Site-specific installations by Cao Fei, Aki Sasamoto, and Wong Ping and an outdoor installation by Erwin Wurm in a year-long outdoor exhibition set the stage for an open, fluid, interactive, and thought-provoking space for public art at UCCA Edge.
The new UCCA Edge officially opens to the public in Shanghai on May 22, 2021. Opening concurrently with the inaugural exhibition City on the Edge: Art and Shanghai at the Turn of the Millennium, from May 22, 2021 to May 22, 2022, UCCA Edge presents the year-long outdoor exhibition Urban Theater: A Comedy in Four Acts. The group show transforms the wraparound outdoor terrace of the museum into a thought-provoking space for public art and an open and fluid setting to stimulate new curiosity and interactions with art for the museum's new audience in Shanghai. Urban Theater: A Comedy in Four Acts is curated by UCCA Curator Ara Qiu.
