This exhibition features monumental sculptures and installations that represent the unique urban environments of five Asian “megacities”– Beijing, Shanghai, Mumbai, Delhi, and Seoul—all with populations of 10 million or more. The artists—some well-known, others emerging—respond to the unprecedented scale and pace of 21st-century South and East Asian urban life by gathering and arranging everyday objects, using the city itself as their medium, to create immersive physical experiences that evoke and respond to recent conditions in these Asian metropolises. Their large-scale works will appear in indoor and outdoor spaces throughout the Museum, reflecting critical issues including rural-to-urban migration, consumption, construction, and pollution—while celebrating the vibrancy of today’s urban environment. This workshop will feature a talk by one of the exhibition’s curators, as well as gallery explorations that will demonstrate some of the ways you can incorporate contemporary art into different areas of your curriculum.
