China’s longest-running contemporary art biennial takes on the theme “Cosmos Cinema” for its 14th edition, to take place at the Power Station of Art in Shanghai. The curator for the show is Anton Vidokle, the New York–based founder of e-flux and the Institute of the Cosmos. In a description of what’s in store, Vidokle said, “The interpretation of stars and planets gave rise to our origin stories, religions, systems of time, navigation, agricultural planning, science, social order, and most other key aspects of the organization of human life. Nonhuman forms of life are just as conditioned by its forces: no part of the terrestrial world can be separated from the effects of the sun, the moon, and the heavenly bodies.”
