Prada presents “Rear Windows”, a new exhibition project by artist Li Qing, with the support of Fondazione Prada. Curated by Jérôme Sans, the show will be on view from 7 November 2019 to 19 January 2020 in the premises of Prada Rong Zhai, a 1918 historical residence in Shanghai restored by Prada and reopened in October 2017.
“Rear Windows” is conceived as an immersive and site-specific installation, an in-depth exploration of the history and the space of Prada Rong Zhai, creating a connection between the past times and the current urban environment of Shanghai. The exhibits, comprising recent artworks by Li Qing and new commissions, will “act as climatic scenes to experience the act of seeing, of being seen or observed”, in Jérôme Sans’ words. Inspired by the iconic 1954 movie directed by Alfred Hitchcock, the project will examine the contradictions and the duality of our present lives, divided between authenticity and imitation, reality and reproduction.
