Art in Times of Corona: World Press Photo Special Exhibition

‘Our World 2018-2020’ shows photos and stories highlighting the natural world and humanity’s impact on it.
19 November 2020

The World Press Photo Special Exhibition ‘Our World 2018-2020’ is on view from November 15 to December 13 at Bund 18 Jiushi Art Gallery in Shanghai, China. This exhibition presents winning photos and stories from Nature and Environment categories of the 2018-2020 World Press Photo Contests and is brought to Shanghai with the support of the Consulate-General of the Netherlands in Shanghai, Shanghai International Culture Association, Shanghai Jiushi Art Museum as well as Shanghai Anchor Industrial Co., Ltd.

The exhibition highlights our natural world and human impact on the environment, a special category introduced by the World Press Photo Foundation in Amsterdam since 2018, which is rather pertinent during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The exhibition includes a variety of visual stories, ranging from pandas in China and poaching in South Africa to stories about trash recycling and innovative agriculture to feed the world.

When and where to see

The exhibition can be visited from November 15 to December 13 2020, Bund 18 Jiushi Art Gallery, Shanghai, China.
