RAIN ROOM by RANDOM INTERNATIONAL
ASIA PREMIERE AT THE SHANGHAI YUZ MUSEUM
China’s preeminent musuem of contemporary art, the Yuz Museum in Shanghai, will present the first showing in Asia of a major installation from the Yuz Collection entitled Rain Room (2012) by the artists Random International. Rain Room was first presented at the Barbican in London (2012) and then at The Museum of Modern Art, New York (2013). It will be premiered in Asia at the Yuz Museum Shanghai from September 1st to December 31st 2015. The presentation in Shanghai has been made possible with the support of Volkswagen Group China.
This presentation of Rain Room at YUZ Museum in Shanghai is inspired by an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York organized by Klaus Biesenbach, Director MoMA PS1 and Chief Curator at Large, MoMA with Hans-Ulrich Obrist, Co-Director of the Serpentine Gallery and supported by Volkswagen Of America.
Rain Room is a large-scale environment of perpetually falling water that ceases to pour wherever a person walks.
Conceived by the artists Random International, Rain Room is on view courtesy of Yuz Collection who commissioned a site- specific installation of 150 sq. meters in response to the vast space of the Yuz Museum. In presenting the most ambitious scale of the work to date, the Shanghai exhibition will have over 50% more capacity than the previous exhibitions.
