Superstar at MAM Shanghai, Russell Young
The exhibition fully explores how Young re-contextualises popular culture from the second half of the twentieth century to today. His move to America in the early 1990s drove his fascination with the power of images to define popular culture. This has resulted in a body of work that boldly projects Young's commanding and unapologetic vision of modern life and the people and events that have shaped it. The exhibition features a cast of characters that define the building blocks of Western counterculture while firmly embracing a cultural shift toward the East and its growing influence on the world stage.
