THE SCENE

 

Shanghai is an exciting fusion of tradition and a vivid portrayal of a futuristic post-modern urban jungle. In the early 1990s, Shanghai's tallest building was the 24-floor Park Hotel—today, the city’s mesmerizing skyline resembles Olafur Eliasson’s multi-sensory kaleidoscopes. Forget everything you have ever known, seen or heard about the art world or Shanghai’s cultural scene—this city is going to teach it to you from scratch!
 
Shanghai represents the diverse character of the booming Chinese art scene.
Roughly split between three main centers: 

  • The industrial M50 district, which offers a visit to the oldest gallery in town, - ShangART, in addition to spontaneous drop-ins at independent artists' studios who work in this neighborhood.
  • The West Bound—Shanghai’s version of the Museum Mile in New York or South Bank in London—is home to The West Bund Long Museum and Made-in Gallery; both representing the more avant-garde movements in the contemporary Chinese art scene.
  • The French concession—a pleasant mix of cutting edge galleries such as Bank and Leo Xu—along with coffee shops, book stores, designer boutiques and hipster hang outs.
