissioned work exhibited at the Museum since its opening.

As an unprecedented spectacular installation, Gravitational Arena takes the most advantage of the Exhibition Hall X's spatial features rather than being simply "placed" in the exhibition space. A colossal vortex of characters is formed in the hall, stretching to the ground from more than 30 meters high. Apart from the tensions and contortions caused by gravitation, the characters are reflected by a big mirror on the floor, thus prominent is the mutual "penetrating" sensation of depth between the artwork and the space.

Xu Bing: Found in Translation  2021-12-24 - 2022-11-13

Xu Bing, born in 1955, is widely recognized as one of the leading conceptual artists working with language and semiotics today.

Xu Bing: Found in Translation, showcases the various phases of Xu Bing’s artistic career through the nearly 70 sets of major works that encompass prints, installations, archives, manuscripts, videos, documentaries, etc. The exhibition presents the unparalleled artistic language into which the artist translates by means of oriental philosophy and the art classics that shine through the global art world: from writing experience as the essence of Chinese art, from visual fragments collected from social scenes to new conceptual movies and installations, from traditional Chinese characters to the wide-ranging practice of futuristic meta-language, as well as the latest space art practice. Thanks to his forte in employing the “growing materials”, Xu Bing’s works possess prophetic properties.

The 1F gallery centers on Book from the Sky, unveiling the infinite possibilities of language through a variety of artworks based on languages and texts, such as Monkeys Grasp for the Moon, Square Word Calligraphy, The Seven-character Poetry Collection of Small Enterprises, Book from the Ground, among others. The 3F galleries comprise artworks like Square Word Calligraphy, Background Story, Mustard Seed Garden Landscape Scroll, Phoenix and Dragonfly Eyes, etc. Such exploration of the artistic language with a multi-cultural background, energy collected from social scenes, and diversified materials, maximizes the visitors' experience of exhibition viewing and the fun of contemplation.

 Different from Xu Bing's previous historical retrospectives, this exhibition focuses on the themes of civilization and language and strives to present a high concentration of thoughts and cultures. In addition to fulfilling the visual experience, the exhibition puts a greater emphasis on its significant academic value. The artist will also reveal in April 2022 his new large-scale installation titled The Gravity of Civilization which will take up the Hall X at MAP. This site-specific piece will utterly resonate with the entire exhibition. Xu Bing: Found in Translation aims to constantly challenge the viewers' intellectual capacity and break the boundary of artistic recognition to inspire both enlightenment and wisdom.

Professor Hans Maria De Wolf (Belgium) from Brussels Diplomatic Academy serves as the academic host of this exhibition. Sun Hua, Feng Yu, Zhao Yifeng, the young artists of AHA Union, take charge of curatorial and exhibition design.



Frequently Asked Questions
  • Can I choose a specific seat?

    Unfortunately, no. Ticketing systems in China vary from venue to venue, and many are not advanced enough to offer specific seat selection. The event promoters and venues that we work with currently have no systems in place that allow third party ticketing agents to access their respective floors plans. However, whenever you buy a ticket from us, you will automatically receive the best available seats within the category you've selected. Sometime the tickets price categories' name won't be matched on the actually physical tickets. But the value will be the same you choose.

  • How do I pay for my tickets?

    We have a couple of payment options available; 1. Online Payment: We now support WeChat and Alipay for online purchases. Simply scan the QR the payment page directs you to. 2. Cash/Card on Delivery: You can also pay our delivery staff directly either in cash, or with a local UnionPay card. Overseas clients can also pay via bank transfer, however, you’ll need to send us an email so we can sort out bank info and e-invoice. If you need a fapiao for your purchase, then please email us the relevant details (company title, tax number and your order number) .

  • What happens if the show gets cancelled? Will I get my money back?

    Yes, SmartTickets always refunds ticket purchases if a show gets cancelled. This guarantee is one of the reasons that people choose to purchase through SmartTickets instead of less reliable sources. Please note, though, that we only refund the face value of the tickets.

  • I live outside Shanghai, how can I get my tickets?

    We can deliver the tickets to you through Shunfeng Express if you are located outside Shanghai. For this option, purchase the tickets online using Alipay or WeChat. Please fill in the booking information with your address in Chinese to avoid confusion in the delivery process. Please note: We can only accept cash for deliveries within certain Shanghai area (for details, see the "cash on delivery" area map). Overseas customers may also choose the bank transfer option by emailing us. We will then send you an invoice with the bank transfer info after you’ve placed the order. However, the delivery address must be in Shanghai, for example, to a hotel. For more details, please contact us.

  • Oops! I missed the online payment QR code the first time!

    If you missed your payment QR code, you can find it again on the Order Status page. Enter your booking code and email address, then click the big green "Pending Payment" button. Please note: online payment orders will automatically be canceled if the payment is not completed within 30 mins.

  • Can I pay online with a credit card?

    Unfortunately, no. We've been working to implement an online payment system, which should be available soon! The nature of risk management and licensing issues with online payments made within China makes it a particularly delicate process.

  • If I lose my ticket, can I get a replacement?

    Unfortunately, all physical tickets are not replaceable. The concert venues have fixed seat numbers, and to avoid conflicts caused by duplicate tickets with the same seats, ticketing agencies and promoters are not permitted to print tickets twice. If you've lost your e-ticket, you can login to the order status page and resend the e-ticket to your email.
