LIZ HINGLEY – SHANGHAI SACRED

6 June - 25 September 2019

VICTORIA ART GALLERY AND MUSEUM, UNIVERSITY OF LIVERPOOL

 

In Shanghai Sacred, at the Victoria Gallery & Museum, photographer and anthropologist Liz Hingley uncovers the spiritual landscape of China’s largest city, which currently sits at the forefront of the country’s unprecedented religious revival.

Evocative photographs reveal the spaces and rituals embedded deeply in the fabric of this cosmopolitan megalopolis of 24 million people. Shanghai is home to a multitude of religious groups from Buddhism and Islam, to Christianity and Baha’ism, to Hinduism and Daoism and many other alternative faiths. These are constantly growing and evolving, fed by a tide of globalisation and the limitless inventiveness of China’s people.

Shanghai Sacred (Washington University Press, 2018) was developed over four years by Liz Hingley, Professor Benoît Vermander of the Xu-Ricci Dialogue Center at Fudan University, and Zhang Liang of the Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences.

The unique bamboo structure that supports the installation has been designed by the Shanghai artist Chen Hangfeng and Liz Hingley to echo the city’s architectural craft and daring. The exhibition marks the 20th anniversary of the twinning of Liverpool and Shanghai.

Arts Council England, Liverpool City council, Foyle Foundation
