上海市区正经历着前所未有的快速变化。世世代代居住在这里的人们正在搬离他们的祖居,因此,一个特殊的城市生活环境也在消失。
本次展览旨在观察老上海居住区的日常生活中的独特性,以及由此塑造的独特生活景象。
我们发现,居住的空间曾经是个寺庙,或是隐藏在朴素外墙后面的奢华古代住宅,又或是埋在日常生活的废墟,还有些被破毁的房屋是用一些手头的材料修复的。由于老上海房屋里生活空间不足,人们利用起来外面的街道和其他公共空间,比如晾衣、储物或“私人花园”。也因为老房子的条件原因,“厨房”是在房子外面的,你会在弄堂过道看到邻居们同时出来一起洗菜烧饭。这些都使得上海的生活景象具有独特气息。
每个艺术家从不同的视角观察,并以绘画的形式展示。

Downtown Shanghai is undergoing an unprecedented rapid change. People who have been living here for generations are moving away from their ancestral residence and their lifestyle is changing dramatically. As a consequence, also a specific urban environment is vanishing.
This exhibition aims to observe the peculiarities of everyday life in Old Shanghai and the distinctive ways people have been shaping their urban environment here. We call this Old Shanghai’s Lifescape. 
Welcome to join our adventures. The adventure of finding people living in what used to be a temple and discovering lavish ancient residences hidden behind humble facades, buried in the rubble of daily life. Finding out how houses, ruined in the last war, were repaired with materials at hand. As the living spaces in old Shanghai have been scarce, people have made use of the streets and other public spaces, such as hanging laundry, storage or "private garden". Also because of the condition of the old house, the "kitchen" is outside of the house, and you will see neighbors washing dishes and cooking in the narrow alley together. All these make Shanghai Lifescape even more fascinating. 
Every artist has a different approach.Here we present our findings in the form of drawings, paintings, and comments accompanying these art pieces.


关于写生上海

“写生上海”由一群想要通过绘画探索上海的朋友们于2014年6月创立。时至今日,它已逐渐发展成为一个写生爱好者的社区。上海这座城市是我们主要的灵感来源,每周六上午我们都会选取不同的地方去走走,去看看,不停探索把其刻画在纸上的方法。活动是免费的,欢迎任何基础的朋友们前来参加。希望志趣相投的人们可以在这里通过速写互相激励、互相启发。

AboutDrawing Shanghai

“Drawing Shanghai” was founded in June 2014 by a group of friends who wanted to explore Shanghai by drawing together. It gradually grew into a community of sketching lovers. We draw in different places in Shanghai every Saturday morning. The city is our main inspiration, and we are in constant search of ways to capture it on paper. People of any technical level are welcome to participate for free. We hope like-minded people can inspire each other by sketching.
