By Erica Martin
That’s Shanghai takes a look at the best art exhibitions of the week:
Xiang Jing: Through No One’s Eyes But My Own
The first female artist to hold a large-scale solo exhibit at the Long Museum, Beijing-born artist Xiang Jing debuts this 21-year retrospective of her work. Split thematically into the series “Mirror Image” (1999-2002), “Keep in Silence,” “Naked Beyond Skin,” “Will Things Ever Get Better?” and “S,” the exhibit explores what Xiang calls the “sensory apprehension” of art.
Until Feb 25, Long Museum West Bund. 3398 Longteng Lu, by Ruining Lu 上海市徐汇区龙腾大道3398号，近瑞宁路
This solo show of Hangzhou-born, Shanghai-based painter Tang Dixin displays the innovation and focus on the human body in his work. Embodying both the realistic and the abstract in his depictions of limbs, skeletons and faces that have often been rearranged and put back together, his work has both a visceral and a surreal quality.
Until Dec 31, Aike-Dellaro. Bldg 6, 2555 Longteng Da Dao, by Jichang Dong Yi Lu 龙腾大道2555号6号楼, 近机场东一路
Kim Eunjin: Our Time
This solo exhibition from Korean superrealist artist Kim Eunjin takes influence from Buddhism to explore issues about ecology and environmental pollution. Her vibrant, playful color scheme contrasts with the weighty subjects she tackles in her art.

Why New York
Long-time friends who first met in New York in the 1990’s, Chen Danqing, Feng Lianghong and Ma Kelu hold a retrospective collection made exclusively of their most recent works.
