Taking Shenzhen’s accelerated production model as its point of departure, “Real Mass Entrepreneurship” looks at the myth of the small technology hardware business owner as global hero. The exhibition title echoes the timely call for “mass entrepreneurship and innovation” in contemporary China. All newly commissioned for the exhibit, the works on view see a continuation of Simon Denny’s information technology-charged projects. Through his in-depth investigation of Shenzhen’s ecosystem, the artist reflects on the technology industry’s role in reshaping the world’s economic horizons.
