PRADA PRESENTS “REAR WINDOWS” AT PRADA RONG ZHAI
Prada presents “Rear Windows”, a new exhibition project by artist Li Qing, with the support of Fondazione Prada, curated by art critic and curator Jérôme Sans. The exhibition is conceived as an immersive and site-specific installation, an in-depth exploration of the history and the space of Prada Rong Zhai, creating a connection between the past times and the current urban environment of Shanghai. Inspired by the iconic 1954 movie directed by Alfred Hitchcock, “Rear Windows”will examine the contradictions and the duality of our present lives, divided between authenticity and imitation, reality and reproduction. The exhibits - comprising recent artworks by Li Qing and new commissions - will “act as climatic scenes to experience the act of seeing, of being seen or observed” (Jérôme Sans).
