The curatorial committee of the Shanghai Biennale recently held a conference in which curators Fan Di'an, Li Lei, Hua Yi and Gao Shiming revealed their vision for the upcoming biennale scheduled for late October 2010. Titled The Tournament Art Exhibition, the 8th Shanghai Biennale will feature several collaborative projects. Working with Long March Project the Biennale will launch a programme called Ho Chi Minh Trail in which international and local artists, curators and scholars will be invited to participate in panel discussions in each historic city on the itinerary. Other highlights include a collaboration with NY-based Performa and an experimental drama co-produced with Manifesta.
