Everyone revels in their own way. Some reveling has changed the course of history, while most others are merely acts of self-indulgence. The Tang Dynasty poet Li Bai reveled in drunken binges that helped produce lyrics that have delighted generations since. The counter-culture movement of the 1960s in America and Europe reveled in alternative lifestyles that have shaped global culture today. At one point or other each of us has reveled in our own miseries and fantasies. At this moment we have seized the occasion of Shanghai MoCA’s 8th year anniversary to revel in the recent history of this city’s burgeoning visual culture scene.

For this exhibition MoCA Shanghai has invited some of the most revered, international art stars, as well as promising younger talent from Shanghai and beyond to revel in the spirit of this great city’s imaginative forces. Like Shanghai itself, the museum has been divided into quarters – or exhibitions within the exhibition, which act as a way to assess the mutual inspiration, shared influences and diverse approaches to revelry that the creative incubator of Shanghai harbors.

We invite you to revel along with us!
