New prints

Some 90 years ago, Lu Xun, the noted writer and avid collector of prints, set up a research unit for woodcuts in Shanghai. He introduced his collection of modern European prints to youngsters, which inspired the "new wave woodcut movement" and encouraged artists to make prints as a way to address social issues and people's concerns. This cultural phenomenon initiated by Lu Xun continued for decades and influenced generations of artists who kept their creations in pace with the times. In 2021, the Shanghai Artists Association launched an annual exhibition, Year-After-Year Archives, to showcase the development of contemporary prints by local artists. The second exhibition is being held at the Liu Haisu Art Museum through to Feb 19, and displays works that depict cityscapes, urban life and, most importantly, people of varying social ranks who have contributed to social progress.

9 am-5 pm, closed on Mondays.1609 Yan'an West Road, Changning district, Shanghai. 021-6270-1018.
