The Institute for Contemporary Culture (ICC) at the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) presents Shanghai Kaleidoscope from May 4, 2008 to November 2, 2008. Organized by the ICC at the ROM and guest-curated by Christopher Phillips of New York's International Center for Photography, the exhibition will offer an unprecedented view of one of the world's most dynamic cities, highlighting an emerging generation of Chinese artists, architects and fashion designers. The exhibition, presented by Manulife Financial, will be on display in the ICC's Roloff Beny Gallery on Level 4 of the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal.

Shanghai Kaleidoscope focuses on the key aspects of the city's vibrant culture: architecture, urban design, contemporary art, cinema and fashion. Working with the ICC, curatorial consultant Christopher Phillips has created the world's first exhibition that examines the city's fascinating and quick reconfiguration as a 21st century city through an adventurous mix of video installations, photo-works, designer fashion apparel, runway videos and films by Shanghai's leading contemporary artists and designers.

The exhibition provides an insider's view of the city's high-speed, high-density, high-rise culture, seen from the vantage point of those who are taking part in its astonishing transformation and growth.

“We're pleased to present these impressive works by some of China's most talented contemporary artists and designers,” said William Thorsell, ROM Director andCEO. “The spacious, angular ICC gallery will provide a dramatic backdrop to evoke the energy and vitality of contemporary Shanghai for the ROM's visitors.”
