Turn to Abstract: Retrospective of Shanghai Experimental Art from 1976 to 1985 will be held at Shanghai Zendai Museum of Modern Art on 28, May. 1976-1985 is a special period in the history of fine arts in Shanghai. Though it had been quite a while after Cultural Revolution, the overall cultural atmosphere was still very tense. Nevertheless, experimental art of Shanghai artists had never completely discontinued during the Cultural Revolution. A lot of artists had shown their extraordinary talents and creativity during this particular decade. Despite the fact that art works created within this period were widely considered as imitation of Western contemporary art schools, it did bring fresh blood to the stagnant art scene in Shanghai in terms of innovation of artistic language.
