100 Years of The Bund in KhekDhangKe 客堂间里的外滩百年
About the Exhibition 关于“客堂间里的外滩百年”
On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China, the Rockbund Art Museum is pleased to present 100 Years of the Bund in KhekDhangKe, casting light on the changing landscape and significant moments along the Bund area and probing into the evolution of urban cultures through comparisons between the past and the present. Curated by Xu Ming, founder of Urban Archaeology, an independent research organization with a focus on the history of Shanghai, the exhibition features 37 groups of panoramic photographs, wet plate photographs, panoramic illustrated posters and landscape paintings of the Bund area from the 19th to the 20th centuries.
Being an origin of the drastic development of modern Shanghai, an important destination for both tourists and local citizens, a prominent container for public and private memories, the Bund area in itself epitomizes the centuries-long vicissitudes of the city. Through the old images of the area, we intend to build a channel leading people to travel back to the Bund of the old times, to have an intuitive picture of the glories of the Bund and imbue new verve into the memories of the city.
值建党百年之际，上海外滩美术馆将带来全新的摄影展“客堂间里的百年外滩”，以摄影作品的展示和文献梳理，展现外滩区域的变化与重要节点，从历史和现今的对比中探讨城市与人文发展及变迁。 此次展览由独立上海史研究团体“城市考古”创始人徐明策划，汇集了19世纪和20世纪外滩地区的全景照片、 湿版照片、全景插画海报以及19世纪外滩风景画等37组作品。
