Josephsohn at the Shanghai Westbund
Art & Design Fair

September 25, 2014 to October 26, 2014

This fall the Westbund Art & Design Fair is being held for the first time on a former industrial site in Shanghai. At the art fair, which takes place from September 25 to 29, 2014, the Kesselhaus Josephsohn / Galerie Felix Lehner will present works by Hans Josephsohn.

With the participation in this fair, Josephsohn’s work will be exhibited in China for the very first time. In the spacious stand of the Kesselhaus Josephsohn, it will be possible to see not only late, monumental half-figures, but also figurative sculptures and early abstract works. The entire spectrum of Josephsohn’s oeuvre will thus be presented to the public. The film ‹Josephsohn Bildhauer› (2005) by Matthias Kälin and Laurin Merz, which has been given Chinese subtitles for this event, provides insights into Josephsohn’s creative process.

The Shanghai Westbund Art & Design Fair focuses on a small selection of some twenty galleries active internationally. It was co-initiated by the renowned Chinese artist Zhou Tiehai and has an unconventional concept: the five days of the fair are followed by three-week-long exhibition period (October 1 to 26) with the aim of reaching a broader public. The fair takes place in a former production hall of an aircraft manufacturer, which is currently being modified for the fair. Nearby the fair grounds are the recently opened Long Museum West Bund and the Yuz Museum, two museums for contemporary art.
