The 4th Shanghai Biennale 2002 featured three young artists, who were selected by its Curatorial Committee:

- Yang Fudong, China

- Angela Bullock, UK

- Jong Yeondoo, Korea

Through the ASEF's Cultural Grants programme, each artist received funding to implement an artistic project with an Asia-Europe dimension.

The Shanghai Biennale 2002 was held under the theme "Urban Creation," which set the stage for discussions on the fast-changing cultural patterns and lifestyles induced by accelerating urbanisation.
