If you ever find yourself in Shanghai before December 16, I suggest that you check out “The Artist Is Present” exhibition by Maurizio Cattelan at the Yuz Museum. There are 16 rooms featuring over 30 contemporary artists. Definitely a thought-provoking exhibition. My personal highlights include the Sistine Chapel replica, the self-portraits of Gillian Wearing who wore prosthetics to look like her mom and her dad (who looked very handsome by the way), the Shanghai postcards by Aleksandra Mir, and of course, the Cloaca poop machine by Wim Delvoye! I know the human body is powerful but can you imagine recreating the entire digestion process? It’s insane! Oh and I could never look at pearls the same way again, thanks to Mika Rottenberg’s NoNoseKnows. The short film she made featuring pearl workers was quite potent, powerful and moving. Thank you @Gucci for inviting me and flying me to Shanghai to see this exhibition!
